Midoriko Superfood Kombucha
Say whhhhaaaaaat? Green kombucha? For real???
Now you might be thinking that I'm taking this whole holistic wellness thing a little too far with this one, but bear with me! I made a delicious super-powered kombucha using my Midoriko Superfood Powder, which is my special all natural proprietary blend of wheatgrass, spirulina and chlorella that both detoxes and replenishes you for optimum health.
You can check out my Fall Chai Spice Recipe for more info on the numerous benefits of kombucha. All I can say about my Midoriko Kombucha is don't knock it 'till you try it! It's a great way to get in both your beneficial greens AND your probiotic goodness
Ingredients (for Midoriko kombucha)
6 cups boiling water
1/4 C sugar
1/2 C starter kombucha (I used my golden milk kombucha)
Ingredients (second fermentation, optional)
1-2 T lemon juice
Kombucha to fill 16 oz. (Approx. 2 cups)
Directions (first fermentation)
Boil water, stir in sugar until dissolved
Add Midoriko Powder and let cool completely
Strain with a coffee filter over a fine mesh sieve
Add SCOBY+starter kombucha to the Midoriko mixture
Cover jar with a cloth or towel secured with a rubber band (I also use a paper towel or coffee filter secured with a mason jar lid ring)
Let ferment 5-10 days
Remove film that forms on top of kombucha and discard.
Transfer to fridge-that slows the fermentation process down so it won’t keep getting stronger and stronger
Directions (Midoriko Kombucha 2nd fermentation, optional)
Add lemon juice and Midoriko Kombucha to container
Stir to combine and place kitchen towel or cloth on the jar again
Let ferment a second time for 3-7 days, or longer if desired
