Instructables
Picture of Kombucha Juice
This is an instructable for a juicing recipe that involves fresh juice from fruits, vegetables and kombucha. There are two things you will need to taste this living drink, a juicer, and kombucha. If you've never juiced before I will walk you through the steps we take, from prepping the work station, ingredients, to juicing. If you're an experienced juicer, I encourage you to try your own recipe,  and mix it with kombucha.

The juicing portion of this particular drink required these basic Ingredients to make...
-A Juicer!
-One bunch of Siberian Kale
-Two Medium-sized Carrots
-Two Medium-sized Apples
-A Stick of Celery
-One Lemon
-A Small bunch of Swiss chard
-A one-inch cube of Ginger


If you're looking for vegetables, I recommend you go to a local farmers market, or carefully hunt through your mother's garden for vegetables. The best tasting vegetables are fresh from a farmer or your own garden.





Step 3: Peel, Cut, or Chop Your Fruits!

Depending on the Juicer you use, you may need to cut the ingredients into smaller pieces that can be processed.
For the Omega VRT400, we core our Apples and then chop them into smaller pieces.
Lemons are also chopped into smaller pieces. If you want a sweeter lemon flavor you can always keep the rinds on the lemon.

I never thought about mixing kombucha with fresh juice after the brewing process. This makes me want to get a mother and start brewing again. Very nice pics and explanations! That last picture is my favorite, so pretty!
