Flavoring homemade kombucha is such a fun yet suspenseful adventure. Because you can never be sure exactly how the flavors will transform over the fermentation process, and you have to wait a few days to find out!
You can go crazy with it or keep it simple with pureed fruit. This Passionfruit Kombucha are on the simple side and is one of out favourite kombucha flavours!
There are two main fermentation phases when making homemade kombucha:
- First Fermentation: This is when you transform sweet tea into tart and delicious kombucha (see our comprehensive guide to homemade kombucha here)
- Second Fermentation: This is when you carbonate the kombucha by adding sugars (like passionfruit!) and bottling it.
In order to make this Passionfruit Kombucha, you will need to have completed the first fermentation already and have some kombucha that’s ready to be carbonated!
Ingredients that you need
- Kombucha from a first fermentation: You’ve brewed your kombucha with the help of your SCOBY and it’s the perfect balance of sweet and tart (step-by-step first fermentation instructions here).
- Passionfruit: You can use fresh or frozen passion fruits to make kombucha!
How long can I keep it?
The acidity of the kombucha will prevent the fruit from going bad! After you’ve carbonated your kombucha, store it in the fridge until ready to drink (it should last a few weeks).
