Overview

The health benefits of probiotics are no secret—doctors from both the Western and Eastern medicine camps sing the praises of probiotics for their positive effects on digestion, metabolism, and the immune system. Enthusiasts of kombucha—a bubbly probiotic drink now sold regularly in stores from Manhattan delis to Seattle food co-ops—point to its high levels of B vitamins and amino acids, improving mood, energy levels, joint function, ligament health, and skin health. Now you can learn to make kombucha, as well as numerous other probiotic drinks, at home!

With clear step-by-step directions, beautiful photographs, and more than seventy-five recipes, this is the ultimate guide to homemade probiotic drinks. You’ll find numerous recipes for:

Kombucha
Jun
Kefir
Lacto-fermented lemonade
Ginger beer
Cultured vegetable juices
And more!

In addition, you’ll find recipes for making yogurt, smoothies, and kefir ice cream. Fermenting drinks may seem daunting, but Julia Mueller shows how it can be fun, much more cost-effective than buying ready-made drinks from the store, and delicious!
