Just because you're avoiding booze doesn't mean you have to miss out on the fun when it comes to fancy drinks, right?
Whether you're feb-fasting for a short time, prefer to avoid alcohol altogether, or just feel like enjoying a booze-free bevvie, we reckon a kombucha mocktail is the perfect remedy (see what we did there?).
This lovely concoction - adapted from a recipe by The Core Health - ups the fancy factor big time by featuring flavoured ice cubes and a homemade compote. We guarantee you won't feel like you're missing out one bit.
- 4-5 thyme sprigs (1 tablespoon leaves removed)
- 1 cup blueberries
- 750ml bottle Remedy Kombucha Original
- 1.5 cups organic frozen or fresh blueberries
- 2 tbs water
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
HOW TO MAKE IT:
- Make ice cubes by place 2-3 lavender leaves and 2-3 blueberries in the holes of an empty ice cube tray, cover with filtered water and place in the freezer to set over night.
- To make the blueberry compote combine 1.5 cups of frozen or fresh blueberries with all other ingredients into a small saucepan over a simmering heat.
- Once the berries have been cooked through and stewed for around 5-6 minutes remove from the heat and mash with a fork, allow to cool slightly before stirring in the chia seeds, sit.
- To assemble, add in the ice cubes, a few fresh blueberries plus a lashing of the compote, your spirit of choosing, then top with Remedy Kombucha.
