Raspberry and mint kombucha is my absolute favorite flavored kombucha so far, mainly because I love raspberries.

This kombucha actually tastes a lot like raspberry mojito (but is much healthier!).

I’ve been growing my own plants for the first time this year and mint has been the easiest and most successful one I’ve grown so far. I can highly recommend growing your own mint because it’s so easy and a lot cheaper than buying herbs from the supermarket.

I’ve also found some raspberry bushes nearby and was able to pick some raspberries for free. July is the best time to pick your own raspberries but you’ll also be able to buy them in the summer. You’ll only need a handful for this recipe.

Adding fruit to your kombucha is easy: you blend up a handful of fruit with a bit of kombucha, pour it into a clip top bottle and top it up with more kombucha. You can add a few mint leaves to the blender or directly into the bottle. The kombucha then needs to sit for another 4 days at room temperature after which the raspberries and mint can be filtered out and the drink can be transferred to the fridge where it will keep for many months.

For more kombucha flavors try my elderflower kombucha, elderberry kombucha or rhubarb and elderberry kombucha.

    Do you mean a funnel rather than a colander? I’m just wondering whether a colander is necessary to strain off the juice before fermenting, or whether this is an error?

      Yes indeed, this is just an error! Thanks for pointing it out!
