Recipe: Any Fruit Juice Fizzy Kombucha

Flavoring kombucha is a fun way to keep your family excited about culturing. One of the easiest ways to make flavored fruity kombucha is to use fruit juice. Use any juice — store-bought or fresh squeezed. Here are a few ideas...
  • Grape juice
  • Apple juice
  • Strawberry or other berry juice
  • Pineapple juice
  • Orange juice
  • Vegetable juices
If choosing vegetable juices, it may help to either mix the vegetable juice with a fruit juice, or add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar to your bottle along with the vegetable juice, to get a more fizzy finished drink. Carbonation can only be created if there is sugar present for the second fermentation. Avoid any store-bought juices that are “light” or sweetened with artificial sweeteners that are not true sugar.


  • 2-3 Tbsp. fruit juice
  • Enough freshly brewed kombucha to fill a pint-sized container


  1. Add fruit juice to a pint-size vessel. Fill the rest of the bottle with freshly brewed kombucha, leaving about 1/2 inch headspace.
  2. Cap tightly and leave in a warm place to culture up to 14 days, depending on the temperature. Once kombucha is carbonated to your liking, transfer to the refrigerator.
  3. Serve cold, over ice if desired.
