Fermented drinks are all the rage these days, and although I made a few attempts to make kombucha, it didn’t work out so well. (Scoby molded-GROSS) So, I had to put that idea to rest.
Then, I came across a Pintrest pin about another fermented drink called Switchel. MUCH easier to make than kombucha! Plus, it’s really refreshing and full of vitamin c, enzymes, electrolytes and probiotics.
There are a lot of different recipes, but I go with what tastes good to me and, of course, I always add a few drops of essential oils in there like orange or lemon 😉 Try it and let me know what ya think!
- 4 cups filtered water
- 2 Tbsp grated ginger (fresh root is best)
- 1/4 cup black molasses (or honey)
- Juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (the good cloudy kind) not filtered
It can be kept in the fridge for a few days or on your kitchen counter. Mix or shake in a glass container and enjoy!
