Fruit Kvass

Here is another awesome probiotic beverage.  Fruit kvass is usually a bit sweeter and less astringent than kombucha, so if you are looking for an alternative, give fruit kvass a try!


Fruit Kvass - 1 quart

  • 1 apple chopped
  • 1 handful berries
  • 1 inch ginger sliced or minced (your preference)
  • 1/2 cup whey
  • Water to fill

Put ingredients in jar, fill with water leaving 1 inch at top. Sit in room temperature 2-3 days.  It will last in fridge a few weeks.  Drink a couple ounces a day, or start off smaller.

*Kvass can be made with any fruit combo, vegetable combo or fruit and vegetable combo.  Experiment!
