Kombucha Blueberry Mocktails

These Kombucha blueberry mocktails, are a great addition to any summer gathering! When the sun is shining and maybe you are looking for an alcohol-free alternative, these are great.

Using kombucha, which ideally would be homemade, but if you are not ready to start making your own, a shop brought flavour free kombucha is ok. Kombucha adds a nice fizz to the mocktail, and all that fermented goodness is great for your gut!

Although I have used blueberries in this recipe, you could use different fruits, such as blackberries or raspberries or even mango as an alternative.

When enjoying a mocktail I would suggest that you have it with maybe a handful of nuts, this adds in some protein, so you don’t get a sharp spike in blood sugar.

Mocktails taste great – a good way to keep hydrated in the summer and provide a delicious alcohol-free alternative without feeling you are missing out! If you make these Kombucha blueberry mocktails do let me know!

Makes 2 Mocktails 

1 cup of blueberries

2 cups of water

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

To serve

Ice cubes

Kombucha – flavour free or homemade 

Mint leaves 

Method for Kombucha Blueberry Mocktail:

  1. To a pan on a medium heat add blueberries and water and let it come to the boil
  2. Once boiling add in the maple syrup 
  3. Lower the heat, mash the blueberries using the back of a spatula then simmer for another 10-15 minutes 
  4. For the flavours to mix in, I recommend allowing the syrup to cool at room temperature for 2-3 hours 
  5. Then strain the mixture into a clear bowl, cover and keep in the fridge until ready to serve. Not to waste the leftover Blueberry mix, it goes great with some yogurt as a sweet snack.
  6. To serve fill two glasses with the blueberry syrup, add ice cubes
  7. Then add in an unflavoured kombucha or your own homemade version, stir to combine well
  8. Garnish with mint leaves
