Mojito Instant Kombucha


I am still going strong with making instant kombucha variations. This is my latest favorite....because mint is coming up fresh in my garden. Yay spring! I have been having an instant kombucha almost everyday between lunch and dinner. I find it takes the edge off my afternoon munchies, and this flavor tastes of summer which is making me quite happy. I hope you will enjoy it, too.

Mojito Instant Kombucha


1 cup apple juice
1/8 cup fresh mint leaves (about 10 medium sized leaves)
2 tsp apple cider vinegar, with the "mother"
2 tbsp lime juice
1 12 oz can seltzer water (plain or lime flavored)
1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds (optional)


Crush the mint leaves in your hands to release the flavor. Add all ingredients to a 24 ounce jar, stir and enjoy. It is even better after letting it sit in the refrigerator overnight to let the flavors combine. Also, if you use the chia seeds they will need some time to absorb the liquid and become more gel-like. I like to let them soak for at least an hour. I realize that this makes it not-quite-so-instant, but it is still a lot faster and easier than fermenting your own kombucha.

With Chia Seeds:                                             Without Chia Seeds:


  1. Woah, instant kombucha! This is so clever! I'm totally going to get my hands on some apple cider vinegar and give this a try. Thanks for the recipe!
