Digestive Kombucha Bottle Flavoring - adding turmeric, ginger, and cloves to your home-brewed kombucha for even more digestive benefits | via scoutandwiles.com

I started drinking kombucha early on in my health journey and found that it eases digestive functions and helps with gas and bloating. I love kombucha so much that I actually brew it at home!

I’ve been exploring ways that I can make my home-brewed kombucha even more digestive-friendly. Today, I’m sharing my recipe for digestive kombucha bottle flavoring.

Turmeric

Turmeric is a root that is dried and ground into a spice. It has tons of digestive benefits. It is anti-inflammatory, which can ease some painful digestive problems. Turmeric stimulates bile, which helps the body digest food and absorb some nutrients. It can also decrease gas and bloating. All good things!

Ginger

Ginger is another root, and I love using it in kombucha and smoothies.

It can alleviate stomach pains and calm nausea, which is why I always keep ginger chews in my tummy kit.

I recommend using ginger in its root form for this recipe, as it is readily available at most grocery stores. Having some on-hand in your kitchen is a great idea if you’re trying to support digestion naturally.

Cloves

Cloves can relieve nausea, vomiting, gas, and stomachaches. However, their strong flavor can also upset the stomach, so we’ll just use one.

Digestive Kombucha Bottle Flavoring

For each 16 oz bottle

Ingredients
  • 16 oz mature kombucha
  • 1 tsp dried ginger or fresh ginger root, chopped or sliced
  • ¼ tsp powdered turmeric or ½ tsp fresh turmeric root
  • 1 whole clove
Steps
  1. Add the ginger, turmeric, and coriander to the bottle before the kombucha. If you’re using bottles with a narrow mouth, it may be easier to add the spices using a funnel.
  2. Fill the rest of the bottle with mature kombucha and seal. You can refrigerate it right away or leave it at room temperature for no more than 2 days to build carbonation.

  1. This looks so healthy! I haven’t tried Kombucha, but I’m taking a daily probiotic now, which is fun. Also, I’ve heard a ton about tumeric lattes and ginger lattes, so this looks really interesting!

    1. I definitely feel healthy when I drink it 🙂 I think the turmeric flavor goes really well with the kombucha, and it all combines for great digestive benefits!

  2. I LOVE ginger flavored kombucha! My favorite brand is the Kevita Master Brew! Tastes almost like ginger ale without all the sugar. Maybe I’ll try making my own some day.

  3. Oh I LOVE kombucha! I’ve always wanted to try to make my own at home but haven’t found a good starter. Do you have any recommendations? I really enjoy drinking it because of it’s tangy flavor but it helps my digestion and upset stomach as well. 🙂
