Yesterday I gave you a little teaser for one of the most amazing drinks that I have ever tasted.  And guess what?  It is non-alcoholic and Whole 30-compliant.  Yes.  That is possible!

sparkling_berry_kombucha_spritzer 2Quite possibly one of the best things about this drink recipe is that it is not only healthy, but so easy to make.  We are talking three ingredients: kombucha, sparkling water, and frozen berries.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!  Except there is no lemon involved.  But you get the point!

sparkling_berry_kombucha_spritzer 6I’ll be the first to admit that doing the Whole 30 during the summer when anyone and everyone of age is drinking is not the easiest thing ever.  In fact, sometimes I get downright jealous when I would love to just be sipping on a nice cold beer or a glass of wine.  But I have surprised myself these past few weeks.  It turns out that it is 100% possible to not drink alcoholic beverages and still have a truly fantastic time.

Paleo, Whole 30, Non-Alcoholic, Gluten-Free, Vegan

Serves 2

sparkling_berry_kombucha_spritzerIngredients

1 12 oz can of sparkling water (I used the Berry flavor from La Croix)
1 16 oz bottle of kombucha (I used the Passionberry Bliss flavor from Synergy)
1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries

If you are doing the Whole 30, be sure to check that your sparkling water and kombucha do not have added sugar.

Please keep in mind that this recipe is totally customizable.  I imagine it would be great with a mango sparkling water, mango kombucha, and frozen mango chunks.  Get creative with your combinations!

Directions

1. In a 12 ounce glass, pour half (six ounces) of the sparkling water into a glass.

2. Top off the glass with kombucha, leaving approximately one-inch of space at the top of the glass.

3. Add 1/4 cup of frozen berries as a flavorful and colorful replacement for ice.

4. Repeat steps one through three for the second glass.

    This looks good! I use lemon or lime sparkling soda with 1 fresh squeezed lemon to make lemonade. It tastes great. Alissa Apel recently posted...WW: Graham Cave {Linky}My Profile

      That sounds amazing! Thank you for the recommendation. I'll give it a try :)
  • Alli O July 29, 2015, 7:29 pm
    I never thought to use kombucha as a mixer, such a good idea! My favorites are trilogy, bilberry, and passionberry
    • ClnEatingVegGrl July 30, 2015, 8:29 am
      Isn't the Passionberry SO good? I'll have to try the other two flavors you suggested!!
  • Dani @ DaniCaliforniaCooks July 30, 2015, 3:01 pm
    Sometimes kombucha kind of gives me a buzz...not sure if it's all mental though! :) Dani @ DaniCaliforniaCooks recently posted...Kale Salmon Nicoise (paleo)My Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl July 31, 2015, 8:31 am
      Well it does have the VERY slightest amount of alcohol in it (though it is pretty much irrelevant). It's probably mostly a mental thing ;)

      Thanks so much, Chelsea! I hope you find more that you love :)
  • Gina August 9, 2015, 6:45 pm
    This drink looks amazing! I can't wait to try it. I agree with you, it's so hard to do Whole30 during the summer which is why I don't want to do another Whole30 until fall or maybe even January. I'm going to do a Whole15 at the end of August which will hopefully be more bearable! Gina recently posted...5 Good Habits I Developed Thanks to Whole30My Profile

      I bet fall will be a great time to do it... get it in before the holidays! :)
