There was a time in my life the phrase “kombucha granita” would have sounded like a foreign language. I would have no idea what the heck that was. I definitely wouldn’t have guessed it was a delicious dessert! But these days, kombucha lines the shelves of grocery stores in as wide a variety of flavors as you can imagine. Fruits of all kinds, greens, herbs, and spices–where do you even start? With a base flavor of orange and grapefruit, and the delightfully, springy addition of basil, this granita works well with so many different kinds of kombucha. I’ve made it with lemon, berry, and ginger and would love to try peach, pineapple, and mango in the future. Maybe even one of the herbal flavors like hibiscus.
Don’t have, can’t find, or can’t afford kombucha? Use sparkling water, pineapple juice, or additional orange juice instead.
Are you suffering from adrenal fatigue?
Are You Tired and Wired? is one of my favorite books on adrenal fatigue with chronic illness. It’s a comprehensive yet straightforward examination of the factors at work and home that contribute to chronic adrenal dysfunction and the diet, lifestyle adjustments, and emotional reprogramming that can help fix it. A healthcare provider with a focus on women’s health, Marcelle Pick will help you identify what type of adrenal dysfunction you suffer from and provide an easy-to-follow, science-based program to help you restore balance to your life. I found it extremely helpful with my own chronic fatigue!
- Combine the orange juice, grapefruit juice, and basil in a blender and process until smooth.
- Pour into a 13x9" baking dish along with the kombucha and freeze for 30 minutes.
- Use a fork to scrape apart any solid pieces that have formed, then return to the freezer for 30 minutes. Repeat 2-3 more times, until you have a crumbly, icy texture.
