It’s no secret that probiotics—the gut-friendly bacteria found in fermented foods—are a powerful superfood. They’ve been used for centuries to improve digestion, immunity, mood, and hormonal health. Plus, they’re uniquely healthful and perfect to enjoy any time of day and in any season.
This beautifully illustrated cookbook makes it easy and fun to fit probiotics into your busy routine with refreshing fermented drinks you can make at home. It turns out there’s much, much more to enjoy beyond premade kombucha and kefir. Here are 50 recipes for eight different elixirs—from Chinese Junto Mexican Pineapple Tepache—that will bring surprising flavors from around the world right to your table.
