1 bottle (16 oz) Power Greens Health-Ade Kombucha

Directions: In a large pitcher, stir together the Power Greens Health-Ade Kombucha, wine, and vodka. Add in the sliced fruit and stir to combine. Place in the fridge to chill.

Kiwi Jalapeño Cucumber Popsicles with Coconut Cream
1 English Cucumber, sliced very thin
2-3 Kiwi, peeled and sliced very thin
1 jalapeño, minced, optional*
2 bottles Health-Ade Kiwi Jalapeño Cucumber Kombucha
1 pint Dairy Free Coconut Ice Cream, softened
Directions: Prepare the cucumber, kiwi, and jalapeño (if using). Make slices as thin as possible. Fill each popsicle cavity approximately half way with fruit. Divide the Health Ade kombucha into the popsicle cavities, until they reach about 2/3-3/4 full. Cover the popsicle mold, and place popsicle sticks into the mold. Gently place the popsicle mold into the freezer. Once the popsicles are nearly solid, at least six hours, allow the coconut ice cream to soften.
Once soft, use a spoon and divide the ice cream on top of the popsicles, pressing it into the mold and completely filling the rest of the cavities. Smooth the ice cream and place the popsicles into the freezer once more to completely freeze.
To release the popsicles, run the bottom of the mold under warm water to allow the popsicles to gently release. Serve immediately.
Jalapeño Kiwi Cucumber Quick Pickle
1 cup white wine vinegar
2 tsp salt
1 tbsp. honey
1 1/2 cups Jalapeño-Kiwi-Cucumber kombucha (the magic ingredient of this extraordinary quick pickle recipe)
1 large jalapeño
2 large garlic cloves
4-6 large Persian cucumbers, cut into thick slices.
Directions: In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the vinegar, salt, and honey until the salt is dissolved and the honey is fully incorporated. Set aside and allow to cool slightly (5-10 minutes). Stir in 1 1/2 cups of Health-ade’s Jalapeño-Kiwi-Cucumber kombucha.
Thinly slice the jalapeño, and smash the garlic cloves with the back of a knife (coarsely chopping them works too). Divide the jalapeño and garlic between two large (24 oz) glass jars. Layer in the sliced cucumbers until both jars are full to the top.
Carefully pour the pickle mixture into the two jars until pickle slices are fully submerged. Close the jars and secure the lids tightly. Give each jar a (very) gentle shake. Refrigerate at least overnight or ideally, 24 hours to get the best flavor. See? You can create this quick pickle recipe with no sweat at all!
