Double or triple the recipe to serve more people. If you’re serving a crowd, make the juice a few hours ahead. You can keep the juice for up to 8 hours in the fridge. Refrigerate the juice in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid.

Black tea kombucha works best in this recipe since it has a bold flavor that tastes best with the juice. However, you could also use white or green tea-based kombucha.

Make sure to purchase unsweetened aloe juice. If possible, buy an organic brand. You can find aloe juice at your local health food store or on Amazon.

Add a half-inch of fresh ginger to your juicer first for a zingy addition to this kombucha juice. Or, add a pinch of turmeric along with the aloe juice. Turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory.
