Striking the perfect, irresistible mix of sweet and tart, peach blush kombucha is a great summertime treat. While peaches take center stage, hints of ginger and lemon juice elevate the kombucha into a more complex, delectable beverage.

Peach blush kombucha is a delicious, healthy, and easy-to-make second-fermentation recipe. We used green tea kombucha instead of black tea kombucha to allow the delicate, fruity flavors of the peach to truly shine.

Peach Blush Kombucha

  • Total Time:
    4 days

  • Yield:
    16 Servings 1x


This simple recipe combines the best summer flavors. You can think of it as a fruity, probiotic lemonade. Peaches and strawberries are my favorite combination, but you’re welcome to get creative.



  • 2 cups diced peaches
  • 1-inch ginger knob
  • 4 ounces strawberries
  • 2 ounces squeezed lemon juice
  • 14 cups of unflavored green tea kombucha


  1. Puree the peaches, lemon juice, ginger, and strawberries in a food processor or blender.
  2. Transfer the newly-blended mixture to a gallon-sized container, then add the green tea kombucha.
  3. Cover the top of the vessel with a clean cloth and rubber band and let it sit for 48 hours, between 68°F and 72°F.
  4. Pour the mixture into a large jar while straining it to remove excess fruit bits.
  5. Funnel the juice into bottles that have airtight lids.
  6. Set the lidded kombucha bottles in a clean place between 68°F and 72°F for 48 hours.
  7. Refrigerate the bottles for at least 6 hours before consuming. Enjoy!


This recipe assumes you already have green tea kombucha. If you don’t, brew homemade kombucha or buy a raw, unflavored, store-bought one.

I used green tea instead of black tea because I found the black tea a bit too robust. I didn’t want to overpower the delicate fruit flavors. That said, you’re free to experiment with the kombucha tea base.

You may use frozen fruits, like frozen strawberries and frozen peaches, to substitute fresh ones.

What Does Peach Blush Kombucha Taste Like?

A single sip of peach blush kombucha unleashes a delicious medley of flavors. The peaches offer a fresh, fruity sweetness, while the lemon juice brings a citrusy profile to the drink. The ginger also has a flavorful profile, bringing in a spicy and warm kick.

The green tea kombucha itself is pretty noteworthy too. It’s fizzy, slightly sweet, and tart. Unlike its black tea counterpart, the green kombucha tea base has slight vegetal and herbaceous hints. This complements the sweetness of the peach exceptionally well.

How Many Calories Are in a Peach Blush Kombucha?

One eight-ounce serving of homemade peach blush kombucha contains approximately 41 calories. Most calories come from the unflavored kombucha, which only has 2-3 grams of sugar per serving.

If you’re making a homemade batch of kombucha, calculating the exact calorie count can’t always be achieved. There will be slight variations, including how much sugar you add during the first fermentation, how long you ferment the tea, and if there’s any sugar added to the fruit.

How Much Caffeine Is in Peach Blush Kombucha?

Peach blush kombucha is made with green tea, which has a small amount of caffeine. On average, an 8 oz serving of peach blush kombucha contains 15 mg of caffeine. The exact amount of caffeine depends on how long you steep the tea and whether you use leaves or bags, among other factors.

Should You Make This Recipe with Young, Sweet Kombucha or Older, Sour Kombucha?

It’s up to you. I use an older, sour kombucha base so that the final kombucha is not overly sweet. The peach and strawberries are sweet enough, so I prefer to indulge in a more balanced kombucha flavor by allowing the probiotic drink to ferment slightly longer.

If you’re a fan of the sweeter things in life, preparing peach blush kombucha using younger kombucha is a viable option too. As previously mentioned, it’s all a matter of preference.
