Probiotic Piña Colada Kombucha

  • Total Time:
    5 minutes

  • Yield:
    2 Servings 1x


Replacing rum with kombucha makes for a healthy mocktail filled with probiotics to be enjoyed on hot summer days (or any day). The acidity of the kombucha pairs nicely with the sweetness of the pineapple and coconut flavors.



  • 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
  • 6 oz black tea kombucha
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 slice of pineapple to garnish (optional)


  1. Combine the pineapple chunks and kombucha in a blender.
  2. Blend for about 10 seconds.
  3. Add the coconut milk to the blender.
  4. Blend for another 10 seconds or until smooth.
  5. Pour into a cup and garnish with a slice of pineapple (and maybe a little umbrella if you’re feeling festive!).
  6. Enjoy immediately!


If you prefer white or green tea kombucha, you can use either of these instead of black tea kombucha.

If you prefer to use fresh pineapple, you must choose a good, ripe pineapple, cut it into chunks, and blend it with ice to give it its frothy texture and make it cold.

If you want to make it a cocktail, add a shot of rum in step 3 and enjoy!

What Does a Piña Colada Kombucha Taste Like?

This drink tastes sweet and slightly tart, like a traditional piña colada. The sweet, tangy flavor of pineapple mixed with coconut milk’s rich, creamy flavor pairs very nicely with the slightly sour notes of kombucha.

How Much Caffeine Is In a Piña Colada Kombucha?

There are only around 6 mg of caffeine in the piña colada kombucha. The pineapple and coconut milk do not contain caffeine, so you only get a small amount from the 3 ounces of kombucha.

How Many Calories Are In a Piña Colada Kombucha?

Probiotic piña colada kombucha has around 300 calories per serving. If you are looking for a low-calorie version, use unsweetened coconut milk, though this will change the flavor profile a bit and tone down the sweetness.

Also, different brands of coconut milk have different calorie counts, so be sure to check the label before heading to the checkout line.

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

This is entirely up to your discretion. You can use older, sour kombucha if you want more of a tart flavor in your drink. However, if you want the flavor profile to remain sweet, using young, sweet kombucha is your best bet.
