Tangerine carrot kombucha is sweet and earthy. It’s a healthy drink packed with vitamin C and vitamin A. This kombucha juice has a touch of carbonation and is perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up.

You’ll need a juicer for optimum freshness since tangerines and carrots lose nutrients quickly after juicing. Or, if you prefer, look for cold-pressed organic carrot juice and tangerine juice at your local health food store.

Sarah first tried kombucha in 2015 and she was hooked. Her favorite flavor is ginger, but cranberry comes in a close second. She made her own for many years and loved experimenting with fruit flavors.
