Hello luvs!

You know that we love our kombucha.

And we adore our kombucha  cocktails. We love seeing all of you enjoying them as well ;)

We were thinking yesterday that we wanted to make something new and fun using kombucha. We were picturing something simple and creamy.

We have a ton of cashews on hand so we thought of blending cashews with kombucha to see what it would do.

A simple idea, really, that someone else might of probably already thought of it before. But we experimented with doing it – it worked! Cashews are perfect for making anything creamy and yummy.

Really just have fun with this recipe. Add more or less kombucha till you like the consistency and flavor. We just liked the idea of enjoying our kombucha a little differently.

How we make creamy kombucha cocktail with cashews.

We left this recipe ‘virgin’ but you could always spice it up a little with some of your favorite liquor or something.  In the cocktail we used ginger flavored kombucha, but you could use any flavor that is your favorite. We just LOVE the ginger one so that is what we used in the recipe.

*Note: what flavor kombucha you use might alter the flavor.

 Twins Question: Ever have a creamy kombucha before? Do you like Kombucha?
