I've made my own for a while before, but only drink 1-3 bottles per week and with my travel/limited time I've now switched to buying GT's again. Especially since they reintroduced the Classic stronger variety (actually raw, more health benefits) after the Kombucha Outlaw last Summer.
They really give me some good energy as well as help digestion, and now with the Chia varieties, I can sneak in some extra healthy nutrient packed fat with Omega 3's (although my main sources are still fish oil and grass fed meats/pastured eggs and yogurt, since you only convert 10-15% of Omega 3's in the ALA form to the beneficial stuff).
The Chia versions aren't carbonated, so easier to drink for those not used to Kombucha, and they remind me of slurping jello as a child. I've tried Cherry and Raspberry so far and they are delightful.
The also new "Third Eye Chai" flavor which is exactly as awesome as it sounds.
Now for Chocolate. Cookies.
I'd like to call them Triple Dark Chocolate Cookie Dough Almond Fudge Cookies!!!
I actually followed the recipe for once (since it didn't require any grains/sweetener/dairy), almost:
- 1/4 Cup Cacao Nibs and 2 Squares of 88% Dark Monkey Chocolate (the best)
