This short book is a guide to making your own fermented, probiotic drinks. Using beneficial cultures, like the good bacteria in yogurt, you will learn how to create healthy, delicious drinks that benefit your body. For thousands of years, long before sugary soft drinks were invented, our ancestors enjoyed the whole food goodness of fermented drinks such as kefir, kombucha, and naturally fermented ciders and sodas. If delicious raw food smoothies were not around 5,000 years ago, it is only because our Stone Age ancestors did not have good blenders.

Fermented drinks are tasty, easy to prepare, and incredibly healthy. Yogurt, kefir, kombucha, and other probiotic drinks are made by adding cultures to base ingredients such as milk, sweet tea, or fruit juice. The cultures consist of beneficial microorganisms, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, which add live enzymes, B vitamins, and protein to your food.
