I've been on a Kombucha craze lately and so this mocktail makes for the perfect addition to my love for a good healthy drink with a fancy vibe. Honestly, I'm so excited to be sharing this Mango Lemonade Kombucha Mocktail because it's so incredibly easy to make, but also equally as delish! Plus, you're sure to love the added health benefits that comes infused from all of the ingredients involved.
There's just something about this refreshing, fruity, tropical, perfectly sweet, and smooth feel that you get from this mocktail, especially with the transition of the Spring season that'll be happening soon. The creative flavors in this drink makes it the perfect sip for dinners, brunches, and even fancy occasions. It's super versatile.
Plus, because it's totally alcohol-free, it's something that can be enjoyed with the entire family. Oh and if you're looking to get that grassy, smoky aroma, and bright fire that tequila often exudes ----no worries! I love using Ritual Zero Proof, which has AMAZING alcohol-free alternatives to actual alcohol flavors to help bring together your mocktails in a great way and their Tequila Alternative is perfect for this particular kombucha-infused mocktail.
Either way, everyone is guaranteed to love these! Be sure to watch all recipes via IG Reels for a nice visual!
And if you're in the mood for something tropical with a hint of fruity, then I recommend trying my Pineapple Jalapeño Lime Mocktail because it's the best balance between sweet + spicy.
Mango Lemonade Kombucha Mocktail is super easy to make, requires just a handful of ingredients, comes whipped together in 5 minutes, and is the perfect balance between refreshing + the right amount of sweetness. For a smooth, refreshing flavor + texture, I recommend using a 100% organic mango juice like Lakewood Organic's version, which is a nice addition by the way! However, you can always use your fave mango or mango lemonade blend.
Basically, Kombucha is a fermented drink made by adding bacteria and yeast to a mixture black or green tea and sugar. In the recent years, it has become increasingly popular. Personally, I enjoy drinking GT's Synergy Kombucha which are high-quality and comes in an array of flavors.
Yes, actually! Kombuacha and other fermented foods are full of antioxidants and and probiotics, which help with digestion. According to research, the live bacteria in Kombucha actually boosts the health of the intestinal cells and help to make the body more efficient.
The first thing you can make for these mocktails for a fancy/fun feel is the ice cubes, if you don't plan on using regular crushed ice. You can literally add blueberries, + rosemary sprig pieces in your favorite ice cube tray, top with mango juice + lemon juice, set it and forget it for a minimum of 3-4 hours (or overnight) until ice cubes are formed.
Then, you whip together the mocktail ingredients and assemble. Serve and enjoy!
Here’s what you need for these Mango Lemonade Kombucha Mocktails:
If you’d like to serve this as a cocktail, you can add your favorite alcohol to the mixture. The best alcohol for this mocktail is tequila, which is a slightly spicier liquor----making it perfect for fruity drinks. As I stated before, Ritual Zero Proff has a delicious Tequila alternative to bring this drink together. However, these other types of alcohols (just about 1 ounce or so) can work great with this Mango Lemonade Kombucha Mocktail flavor combo also:

First and foremost, the flavors in this simple and easy Mango Lemonade Kombucha Mocktail is enough to convince anyone, however, here are a few more reasons why you'll love this recipe:
The great news is that Kombucha has many health benefits besides gut health which include:
If you'd prefer to make your own mango juice instead of using a store-bought version or you just have mangoes on hand that you need to get rid of, no worries! You can definitely make your own juice for this mocktail by doing the steps below. You'll need: 2 medium ripe mangoes (peeled + cubed), 2 Tbsps of maple syrup, 2 cups filtered water.
To make in a blender: Add all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend on high-speed until smooth. Pour juice through strainer and into a bowl or pitcher and chill until ready to use.
One of the greatest phenomenons when it comes to ice cubes has been seeing super clear ice cubes from those clear ice cube systems or molds and wanting to try it, but not necessarily wanting to have a huge contraption in my freezer. Haha. Anyone else feel my pain? Whelp, no need to worry----I've done my research and tested it out a bit and have found some solutions to help those of us who don't have any fancy system to making clear ice cubes. Here are a few ways:
Tip #1: It's best to use water that is distilled or super filtered to avoid gasses and dissolved oxygen, which are the two things that cause our ice to "fog up" when frozen.
Tip #2: Boil your water and freeze your water hot. Again, much to my previous point, this removes any dissolved oxygen or gasses. Just be sure to carefully pour the hot water into your ice cube tray or mold-----preferably one made from materials that naturally insulates like silicone. Also, ensure that your tray lays FLAT while freezing.
Tip #3: Slow freeze your ice cubes. This should be done for about 24 hours, which allows any impurities to be forced out of the ice---resulting in much clearer ice.
I’m all about big, edible garnishes in my mocktails. Here’s what I like to add to glasses:
