Easy Kombucha Fruit Leathers.
So, you have made a crap ton of kombucha and now you have found yourself with a crap ton of SCOBYs.
Don’t you worry homie, I’ve got a fun super easy solution to this “problem.” If we can even call it a problem because I mean, come on, SCOBYs are your friend. We want them around but not to have more than you know what to do with, right?!
Am I right!
Today we are making some fruit leathers, Kombucha style. This is a perfect way to put all those SCOBYs to work, all the while putting a smile on your kid’s face.
Or yours, I am not here to judge.
It is also a perfect way to get some much needed probiotics in your family’s belly. You see those beautiful SCOBY’s of yours contain all sorts of amazing bacterias and yeast, don’t freak out we are talking about the good bacterias and yeasts.
Easy to make Kombucha Fruit Leathers
What y’all need:
2 cups Kombucha SCOBY
1 cup Kombucha tea
3 cups organic frozen or fresh fruit
1/4 organic cane sugar
dehydrator or an oven, whatever!
What y’all want to do is:
Take your SCOBY out, using gloves or extremely clean hands. We don’t want to taint all of those beautiful SCOBYs left behind. Cut it up into chunks and throw in a blender.
Add your tea to the blender. And blend like a mofo.
Once you got that all nice a smooth. In a sauce pan add your fruit and sugar. Heat just enough to release those natural sugars and until a little liquid appears.
Next, throw your fruit in the blender with your SCOBY puree and puree your little heart out again.
Take your parchment paper and spread a nice layer of your SCOBY/fruit puree. If you spread to thin, your roll up will be brittle. If you spread to thick, your roll up will not roll like it should! Like I said, a nice layer! An 1/8 of an inch, if you will.
Place your parchment paper on your dehydrator racks and let dehydrate for about 12-18 hours. Or until your roll ups are nice and tacky but not gooey.
I know, I am extremely precise. 😉
If y’all are using an oven, same concept. Turn your oven on the lowest setting and allow to bake until you achieve that tacky not gooey texture. The amount of hours depends on your oven. I suggest checking on it every hour or so.
Now, how easy was that?!
Oh but wait, there is more….
…and if you have some left over but not enough to make another layer, make some popsicles with it. Another delicious treat for the kiddos. I got these popsicle molds from amazon and love them. They are small, the perfect size for an after dinner treat for the kids.
Don’t let those SCOBYs go to waste y’all.
And they loved them y’all!!
Happy fruit leather making!
