Kombucha Vinegar: Smoothie Experiment 1

kombucha smoothie chocolate bananaI’m currently reading The Big Book of Kombucha by the people from Kombucha Kamp, and I saw that one of their flavor profiles was banana and peanut butter. I think the idea was to flavor the kombucha during second stage fermentation with these ingredients, but I thought that it sounded more like a really awesome smoothie flavor. Since I am addicted to chocolate, I decided to also add some chocolate sauce.

Recipe:

1 dl (3.4 fl.oz) kombucha vinegar (would recommend to try with regular kombucha)

1 whole (peeled) banana

1 tablespoon peanut butter

1 tablespoon italian hazelnut chocolate sauce (could also use Nutella, or any other chocolate sauce).

Although each of these ingredients is super good on its own, for whatever reason, I did NOT like this smoothie at all in the slightest. The kombucha vinegar gave it too much of a bite. Maybe it would taste better with regular kombucha? If anyone tries it with plain kombucha, I would love to receive feedback on how you liked it.

Other than the bite from the vinegar, the smoothie would have been delicious.
