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.

Jægersborggade, Copenhagen

Once ruled by gangs, this cute little street in Copenhagen has been taken over by unique shops, including artist galleries, second-hand clothing stores, organic eateries, and cafes.

My boyfriend and I spent hours on this street, just popping into the little shops and browsing.  On the weekend there are limited hours (sometimes only 11-2pm), so if you plan to visit, you should pay attention to the opening hours.

Some of our favorites:

Copenhagen is much more expensive than in Austria.  In Austria, a good latte can be purchased for around €3-€4 at a cafe.  In Copenhagen, we spent around €6 per latte.  Since I cannot eat gluten, I left it to my boyfriend to try the Danish pastries.  The one depicted below is basically a cinnamon roll, which I am told was delicious.  And, since I am addicted to Kombucha, I had to try the coffee Kombucha.  It had a very unique flavor which I will definitely have to try to recreate at home.
