So this is one of our favourite recipes from our e-book "Inner Ecology Cookbook" which uses only ingredients approved by the Body Ecology Diet. If you have had trouble with your digestive system this is a great book to check out.
I've bought the "Zukay" brand probiotic drinks in the past and they were always pretty good. I knew that I was drinking something healthy, I could basically FEEL the beneficial bacteria jumping about. I tried to recreate the drink at home and it totally worked! I'd say it's even fizzier than the Zukay drinks. If that makes sense....The one I made is a bit tangier because of the apple. And if you are avoiding fruit...good news! The probiotic bacteria eat up the sugar while in the fermentation process.
So all you need is:
3 large carrots
1/3 of a cucumber (crucial! I tried making it with no cucumber and it didn't ferment)
2 inch piece of ginger (about the size of a golf ball)
2 cups of water
1/4 tsp sea salt
The powder from 1 probiotic capsule
Either juice the veggies and fruit through a juicer and then add the water OR if you don't have a juicer you can blend them together with the water in a blender and then squeeze though a cheesecloth or nut milk bag. Add the salt and probiotic powder. Pour into a clean mason jar and close the lid firmly. Let it sit at room temperature for 48 hours or until significantly fizzy. Refrigerate and enjoy the bubbly!
