About the Recipe

The perfect summer drink for those fresh, ripe strawberries! This fermented
strawberry soda is crisp & bubbly, strawberry sweet, and filled with nourishing,
gut-friendly probiotics!


● 5 cups strawberries

● 1 cup organic pure cane sugar

● 7 cups of water

● 1/2 cup whey (Just scoop a container of plain whole yogurt into a

4. After a couple days you can open a bottle to check for taste and let the

the bottles to the fridge once they are ready.
