A healthy bacteria-rich alternative to alcohol

If you’re anything like us at ProVen, you’ll be looking for healthy bacteria-rich alternatives to alcoholic drinks to enjoy over the festive season?

Many people immediately think of kombucha – a fizzy, fermented tea – when considering healthy alternative non-alcoholic drinks, but have you heard of tepache?

Tepache is a delicious Mexican favourite that the whole family can drink. It is sweet, sour and effervescent and, as it is fermented, it is rich in friendly bacteria to help support the gut.

4 cups of water

2 whole cloves

Cinnamon or ginger powder

2 litre jar for fermenting

Method

  1. Cut the pineapple into chunks
  2. Mix the brown sugar and water together until the sugar dissolves
  3. Add the pineapple chunks, sugar water and cloves to a large glass jar
