For the ultimate summer refresher, this icy dessert is creamy, fruity, and fluffy. Some (limited) research suggests that freezing probiotics for a short time may not actually kill them but rather render them dormant until eaten. You can use any flavor of kombucha you like to complement the lemony berry mixture.


  • 1 (16-oz.) bottle unflavored kombucha
  • 1 pound mixed raspberries and blackberries
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cups plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons torn fresh basil or mint leaves (optional)

How to Make It

Step 1

Pour kombucha into a 13- x 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish; freeze 1 hour. Scrape with a fork and stir; return to freezer for 30 minutes. Once fully frozen, scrape and fluff with a fork.

Toss berries, sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a large bowl to combine. Let stand at room temperature 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Place 1/2 cup yogurt in each of 6 chilled parfait glasses. Top each serving with 1/2 cup berry mixture and 2/3 cup granita. Top with fresh basil or mint leaves, if desired. Serve immediately.
