Pre-order Delicious Probiotic Drinks

I’m Olivia Newton John doing aerobics in a neon-colored leotard right now. Except my name’s not Olivia, I haven’t owned a leotard since 2005 1995, and I have never done aerobics…in public. What I’m trying to say, is I’m excited! Energized and PUMPED! I broke the piñata and there is bubble gum EVERYWHERE!

. . .

What is going on here?

I guess the title of this post already done said it.


I have been talking to you about my first cookbook for 8 months and am so thrilled to announce its latest and greatest milestone.  Delicious Probiotic Drinks is now available for pre-order!  The book will officially be released in February of 2014, but you can order it off Amazon right now!

How does pre-ordering work? Once the book is printed in February, it will be mailed to you, simple as that! If you’re one of those people (like me) who loves finding the 10 bucks you forgot about in your jacket pocket, or (more to the point)receiving packages you forgot were coming to you, pre-ordering is your jam! You can also walk your sweet hiney in Barnes and Noble when it’s released. But packages are way more fun. That is a fact.


I know, I know…fermenting your own probiotics at home? Who does that. . .besides me?  Actually, lots of people!  You likely know plenty of people who have pickled their own cucumbers or beets, whip up tasty batches of homemade yogurt, have sprouted their own grains, or have blended up delicious smoothie concoctions.

Fermentation is a pretty popular thing to do at home…maybe not as popular as watching The Voice, but popular nonetheless. I bet Adam Levine drinks kombucha right after his bikram yoga sessions. I think I saw that in a tweet somewhere. Probably on twitter.

Case in point: This book is great, AWESOME, peeeeerfect, bitchin’ for…

  • People who like to whip things up in the kitchen.
  • Folks who are already die-hard kombucha drinkers (making kombucha at home will save you TOOOOOOONS of MUUUULAAAAAAHHH…just sayin’).
  • Folks who are looking to enhance their digestive health.
  • People who enjoy a fizzy beverage without all the calories and sugar.
  • Families! Do you have kids who looove soft drinks or juice? Make delicious probiotic drinks for the whole family to enjoy! They are a much healthier alternative to sugar-filled drinks and are packed with health benefits
  • People who already prepare naturally fermented drinks at home. Whether you’re a newby or seasoned fermentor, this book has ideas, tips, and tricks that you can apply to your fermentation skill set.

Naturally fermented probiotic drinks promote healthy gut flora, which aids in digestion. They boost your energy level as well as your immune system, and are chock full of Vitamins and minerals. Probiotic drinks help stabilize the amount of stomach acid you have to ensure your system stays comfortable, regular, and healthful.  Included in the book is a detailed run-down on why each individual drink is healthful for you.


Detailed how-to instructions on how to brew kombucha, jun (related to kombucha), kefir, kefir soda, rejuvalac, ginger beer, lactofermented lemonade, cultured vegetable juice, yogurt, and smoothies. Once you get the base recipes down, adding ingredients enhances flavor as well as the health benefits of the drinks. This book includes 75 recipes for making your probiotic drinks absolutely fantastic. It also includes lots of information, history, tips, suggestions…there are smart things I done writ in that ther book.

Do I sound like a salesperson yet? I certainly hope so.

    Yay, Julia! I’m excited for you. I have no idea what any of this is, other than ginger beer (and that’s because Stephie taught me about that) and smoothies. However, I’m willing to learn! Although, I will admit that I have a picture of the lab in science class with test tubes and bubbly things coming out of said test tubes in my mind. I’m not going to explode my house, am I? Because then I’ll have to come live with you, being homeless and all. And probably single, because Jerry would not find that funny. He’s a party pooper at times. Anyway, gonna get me this book and your kale book! 🙂

      LOL, fortunately there are no test tubes or bunsen burners required for making the recipes in my book, or else I would have been a lot more intimidated too! I promise, everything in the book is easy, but starting out the drinks do require some patience (which was my biggest challenge). They are so worth the effort, though I totally get fermentation is not necessarily a thing most people just pick up and do. 🙂 Thanks so much for your support, Julie…you’re a peach! 🙂

      1. Julie

        Honey, I have so many things fermenting in my refrigerator, and that doesn’t include the sourdough starter. I’m looking forward to having things ferment that are SUPPOSED to be there!

  2. Kelli @ The Corner Kitchen

    Yaaayyyyyy!! I’m so excited for you, friend!! Look at those photos….they’re beautiful (as always 🙂 ) I’m know nothing about any of this, so I’m super excited to get my hands on your book, get clued in and make some ginger beer.

  3. Abby

    Yessssss!!! And now I can’t stop saying Lactofermented in the voice of Ron Burgundy. But seriously, very very excited for you!!!! You know I’m gettin a copy, plus then I’ll nag you that I want a signed copy so we have to meet up 🙂

  4. Kari@Loaves n Dishes

    Julia, this is sooo exciting for you…and for me, as I get older my digestive tract does weird things, I’m totally ordering your book so that I can get my gut good! (please don’t mind my grammar, I’m just so excited)

  5. Stephie @ Eat Your Heart Out

    Yippeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so exciteeeeeeeeeed! Look at your name up thar in that print!

    Interestingly enough, Alex has recently discovered kombucha and really likes it. He tries a new flavor just about every time we go to the grocery. I am still a little unsure, but I guzzle ginger beer like it’s goin’ out of style, so this could be just the thing for us to experiment with! And be us, I mean me, because sometimes he thinks my experimenting is weird.

  6. Jennie @themessybakerblog

    I am so stinkin’ excited for you. The book cover is gorgeous and I bet every single recipe is fabulous. I happen to adore ginger beer. You know I’m going to have to add this to my collection. I love making healthy beverages and smoothies. Congrats!

  7. Faith (An Edible Mosaic)

    This book looks seriously amazing. I’ve been dabbling a little bit in lacto-fermentation and I would love to learn more about making probiotic-rich foods at home!!! Awesome job, gorgeous…you must be so proud of yourself!!

  8. Joy

    I have never done anything remotely like this. Do I need special equipment? The photos are fantastic and intriguing. I’m willing to try after just having my first taste of kefir this morning,

    1. Julia Post author

      Hi Joy, it depends on which drink you are trying to make, but for the most part, the only thing you need for fermenting probiotic beverages are large jars. For kefir, all you need is milk, kefir starter, and a 1-quart (or larger) mason jar. 🙂 Have fun and good luck!!
