Hey bunnies! Today we are going to make Rejuvelac. I started drinking kombucha a couple years ago when I heard of the amazing benefits it can have on the body and the gut. And the more I became interested in kombucha and researching it I started to see rejuvelac come up often. The reason being is because they are both loaded with probiotics. In my experience, it’s also easier to make Rejuvelac instead of kombucha. And Rejuvelac is ready much sooner. So it’s worth giving a try.
Rejuvelac is rich in lactobacillus acidophilus which is also found in things like miso and sauerkraut. These probiotics provide living bacteria that help the body absorb nutrients. They also help keep a balance of good bacteria in the body keeping your intestine healthy. Rejuvelac is also rich in the vitamins E, K, C, B-1, B-3 and the minerals magnesium, potassium and manganese, as well as amino acids. Try mixing so into you favorite shakes until you get used to the taste and smell. Everything you need is listed below. Enjoy!
1/2 cup wheat berries
distilled water as needed
Place wheat berries in an Easy Green Sprouter and sprout until tails are 1/4 in. long. An alternate method is to soak your wheat berries overnight in a jar of water. The next day, strain them and place them in a flat tray/pan and line with moist paper towels. Rinse them 3 times per day until 1/4 in. tips have sprouted. This should take 1-2 days.
Place the sprouts in a large wide mouth jar filled with 4 cups distilled water.
Let stand for 12 hours in a warm spot. I leave mine on the kitchen counter. It will begin to smell fermented.
Strain off the liquid and you have Rejuvelac!
You can repeat this method with the same sprouts up to 3 times!
Enjoy alone or add to your favorite recipes and smoothies until you get used to its unique smell and flavor.
