    In bottoms of 6 large glasses, place 1/3 cup (80 mL) scoop of ice cream. Pour fruity kombucha overtop, evenly divvying fruit among glasses. Top with a sprig of fresh herb and serve immediately with tall spoons.

    TIP: Substitute mango-flavoured kombucha for plain and mix with fresh mango slices and coconut ice cream. Garnish with a smattering of fresh blueberries.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
