I have to admit that I was intimidated to make beet kvass because I thought it was going to be super involved. Then one day I had some beets leftover from a smoothie I was making and I decided to just finally give kvass a try. Wow, it is so easy! This has now become as routine for us as kombucha brewing!

It also happens to have the following health-giving benefits: 

  • Aids digestion
  • Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant
  • Promotes regularity
  • Alkalizes the body
  • Cleans the liver and helps it perform its detoxification processes
  • Hangover antidote
  • Helps with anemia (due to its iron content)
  • Helps your vision (due to its Lutein and Zeaxanthin content)
  • Has been shown to help prevent tumor growth

Beet Kvass

This beet kvass recipe is so easy to make and has so many health benefits.


  • 1 large beet, cut into 1" pieces
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and quartered (you can use more if you like, I love lots of garlic!)
  • 1 Tbsp Himalayan sea salt
  • Filtered water
  • 2-3 whey cubes (optional, you can just use salt)
  • 1 large glass 1/2 gallon container


1. Add beets, garlic, salt and whey to jar.

2. You can use different kinds of jars, as long as they are glass. I use either of these, but typically the mason jar.

3. Fill with water to the top of the jar, leaving 1" headroom.

4. Stir with a large spoon.

5. Cover with a breathable cotton cloth, so critters can't get in.

6. Let sit in a temperate area for 1-2 days, depending on how warm our house is....if you live in a hot climate it will be ready sooner.

7. That's it! (I bet you thought it was waaaay more complicated, I did!).

8. When it's ready you can ladle it into individual glass containers for grab-and-go kvass, or store in pretty wine bottles as pictured at the top!
