RISE Kombucha 10 Day Challenge + Giveaway!



RISE provided me with the products for this review/giveaway, though all opinions are 100% my own.

I first heard of kombucha from my good friend Shalan who makes her own brew.  Her kombucha is absolutely delicious, and she's always happy to share her recent batch or even a scoby or two so I can try making it at home.  I'm the kind of person who forgets things easily, and needless to say my homemade kombucha was an unfortunate victim.  Kombucha is a living culture, and you have to feed it sugar to maintain it a little bit.  Coupled with the fact that you actually have to put it in a dark corner somewhere while it ferments, I am prone to completely forgetting about it until it's too late.  This is why RISE first appealed to me, because it's already brewed and bottled and 100% safe for me to drink without having to worry if I fed the darn thing.

Death by Chocolate


My town has this wonderful event each year called "Death by Chocolate".  The idea is, for the price of a ticket you get all the chocolate goodies you can possibly eat. All proceeds go towards the Break-a-Leg Theatre (our community theatre) which is working on re-building our ACT Centre (Arts, Cinema, Theatre and Film).  Not only do you get to eat a ton of delicious goodies, you also get to support a great cause by doing so!

This year the event was held on February 15th (last weekend).  I donated these chocolate avocado mousse cups using my recipe for chocolate avocado pudding.  The were a huge hit, and everyone had a hard time believing they were made with avocados let alone that they were dairy, gluten, and nut free!
