Kava Recipes

kava recipes

Kava recipes per se are relatively new. You see, kava has been a part of the Pacific Island Pacific Islands for thousands of years. However, the original kava drink was simply water mixed with freshly crushed or chewed kavalactones from the root of the piper methysticum plant.

We are aware that many people have trouble enjoying kava in its most original form. Therefore, now there are many other options for creating tasty concoctions that mask the flavour, using the best kava for the purpose. As such, here are our favourite kava drink recipes for every occasion and every taste preference!

Kava Choc Shake!

Australia Kava Shop CEO Cameron McLeod has a long history in value-added kava products. In particular, this includes RTD (Ready-to-Drink) formulas. He said that the most successful cross-over came when kava was blended with dairy products. Apparently, this has a lot to do with the way the kavalactones bind with the dairy fats and are made easier to process by your body. This in turn, causes a quicker uptake of the feel-good sensation that the kavian lactone brings.

We worked on a few variations based on Cameron’s recommendations and found the below recipe to be fantastic. Please note – This is not the low fat version! 😁

Kava Cola

The bitter kava taste actually blends in very well with cola. The distinctive “bite” that Cola has on your taste buds mitigates the bitter kava taste.  We worked on the below recipe over the past month and have refined it so that you can have Kava Cola ready to take with you on your next social event.
