Instant semi-frozen Kombucha or Water Kefir Slurpee, Water Ice
OK, it does take a few minutes - like 5 minutes.
Here's all that you need
1. Kombucha Tea, Ginger Beer, Jun, Water Kefir, or your favorite water flavored drink.
2. 2 large plastic Zip Lock bags
works best with one zip lock larger than the other. But the bags can be of the same size just know that one bag has to fit inside the other bag, leaving room for both bags to be filled.
Fill one zip lock bag (smaller one) with your favorite Probiotic Soda. Seal and burp the bag to be sure it is sealed completed and most of the air is out. Shake the bag.
Place the Probiotic Soda filled Zip Lock inside the larger Zip Lock.
Fill the outer Zip Lock with ice, leaving enough room to seal the bag.
Pour Salt over the ice. Seal the Zip Lock filled ice. Make sure all Zip Locks are completely sealed.
Put on the music ...
and Shake the bag for 3-5 minutes.
You can watch your Probiotic Slushee form.
Be careful of Brain Freeze. (don't drink it all down too fast)

Here is another method popular at Farmers markets and events.
This uses Kombucha Tea that is nearly frozen (in a plastic water bottle).Takes about 1 1/2 hour in my freezer. If is is completely frozen leave out until it is still super cold but not solid ice - you want the super chilled kombucha tea with no visible ice chunks. Show your friends the bottle of liquid Kombucha Tea.
Very slowly loosen the cap. If too fast then the Kombucha Tea will freeze in the bottle. And pour the Kombucha Tea into the serving container (the colder the container the better)
If the Kombucha Tea does not ice up right away then briskly stir. As the air hits the liquid causing the ice to form. Quite the show.
IMO, using a heavy fully flavored Kombucha Tea works best.
If you're using fresh fruits, herbs, spices etc recommend make these into a a light syrup first and use in your first or second ferment. Then bottle., in this case, using plastic water bottles. You can also use zip lock bags instead of plastic water bottles. I Cut a 1-2 inch corner off of the zip lock right before serving instead of trying to open the zip lock and having it open too much when pouring.
