Kratom possesses an earthy, sometimes bitter taste. Because of this, many kratom users prefer to craft kratom drink combinations. Such a drink mix will balance the native flavors of powdered kratom, allowing you to enjoy your daily dose of this herbal plant extract without any holdups. And turning kratom powder into liquid kratom couldn’t be easier!
The idea is simple: mixing kratom powder into a drink – sometimes one that maintains its benefits to your overall well-being – masks the natural taste of kratom. This mixture creates a more enjoyable experience for both you and your tastebuds.
At Kratom Spot, we’re experts on all things kratom! As experts, we’ve experimented with many forms of liquid kratom, knowing what tastes best. Through our trials, we’ve determined seven of the best kratom drink combinations to find the drink mix that works for you. Let’s get started!
1. Kratom & Orange Juice
Who doesn’t love orange juice? This tried-and-true drink combination is simple. All you’ll need is a cold glass of OJ and your favorite strain of powdered kratom. Mix the two using a whisk and savor the perfect kratom dose, any time of day.
If you’re looking for a more luxurious kratom-juice drink mix, you can even squeeze the oranges yourself. For one glass, you’ll need about four medium-sized oranges, the fresher, the better!
Orange juice possesses a slightly acidic taste. The citrus flavor works well to overpower the bitter undertones of kratom extracts without completely removing the earthy overtones, creating a unique blend of natural flavor. Plus, orange juice is a good source of vitamins and minerals, especially Vitamin C, meaning you’ll receive an extra dose of well-being with your daily kratom intake.
2. Kratom & Grapefruit Juice
Orange juice retains some of the native kratom flavors, but what if you’re looking to mask the taste of kratom almost entirely? Here, we suggest something with a little more acidity: grapefruit juice.
This liquid kratom beverage is great for new users who aren’t yet used to the taste of kratom because the bittersweet flavors of grapefruit replace the sour taste of natural kratom. Additionally, grapefruit juice is considered an antioxidant superfood. Receive your daily dose of kratom powder with a variety of essential nutrients– two birds, one stone.
3. Kratom & Mango Juice
While orange juice and grapefruit juice make for fantastic kratom drink combinations, sometimes flavor isn’t everything. When formulating the perfect daily kratom drink, the texture is also important.
That’s where mango juice takes the stage.
Jacobi Gonzales is a daily kratom user and supporter of Kratom Spot: “I’ve taken kratom every day for about three years. It’s helped ease my stomach pains and daily anxiety.” Gonzales continued, “The perfect kratom drink mix should have a smooth consistency as some liquids don’t fully eliminate that chalky texture of powdered kratom.”
Unless mixed well, pulpier juices like orange juice and grapefruit juice cannot fully blend the kratom into your beverage. That’s one of the reasons Gonzales uses mango juice to consume his kratom: “It blends smooth, and mango tastes a lot better than raw kratom powder.”
4. Kratom & Lemonade
Summer is approaching quickly, and there’s nothing better than an ice cold glass of lemonade on a sunny day. If you’re seeking that perfect afternoon kratom drink, lemonade provides enough acidity to mask the taste of kratom powder.
We recommend adding a spoonful of raw sugar to your kratom lemonade, as raw, unrefined sugar can overtake the bitter aftertaste of kratom while enhancing your summer beverage. If you want to squeeze the lemonade yourself, all you’ll need is about six fresh lemons. This liquid kratom combination certainly won’t break the bank!
5. Kratom & Mint Tea
We’ve explored a handful of cold drink combinations, but what if you take your kratom HOT? Kratom teas are a fan-favorite concoction, especially if you’re already an avid tea drinker. To make kratom tea, we recommend mixing your preferred dose of kratom powder into a mint-flavored tea, such as spearmint or peppermint.
In our trials, mint has shown to perfectly blend with the earthy overtones of powdered kratom, creating a blissful drink mix that you’ll want to drink again and again.
But remember: kratom should not be mixed with boiling water. If your tea water is too hot, it can denature the alkaloids found in natural kratom extracts, such as those found at Kratom Spot. When an herbal extract like kratom is “denatured,” it loses its characteristic qualities, becoming ineffective. You may also run the risk of burning the ingredients of your tea bag, creating a sour tea instead of a minty refreshment.
After boiling your water, let it sit for about five to ten minutes before adding your tea and your kratom powder. This should bring the water temperature to a perfect brewing degree.
6. Kratom & Chamomile Tea
When talking about tea, it’s impossible not to mention everyone’s favorite nighttime variety: chamomile tea. If you’re a nightly kratom drinker, this may be the perfect drink combination for you!
Chamomile tea is a natural immunity-booster. When blended to create a liquid kratom beverage, it may be just what you need after a long day’s work. Plus, the herbal essences of chamomile present an eloquent flavor that mixes well with the earthy taste of kratom.
7. Kratom & Coffee
Perhaps you prefer coffee over tea, but don’t worry, there’s good news: kratom mixes well with coffee, too!
According to Gonzales, “I honestly prefer mixing kratom powder with hot drinks like coffee. You can just sip them and enjoy, and the powdery texture is all but eliminated when you mix it in something hot.” He also says that adding a squeeze of lemon to your coffee makes for a very enjoyable liquid kratom dose.
Similar to kratom tea, make sure your water is hot, not boiling, when making your morning kratom coffee. The perfect water temperature when brewing coffee is between 195 and 205 degrees Fahrenheit. When brewing in this temperature range, you will not denature any of the alkaloids in your kratom powder, making sure you get all of the alkaloids naturally found in the kratom plant.
