I shared earlier how easy homemade kefir is to make. Now, I have found another way to incorporate kefir’s wonderful probiotic benefits into our family’s diet – kefir popsicles. I have primarily used kefir as a breakfast drink with fruit and sweetened with honey so ti is a smoothie.
But, now that the weather is hot, I started making kefir popsicles.
I actually use the same ingredients as if I am making a kefir smoothie but change the quantities. Three basic ingredients and imagination open a world of new treats!
Using kefir, frozen fruit and honey, I blend until smooth, pour into popsicle molds and freeze. How easy is that!
Plastic and stainless steel molds are available online. The first popsicle molds I purchased were from a local store on sale at the end of the season. They worked but the popsicles came out tasting and smelling like plastic – it was awful! So, I threw them away and ordered (from my affiliate) these popsicle molds and love them! Not only do the popsicles look nice but the children love having the wooden sticks – it the little things!
One thing I have found when making kefir popsicles – when I snitch a taste of the mix, it seems very sweet but when it becomes a kefir popsicle, it is just right. So, remember, when adding the honey, once they are frozen, the pops will not taste quite as sweet as they did beforehand.
yield 10 - 12 popsicles
- 3c. kefir
- 1c. frozen fruit (strawberries, peaches, blueberries, bananas ...)
- 1/2 - 3/4 c. honey (adjust to taste - we like them tangy!)
- Blend all ingredients in blender -I blend just until smooth.
- Pour into popsicle molds and place in the freezer.
- Freezing time varies but mine are frozen in about 8 hours.
- Serve and Enjoy!
