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.
Ingredients (to makes 10 – 12 popsicles depending upon size)
- 3c. kefir or purchase grains from my affiliate - where to buy kefir grains
- 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!
