Kefir Popsicles


My son Morgan loves popsicles! At the beginning of preschool he got hit hard with the croup cough that was going around so we spent four days managing the fever that came with it. Giving him popsicles was a great way to help keep him hydrated and cool. I started thinking about how I could make healthy popsicles at home and then I came up with the idea throwing Lifeway Kefir and fruit in a blender. Voila! A tasty frozen treat packed with probiotics and vitamins that is 99% lactose free as well as gluten-free. They taste just like frozen Chobani Champions Yogurt Tubes! If you want them a little sweeter add a little honey to the mix.

Probiotics are thought to have several health benefits including: preventing or reducing the severity of colds and flu, treating eczema in children, treating irritable bowel syndrome and several other digestive and infectious problems you can learn about here.  


Looking for popsicle molds? I love my Tovolo Star Ice Pop Mold that comes with a sturdy base and fits well in our narrow freezer.
