  • Fresh Fruit Kefir Ice Pops

     

    Posted by Kristi

    Summer is over. The kids are back in school. My how the time flies! Let’s send summer away with love and ice pops. Making probiotic ice pops is fun and easy. The kids can even help. They are sure to love these awesome cold treats. The flavor combinations you can make at home are almost endless, and yet so simple to create.

    Introduce fermented foods to your children with style

    fresh_fruit_kefir_ice_pops

    If you are looking for a way to introduce fermented foods to your kids, this is a great place to start. The flavor is amazing, and they are a quick snack, mom (and kids) can make in less than five minutes. There is no added sugar, only the sugar content from fresh fruit, and the water kefir. The kids don’t need a whole bunch of sugar anyway right?

    Making these ice pops starts with cutting up the desired fruit and placing it in the ice pop mold. The kind of fruit you can use is endless. The best ones to try are berries, pineapple, banana, kiwi, mango, and melons.

    Bananas are definitely a fan favorite. Berries are a sure second favorite. You can mix and match different fruits to find what your family’s favorite will be. We love strawberry banana water kefir ice pops. Pineapple is a great choice; the texture of frozen pineapple is just wonderful, and full of flavor. We also made kiwi, mango, pineapple, and watermelon. They were fantastic! The taste of the frozen water kefir is exploding with fruit flavor.

    Directions:

    • Fruits of your choice – the amount will depend on the size of your mold. Just fill up your mold ¾ of the way to the top.

    • Next, add water kefir to the fill line on your molds.

    • Place the tops onto the molds and pop them into the freezer. Freeze them for about four to five hours and serve!

    You could add half water kefir and half of your favorite juice. Orange juice, and grape juice are some of our favorites to add. It just gives it a little extra kick. You could try pineapple, apple, cranberry, or a mixture of juices. Try it out and see what is your favorite! My son said we should add yogurt. I think that is a great idea! We will have to give that a try next time.

    Before we send summer off let’s have one last run through the sprinkler, one last ice pop, maybe take a swim in the pool, see you next year summer, we sure will miss you!
