Using only 2 ingredients, these Healthy Kefir Popsicles are easy to make and nutritious to eat. Perfect cool treat all year long.
Is it warm where you live? We are finally starting to get some sun, after days of rain. It has been the rainiest summer I can ever remember. The grass sure is green, and I have barely had to water my plants so far this season.
We wait all year for the hot, sunny, warm weather to happen. This year it is really taking it’s time. If we can get 2 days of sun in a row at this point we are lucky. As far as warm weather, we have only seen a couple of days you would consider hot.
Hubby and I try to get outside on the days it isn’t raining and go for walks. Working on getting those 10,000 steps a day. It is so much more enjoyable in the nice weather.
I am all about healthy treats (most of the time). You can indulge now and again, but for the most part, we try to keep those “special treats” under control. When you make homemade popsicles, you can control what goes into them. With a few simple ingredients, you can whip up tasty cold ice pops in no time. The hardest part is waiting for them to freeze. Wish I had a blast freezer like on MasterChef.
Kefir is something that can be found in my fridge all the time. Have you ever tried it? Packed with nutrition, comes in a variety of flavours, and I have recently noticed a kefir yogurt in the store too. I love to use the plain kefir as a buttermilk substitute in baking and pancakes. Vanilla (or any flavoured version) is great in smoothies or just pour and drink.
There is nothing better on a hot summer day than something cold to drink or eat. Having the grandkids over for backyard fun means gramma better have some awesome snacks ready and waiting.
These Healthy Kefir Popsicles are perfect for little hands. Chocolate chips mixed into vanilla kefir, poured into popsicles molds, freeze and eat. How easy is this? Nutritious snacks to fuel their bodies. Now they have more energy to run around and get me tired out.
Wonder if I have any Blackberry Lemon Tea Pops left in the freezer? Gramma needs to cool down too.
If you haven’t jumped on the homemade popsicle kick, it’s time you did. Get yourself some ice pop molds and start experimenting in the kitchen. You see how easy these Healthy Kefir Popsicles are to make? Have fun and come up with you own frozen treat combinations. Beat the heat with a cold healthy treat!!
What is your favourite cold treat to have on a hot summer day?
Healthy Kefir Popsicles Vanilla Chocolate Chip
- 1 1/3 cups vanilla kefir
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Pour kefir into popsicle molds.
Place in freezer (without adding the handles) for about 15 minutes so the liquid starts to firm up a bit.
Remove from freezer, and gently add chocolate chips to each mold. Press them down a bit with the tip of a spoon so you get some all the way to the bottom.
Place on the handles, and return to freezer to completely freeze.
Once frozen, remove from mold.
