Are you looking for a way to get more healthy dairy and probiotics in your diet? Try these healthy fruit and kefir popsicles that even kids love! This is a perfect summer breakfast treat.
It is already ridiculously hot here. Every single summer I forget how hot it gets here in Southwest Florida. I can’t even begin to describe the heat to you. You really have to experience it to believe it. One way we are beating the heat is to eat a lot of popsicles. Since I don’t want to feed the kids too much sugar, I’ve been making popsicles out of kefir and fruit and then serving them for breakfast or after nap snacks. I’ve included the recipe at the end of this post.
I’ve been using kefir because it’s easy to use, stays frozen longer than juice, and is full of probiotics. When I throw in fruit, it makes it an even healthier option for my kiddos (and me!).
The only problem with popsicles in this heat is that they melt fast. Crazy fast. I have the hardest time explaining to the kids that popsicles melting is just a fact of life. It’s a tough lesson for them to learn.[bctt tweet=”Tough toddler lesson: popsicles melt” username=”eatdrinkandsave”]
I throw the kids on a towel out in our lanai when it is popsicle time. Robert is old enough to stay on the towel, but Jackson is having too much fun walking to stay still with his popsicles. He’s all over the place!
These popsicles are so easy to make and I’m thrilled that the kids love them!
BTW- Don’t you love these molds? Find more on Amazon here. I bought mine on sale so now making popsicles is way cheaper than buying them!
Here’s the popsicle recipe:
- 2 C. of kefir
- 1/2 C. of frozen wild blueberries
- 6 strawberries, sliced.
- Put the strawberries in the bottom of your popsicle molds
- cover with kefir until 2/3 full. Top with wild blueberries and fill to the top with the rest of the kefir.
