Lemon Coconut Kefir Ice Cream/Popsicles

Posted on

Quick, clean, fast and easy. This is an extremely versatile recipe. The Coconut Kefir is a vegan version of a tart, creamy drink that is fermented. This process of fermentation creates high amounts of probiotics, supporting digestive and immune health. Making your own Kefir is always the best option but there are products available at the store. I sweetened with maple syrup. It’s 4 ingredients that you blend and spin. That’s it! It makes a great soft serve after chilling for an hour. It will get hard though in the freezer so I made some into popsicles which was fun. Play with the flavors by infusing herbs (rosemary, basil for example) or add spices like ginger, anise, almond, hazelnut. Some serving suggestions are berries, purees, over a crisps or cobblers.

Lemon Coconut Kefir Ice Cream/Popsicles:

1 lemon, zest of chopped finely and juice of

1 2/3 c Coconut Kefir

1/3- 1/2 c maple syrup (depends on how sweet you want it)

1/8 tsp real salt

1 tsp vanilla (almond, hazelnut, mint)

2 tsp Amaretto (I used this one and loved it), Limoncello, Maker’s Mark, Frangelico…whatever flavor you like, double check if gluten free. They would all be great!
