    Cookgirl's Note:

    From Delicious Living magazine. Recipe requires at least 3 hours of freezing. The kefir I used (Nancy's brand) was peach flavored and sweetened. There are also goat's milk-based and coconut milk-based kefirs on the market. Variation: you can also make a smoothie by adding all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth. This morning I made a smoothie and added one tablespoon of pomegranate molasses. If the smoothie is too thick, and a little bit of ice cold water.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups fresh pitted cherries (fresh or frozen I tested the recipe using Rainier cherries from WA state)
    • 2 cups plain unsweteened kefir (plain or flavored kefir(your choice)
    • 2 tablespoons Agave (I skipped the sugar because my kefir was sweetened) or 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup, to taste (I skipped the sugar because my kefir was sweetened)
    • 1 1/2-2 teaspoons almond extract (I tested using almond extract) or 1 1/2-2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I tested using almond extract)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place cherries and kefir into a food processor and process until cherries break down and kefir turns pink. (I processed the cherries until as smooth as possible).
    2. 2
      Add sweetener if desired, the extract of choice, and a pinch of sea salt; pulse until blended.
    3. 3
      Pour mixture into eight 3-ounce pop molds and freeze completely, approximately 3 hours.
