DIRECTIONS

  • 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).
  • Add sweetener if desired, the extract of choice, and a pinch of sea salt; pulse until blended.
  • Pour mixture into eight 3-ounce pop molds and freeze completely, approximately 3 hours.
