I don’t know what it’s like by you, but here in Bend, OR, it is HOT. It feels like it’s been near 100° for at least two weeks and since we don’t have AC, all I’ve been living on is smoothies and salads…and sitting in front of a fan…or in a cramped kiddie pool with Willow! Two of my favorite things about summer though…BERRIES and kombucha!! A couple of years ago, I shared a recipe on Instagram for a kombucha smoothie bowl where I made kombucha ice cubes and blended it with various fruits and nut milk…it was super delicious! It wasn’t until this summer where I played around with kombucha popsicles.
The flavor possibilities are endless: fresh fruit + kombucha + coconut milk! And depending on your taste/sweetness preference, you can add a touch of maple syrup.
Below is our current favorite and if you love strawberries, you should definitely give this recipe a try! And if you don’t have popsicle molds, you can make ice cubes which are really great to blend into your smoothies or smoothie bowls!
We have a set of six popsicle molds, so when I make a batch of this recipe, I have extra to turn into ice cubes.
Ridiculously easy to whip up, super refreshing, and kid-approved! It’s the perfect summer treat!
STRAWBERRY KOMBUCHA POPS
Yields 8-10 popsicles depending on size of molds.
- 2 cups fresh, organic, chopped strawberries
- 1 cup Townshend’s Brew Dr. Strawberry Basil Kombucha
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk*
- Optional: 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Optional: 1/2-1 TBSP pure maple syrup
- In a high-speed blender, purée the strawberries until smooth.
- Next, add in remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Adjust sweetness level if desired.
- Pour into popsicle molds or ice cube trays and freeze overnight.
***We like to use Native Forest Organic Coconut Milk (Simple) as it doesn’t contain any guar gum. It’s just coconut + filtered water. This is a personal preference, but I do know the varieties that contain gums often times add an extra level of creaminess, but sadly gums just don’t agree much with my gut!
***Cant find this specific kombucha flavor??? No problem! GT’S makes a strawberry flavor kombucha or you can use any flavor/berry combination of your choice. Mango popsicles are really good too, but berry season is my favorite!
If you give this recipe a try, please come back and let me know your thoughts! I’d love to hear feedback ❤️
Thanks for stopping by!
