We love smoothie pops in our house, but sometimes the process of blending fruit and yogurt is a pain and it requires you to have quite a few items on hand.  In a moment of bare cupboards (or freezer to be more exact) and laziness I discovered this wonderfully easy recipe, if you can call it that!  

The key is kefir, a healthy probiotic drink.  If you’ve never had kefir before it’s basically drinkable yogurt,  it tastes quite good, plus it’s full of beneficial bacteria, protein and calcium.  

Now if your child can pour things unassisted you really don’t need to help them at all! Toddlers will need a little help, but they will love creating their own popsicles and gaining valuable motor skill practice.
