Mango & Blueberry Kefir Ice Lollies

When it’s hot, it’s always really handy to have some ice-lollies in the freezer. These delicious mango and blueberry ice lollies are boosted with gut-friendly fibre and probiotic strains and contain zero refined sugar.

These gorgeous ice-lollies are great for kids’ immune system and tummies – the mango is bursting with vitamin A and C and the blueberries contain antibacterial and antiviral properties. The flax will help to keep them regular and the kefir will boost up their gut microbiome.

Lactobacillus in the kefir is an important building block for creating acetylcholine for learning and a good memory, as well as the brain neurotransmitter GABA to help keep your kids chilled-out and worry free!

Suitable from 6 months of age upwards, you can make mini versions of these ice-lollies for teething babies too.
