How to make kefir ice cream

Probiotic + prebiotic kefir ice-cream. Tasty, low in lactose, high in calcium.

I wanted to make my daughter something like ice-cream but without the risk of soy emulsifiers / vegetable oil, with a lower lactose content, and with probiotics to hopefully help her enjoy a frozen treat without unwanted side effects. Kefir to the rescue!

She thought that it was so yummy that she ate the whole bowl and asked for more! Unlike traditional ice cream this is something that you can offer to your kids every day. I used banana and store bought kefir but a cheaper option is to experiment with making your own kefir (it can be used to with coconut milk or soy milk to make dairy free alternatives).


  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 150g kefir
    • I used The Collective Blueberry Hemp Kefir. The hulled hemp seeds + chicory root help to add some prebiotic fibre to go with the probiotic kefir. Tip: Another option is to mix in 1Tbsp of ground linseed.

Allergies: soy free, gluten free, egg free, nut free.


  1. Slice up the banana and freeze the slices.
  2. Blend the frozen banana and kefir until smooth.
  3. Serve and eat immediately. The consistency is like soft-serve ice-cream.
