Probiotic Kefir Ice Cream! no machine needed

Kefir Ice Cream

This is a delicious Kefir Ice Cream Recipe that is definitely worth sharing.


The first time I made Kefir Ice Cream I made it in a shallow bowl but this time, for the life of me, decided to make it in a deeper dish and it is definitely not advisable because it takes longer, MUCH longer, so in this case shallow is better and easier.

I like experimenting and I’ve had a couple of my recipes that turned out too sour, too this or too that, yup, the dreadful you-are-the-only-one-in-the-house-end-up-eating-it recipes! BUT it’s not all in vain because it brought me closer to this wonderful recipe that actually got a great rating from my Finicky Food Critics (FFC approved!), subconscious head nod and all 🙂 .. Makes me so happy!
