The seasons are changing right before our berry eyes! Happy spring! The days are longer and the temperature is climbing. To celebrate the change in seasons, I teamed up with Lifeway Kefir to create the perfect, bright and cheery treat. The raspberry frozen kefir cups are made with lowfat raspberry kefir milk along with raspberry jam and smooth white chocolate. Seriously refreshing and seriously good for your gut!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggled with gut issues. Probiotic drinks that are low in lactose, such as kefir, have become an important staple in my day to day. Probiotics really help soothe my gut. When my gut is happy, my entire body is happy!
If kefir is somewhat new to you, kefir is a tangy and tart cultured milk smoothie high in protein, calcium, and vitamin D. Kefir is amazing in morning smoothies or incorporated into savory or sweet recipes (it is a great replacement for milk or buttermilk in baking.) The probiotics in kefir can improve healthy digestion and support immunity. As an added bonus, a serving of kefir fulfills up to 30% of daily calcium needs. The frozen kefir cups keep all of the probiotic benefit that can sometimes be lost in baked goods.
I am so excited to partner with Lifeway – my favorite manufacturer of kefir – to bring you this amazing recipe. Lifeway is the largest manufacturer of kefir in the United States and has been growing strong since 1980s. The brand offers delicious, drinkable kefir as well as farmer’s cheese and a line of products specifically for kids. Each cup of Lifeway’s all natural kefir has 12 live and active cultures and is 99% lactose free. Lifeway’s kefir is safe for all ages, and all flavors taste amazing!

Making Raspberry Frozen Kefir Cups
- Standard muffin tin lined with parchment liners or silicone muffin cups
- Microwave safe bowl
- Heatproof spoons
- Rubber spatula
- Measuring spoons
Yield: 12 frozen cups
- 18-20 oz. Lifeway Raspberry Kefir Milk
- 6 oz white chocolate chips (melted)
- 4 oz raspberry jam
- 6 oz fresh raspberries
- Optional: sprinkling of rolled oats or granola
Line a standard muffin tin with paper or silicone liners. If desired, sprinkle a thin layer of oats or granola as a base to create a “crust”. Add white chocolate chips to a microwave safe bowl and melt in 30 second increments. Next, evenly divide melted white chocolate into each cup and flatten down as much as you can. Pop in freezer for 5 minutes to set. Do the same with the raspberry jam.
Once set, place 1-2 fresh berries on top of the jam in each cup. Pour kefir into each cup until almost to the top of the liner. Top with raspberry and place freezer for at least an hour to fully set before serving. Enjoy!
