Lemon-Blueberry Kefir Ice Cream


Kefir, with its unmistakable tang and zip, lends itself well to a lemon-flavored ice cream. This lemon-blueberry ice cream pairs three of the most complementary flavors in the food world into one creamy, rich dessert.


  • 2 cups kefir (use 1 cup liquid kefir + 1 cup kefir cheese for extra creaminess)
  • 1 cup cream
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup


  1. Can use kefir made with cow milk, goat milk, or coconut milk.
  2. Combine kefir, cream, lemon zest, and honey or maple syrup in a large bowl. Whisk well until thoroughly combined.
  3. Chill for 1 to 2 hours, or according to your ice cream maker’s directions.
  4. Once the mixture is fully chilled, pour it into your ice cream maker and churn. Add blueberries to churning ice cream towards the end of the churning process to ensure that they do not sink or turn the ice cream blue.
  5. Freeze according to ice cream maker’s instructions.
