Blackberries are great to reduce intestinal inflammation… and, they will make your skin luminescent!
I love ice pops. I love kombucha. Oh, and fresh berries… well, they are divine! So, these blackberry kombucha ice pops have become my new favorite dessert.
If you are one of those people who craves sweets after dinner (or after lunch, or after anything…) then you are the perfect candidate for these ice pops. I mean, think about it. If these were in your freezer now, you could just grab one anytime you want one. With no guilt. Yup, absolutely none.
These ice pops are made with no added sweeteners. But they are sweet. And tangy. And have a bit of a pop from the fizziness of the kombucha.
I made 6 of them several days ago and I have been slapping my own hand away so that I don’t eat them all before someone else has a chance to try them.
If you have never tried kombucha, you really must. Kombucha is made from fermented tea and it is great for your digestion and your general health. There are so many flavors available, pick whatever makes your tastebuds sing. Oh, and feel free to change up the type of berry. I think I’m using raspberries next time… yum!

These blackberry kombucha ice pops are so healing:
All berries are good for you and contain antioxidants. As a general rule, the darker the color, the more antioxidants, making blackberries even better than other berries at fighting cancer and other illnesses. Blackberries also can help relieve intestinal inflammation and diarrhea, and they are good for your skin. And, even more importantly, they taste great…
Kombucha is a fermented sweetened black tea that contains tons of beneficial probiotics. It’s great for your digestion, increases your energy, and can help detoxify your body.
Pomegranate seeds nourish the blood. In Chinese medicine, we know that many illnesses and conditions are caused by the body making poor quality blood. Pomegranate seeds are great at helping the body make good quality blood. They are also good to combat diarrhea, anemia and incontinence.
