My mom has always had issues with her digestive health. After numerous doctor appointments, she became tired of being continually told to take probiotic pills. She already takes a lot of pills, and had no interest in taking any more. I began to wonder if there was a more enjoyable way to consume probiotics. Knowing that kombucha is packed with probiotics, I encouraged my mom to try it. However, she was uncomfortable with the idea of drinking fermented tea.
Earlier that summer, I had stumbled upon a popsicle recipe after playing around in my kitchen. Coincidentally, popsicles are one of the only foods that don't upset my mom's stomach, and she loves them. Could popsicles be the medium through which kombucha is consumed? I decided to put this idea into fruition, and The Better Pop was born.
