To say that we have been into popsicles this summer would be a serious understatement! During our family’s recent beach vacation we made batches of both my chocolate fudgesicles and my mint chocolate chip popsicles nearly every single day. (And yes, I do travel with our popsicles molds!) It makes me so happy that even my relatives who don’t have food allergies truly enjoy these healthful desserts.

Returning back to Boulder’s 90 degree dry climate got me thinking about what kind of light, refreshing, and cooling treat I could create next. Iced tea immediately popped into my mind but since I am in the middle of a serious popsicle obsession my next thought was, “could I freeze the tea into popsicles?” It was worth a try!

Our 6-year old requested chamomile tea, which is her favorite. I whipped up these popsicles in just a few minutes ….and they were gobbled up by all four of us!

Now this is where you can get creative. Green tea with mango? Hibiscus tea with blueberries? Rooibos tea with peaches? White Peony tea with grapes?

What simple but delicious combination of brewed tea and fruit sounds good to you?


Strawberry & Chamomile Tea Popsicles
by Debbie Steinbock

Ingredients:
24 oz. of strong brewed chamomile tea (use approximately 4 chamomile tea bags or 4 Tbsp. loose tea leaves)
1 Tbsp. raw honey (best honey ever!)
10-12 strawberries, sliced
popsicle molds

Method:

  1. Dissolve the honey in the strong brewed chamomile tea while it’s still hot; stir it well so that the honey doesn’t settle to the bottom. Set it aside to cool until it’s about body-temperature (it will feel neutral to the touch).
  2. Add sliced strawberries to each popsicle mold, filling each one approximately 1/3 of the way.
  3. Pour the chamomile tea into each mold so that the strawberries “float” around.
  4. Place in freezer until set.
  5. To remove you may need to run warm water on the mold for a few seconds. Enjoy!
