Rummaging through my cupboards last week I found seven boxes of fruit or herbal teas. Seven! I’ve clearly got a bit of a tea hoarding problem, made even worse by the fact that I don’t drink it during the summer.
So rather than let all those tea bags sit idle in the cupboard until winter I decided to make some Fruity Iced Tea Popsicles!
The popsicles are ridiculously easy to make. You just need to make the tea in a cup as normal, let it brew for a few minutes before pouring it into popsicles moulds and letting it freeze.
You can use pretty much any fruit or herbal tea you have at home. I used Strawberry & Mango, Orange Crush, Lemon and Peppermint. Just be cautious about some herbal teas such as green tea if you are planning on making these popsicles for kids as it contains some caffeine.
For children you may also need to sweeten the tea slightly with a little bit of honey to make it nice and tasty for them!
- Fruit Tea Bags of your choice. I used:
- - Mango & Strawverry
- - Orange Crush
- - Peppermint
- - Lemon
- optional: honey to sweeten.
- Put each tea bag in a separate cup, fill with boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 minutes. For slightly sweetened tea add some honey to each cup and stir well.
- Remove the tea bag and pour the tea into popsicle moulds. Insert a stick and freeze for at least 5 hours.
