makes about 4 popsicles
- 1 Hibiscus organic tea bags
- 2 cups of water
- 3/4 of a fresh lime
- 6 mint leaves
- 1 tbsp honey (or coconut sugar, maple syrup, 100% stevia as fresh leaf or drops)
Make the hibiscus tea as you would any herbal tea. Place the bag in a cup and pour over 2 cups of boiled water. Cover and leave to infuse for 5-10 mins depending on your preference of strength of flavor. Take out the tea bag. Add the honey and allow the tea to cool Place tea in a blender along with lime juice, mint leaves and honey. Once blended you can either pour as it is into the popsicle molds of you can sieve and then pour. Optional is to add a mint leaf into the bottom of the mold before you pour in the mixture. Freeze for 6 hours minimum.
NB Stainless steel popsicle molds are an excellent long-lasting solution and preferable to plastic molds.
