3 INTRIGING SUMMER HERB POPSICLES


What could be better than a cool, delectable, and healthful treat waiting for you in the freezer when the weather is hot? Although herbal iced teas are fantastic, have you ever tried making your own herbal popsicles by infusing herbs with fruit or coconut cream?


These are very simple to make and there are countless choices if you have a popsicle mold at home!


Your homemade herbal popsicle's best feature is that you get to decide what goes in them and how much sweetener they have. The whole family will enjoy this, especially the youngsters!



You really can't go wrong if you vary the herbs to suit your preferences.


I'm going to share three fantastic herbal popsicle recipes with you in this blog article.


Popsicles with tangy lemon balm and passion fruit


All you lovers of sourness should try this dish! The basis is an energizing and calming infusion of lemon balm (Melissa officinalis). This herbal popsicle recipe, which has a lemon balm base, works well as a nervine and promotes the nervous system's general performance (Ehrlich, 2011). Lemon juice is added for an extra-fresh flavor, which is then rounded off with some honey and pulp from fresh passion fruit. Produces 4 popsicles.


Ingredients 400 mL of purified water

fresh lemon balm, half a cup (Melissa officinalis)

1 huge lemon's fresh juice

Four mature passionfruits (Passiflora edulis)

Honey, 4 teaspoons



Directions

Using the filtered water and lemon balm, prepare an infusion and let it cool to room temperature.

Combine the lemon juice, infusion, and honey after pressing the lemon.

Pour the infusion mixture into the popsicle mold after adding the passion fruit and a few lemon balm leaves.

Put for at least 4 hours or overnight in the freezer.



Creamy Popsicles with Coconut and Matcha Lime


Are iced matcha lattes something you enjoy? Then these pops will win your heart! If the watery popsicles aren't your cup of tea, the lime zest and juice nicely counterbalance the flavors of the coconut milk and green tea. Produces 4 popsicles.


Matcha is green tea (Camellia sinensis) that has been prepared so that the full leaves, rather than just an infusion, can be consumed, making it more strong. It has the largest concentration of flavonoids, which green tea is known for and which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Green tea speeds up the liver's detoxification process, which helps it do its duty of keeping the body's level of inflammatory substances under control (Romm, n.d.).


Ingredients

thick and creamy coconut milk, 400 ml.

Matcha powder, 2 tablespoons

1 lime (juice and peel) (juice and peel)

Honey, 4 teaspoons



Directions

Matcha powder with a little bit of water should be whisked until lump-free.

Grate some lime zest after pressing the lime.

Add the honey and combine the coconut milk with the juice and peel.

Pour the coconut mixture into the popsicle mold after adding the matcha.

Put for at least 4 hours or overnight in the freezer.



Elderflower-Mint-Cucumber Popsicles for cooling


The summertime classic of cucumber and mint is made even more pleasant when these gorgeous elder blooms are used as the base for the infusion. By pushing blood and heat to the skin's surface, where they are discharged through pores, elderflower (Sambucus nigra) aids in bodily cooling. It is also a diuretic, which promotes the kidneys to remove any extra heat (McIntyre, 2000). Produces 4 popsicles.


Ingredients 400 mL of purified water

half a tiny cucumber; one lime;

6-8 fresh mint leaves, 2 teaspoons of fresh or dried elder (Sambucus nigra) flower

Honey, 4 teaspoons



Directions

Using the filtered water and elderflower, prepare an infusion and let it cool to room temperature.

Thinly slice the cucumber.

Combine the lime juice, infusion, and honey after pressing the lime.

Pour the infusion mixture into the popsicle mold after adding the cucumber slices and mint leaves.

Put for at least 4 hours or overnight in the freezer.
