Wild Strawberry Ice Tea Popsicles

Wild Strawberry Ice Tea Popsicles

Enjoy the goodness of sweet, fresh strawberries and keep cool this summer with these Wild Strawberry Ice Tea Popsicles. Easy to make and only two ingredients! 

I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but here in Georgia, the summer heat has been relentless. It’s been in the high 90’s with barely any rain. But that doesn’t stop the humidity from choking you when you step outside. And this weekend is supposed to be the hottest on record, reaching 106!

As you can imagine, I’ve been trying my best to stay cool. Thank goodness you can’t see me right now, as I have my hair up in a turban because I’m deep conditioning it just to help me stay cool. I figured I might as well take advantage of the heat!

I’ve also been catching up on some reading. The last book I read was “Everything We Keep” by Kerry Lonsdale. It’s a romance suspense type book and it kept my attention. Let’s just say, I read 13 chapters in one day! I definitely recommend this book.

And if you’re a Prime member on Amazon, it’s a free Kindle book. At least it was when I downloaded it.

Right now I’m reading “Inheritance” by Thomas Wymark which is a psychological mystery suspense thriller. It starts slow but kicks it up near the end. I’m almost done reading it. I don’t think it’s as good as “Everything We Keep” but it keeps you guessing as to what’s going on and what’s going to happen next.

All this reading is why I haven’t been too busy on social media. Or in the kitchen. But I did find time to make these Wild Strawberry Ice Tea Popsicles. Well, I say time but really after the tea is made, they only take about five minutes to make. And with only two ingredients.

You know it’s coming….Easy peasy! Yes, I had to say that!

Seriously, these Popsicles are so easy to make and with no added sugar. Unless you want to add some, but that’s totally up to you. I’m trying to cut my sugar intake so I’m fine with just the sweetness from the strawberries.

And yes, I’m one of those people who can drink my tea without sugar. Not to say I don’t prefer the sweet ice tea, but I certainly can do without all that sugar.

Back to these Popsicles. I came across Adagio teas after I did a Google search of Sweet and Spicy Monkey. You know, because I was curious. And bored.

Well, Adagio teas came up on my search results because they actually have a tea blend called “Sweet Spicy Monkey”!

I was so excited that I wrote them and they sent me a gift certificate so I could try it. I also got a few other different teas to try and this free sample of Wild Strawberry Ice Tea.

I absolutely love this Wild Strawberry Ice Tea! And with trying to keep cool this summer, I came up with this idea to beat the heat and enjoy this lovely tea.

These Popsicles are great for kids too because not only can they help in making them but they’re also wonderful for anybody who’s diabetic or with a food allergy, other than strawberries or tea.

Did I mention this Wild Strawberry Tea is also caffeine-free? Yes it is so you don’t have to worry about the kids high on caffeine!

I hope you enjoy these easy Wild Strawberry Ice Tea popsicles while keeping your cool in this summer heat.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add 4 cups of water and pouch of Adagio wild strawberry tea to a large pitcher before you go to bed. Let sit overnight in refrigerator.
  2. In the morning, pour wild strawberry ice tea into popsicle molds, filling about 1/2 inch from the top.
  3. Place strawberry slices and a few diced strawberries into popsicle mold, I got about 1 to 2 sliced strawberries and a few diced strawberries into mine. Don't add too many strawberries as you want some ice tea in the popsicle molds too.
  4. Fill remaining space with ice tea.
  5. Place popsicle tops with stick on top and place into the freezer for at least 4 hours.
    To Remove popsicles from mold:
  1. Run cool water over the underside of the popsicle molds without getting the tops wet. Let sit for about 5 minutes on the counter.
  2. Gently remove popsicles from molds. If popsicles stick, repeat cool water and let sit a couple more minutes before trying to remove again.

Notes

- You can add pureed strawberries, honey, maple syrup, agave, or sugar if you want them sweeter.

- Time includes tea sitting overnight.
