Strawberry Orange Hibiscus Popsicles

Let me just say that it’s HOT!!!  We recently moved from Seattle to Las Vegas, and while trading the gray days for the sun has been good for me, the heat is definitely a shocker and sure does take a toll on my energy when I’m out in it for any length of time.  I’ve always loved popsicles, especially in the summer, and my kids and I have been gobbling these up daily as a wet, cold treat to help cool us down.  They’re super easy to make, cheap, and of course, healthy 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp dried Hibiscus
  • 8 oz water
  • 8 oz Orange juice
  • 1/2 cup pureed or sliced strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon raw sugar, agave nectar or stevia (optional)

To Make:

  • Bring water to a boil and pour over the Hibiscus.  Let steep for 30 minutes or so.  If you’re adding a sweetener, do so about halfway through steeping process to allow it to dissolve.  Discard/compost the hibiscus.
  • While the hibiscus is steeping, puree or slice the strawberries
  • Combine the hibiscus tea and orange juice.
  • Pour into popsicle mold (you’ll need about 8 molds) filling approximately 3/4 of the way to the top
  • Add in strawberries to each mold
  • Freeze for a couple of hours and enjoy!
