Happy first day of summer! Can you believe summer is already here? That means that Foreign Taste Buds has gone through 3 different seasons already. Time is flying by! Considering the occasion (and the 80 degree weather!) I decided to post something different this week. This week I am infusing tea with my recipe post and introduce tea popsicles!

Inspiration for Tea Popsicles

So this idea came to me one night when I went to reach for the ice cream in my freezer, but had to remember that I am ‘supposed’ to be dairy free. So instead of ice cream, my next thought was some iced tea. But of course, I didn’t have ice. So I decided that I would go ahead and make some tea popsicles to curb my summer sweet tooth.

To give your tea popsicles a naturally creamy-ness and natural sweetener, I add fruit! This is where you get to be creative and mix things up. It is a fun and easy dessert project to do with your kids too! Below you will find a simple recipe for the mango green tea popsicles that I am loving. But of course, it is easy to go without fruit, mix and match or even just add chunks instead of a puree. Another one of my favorite combinations is Republic of Tea’s English Rose tea with some slices of strawberries (See tea review here) or even try a sweetened rooibos tea with a splash of orange juice and vanilla to get a super sweet treat. You can also try an herbal tea to aid in any medical problems throughout the day.
