-Collaboration with YOGI TEA®–
Happy summer everybody. Time to celebrate the warmer months with something refreshing, such as vegan ice pops, made of my favorite tea. When I was little, my mom used to make ice pops made of juices and teas for me. And even though I’m no mom myself yet, I still like to have some delicious ice pops in my freezer. Because who doesn’t love a healthy alternative for ice cream – I sure do.
So while I type this post and also simultaneously eat an ice-pop I quickly want to use the chance and let you know that next week, I’ll be in Spain (yes, vacation season is finally here). So, while I’ll enjoy the hot Majorcan sun and sandy beaches, I won’t take my laptop with me. Just my phone and camera, so I can report everything for you and post my Majorca travel guide at the beginning of August. After my 10 days Spain holiday, I’ll fly (almost) directly to Rijeka, Croatia. *yay* But I’ll bring my laptop to Croatia in order that I can start preparing and uploading content for you. I’m especially excited to see my dear friend Stella again. If you don’t know her, she is my blogging babe and the best photographer there is. So a ton of traveling is happening this month and even more creating. And I can’t wait for that.
And also I want to thank YOGI TEA® for the lovely collaboration. I had a great time creating the content with you and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. x
But now, without further circumlocution, let me get to the ice pop recipe.
Ingredients for 8 ice pops:
- 3 bags YOGI TEA® Positive Energy
- 3 bags YOGI TEA® Lebensfreude
- fresh fruits (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries…)
- Prepare the tea as stated. I used 3 bags per serving, this way I achieved an even richer flavor.
- Let the tea cool down completely! You don’t want to use still warm tea for this.
- When the tea is cold, fill the ice pop forms with your chopped fruits. Afterward fill up with the cold tea (this way it’s less messy, as you know exactly how much tea you need to pour in each form).
- Now freeze overnight. Voila!
Tip: You can also use the tea as a base for a smoothie, which you can freeze into ice pops.
