Rooibos Herbal Tea
Have you tried organic Fraser Tea? We love their Rainbow Rooibos Organic Herbal Tea. This herbal tea is delicious either hot or iced but absolutely fantastic in an ice pop. With sweet Michigan cherries, raspberries, coconut, lemongrass, organic rooibos and honey bush teas, this tea is naturally sweet and aromatic and really makes these popsicles special.
You can use either loose leaf tea or sachets for this recipe. We like to brew our tea hot for this recipe as it helps melt and incorporate the honey into the ice pop mixture.

Burst of Seasonal Berries
Strawberries, cherries, blueberries and raspberries are all in season right now. Have you been out to the farms berry picking yet? When we were little, our parents used to take us strawberry picking early in the morning, WITHOUT ANY BREAKFAST. So, when you are about 5 years old, it goes something like this… One strawberry in the basket and one strawberry in our mouths and this process was repeated for about 4 quarts. Trust us! We were so sick of strawberries that we could not look at another strawberry for the rest of the year.
However, the fun did not end there. Then, we were all shuttled back home and had to clean the strawberries and pull the green tops off so they could be frozen and make lots of Strawberry Rhubarb Refrigerator Jam.
The great news is that you can use either fresh or frozen berries in our Rainbow Berry Rooibos Ice Pops.
No Refined Sugar
We love our treats and desserts only delicately sweet. It allows you to taste the delicate berry flavors and the herbal tea. Honey is delightful addition and we add it to the rooibos herbal tea when it is still hot. However, if you want to make this recipe vegan, you can exchange with sugar, sugar alternative or even maple syrup. To keep this recipe low carb, exchange honey with a sugar alternative of choice like stevia. We have learned that once you quit sugar and allow the natural flavors of your food shine, you need less sweeteners.
