Peachy Hibiscus Popsicles #sponsored
Adagio Teas offered to let me pick a few flavors of tea and I am a HUGE fan of peach iced tea, so that was a no-brainer for me to choose to test out! Almost as soon as I received my box, I made some sun tea with the peach tea bag, and then we drank about half of the batch and I used some of it in this amazing fresh, fruity, tangy, refreshing popsicles! The combination of the hibiscus syrup, fresh peaches, and delicious tea is really summer perfection. It's a simple combination, and it packs a big punch.
My incredibly picky 6-year old loves these popsicles! From the pretty color to the cool and refreshing flavor, she gave it a big thumbs up.
Please do yourself a favor and give Adagio a visit - from the coupons and specials available, to the hugely extensive list of teas they offer, to the quality of their products you will not be disappointed. There will be many more recipes featuring their tea products from me in the future - I was able to order a little bit of the earl grey bravo, jasmine silver needle, peppermint, and some of the Gemini (Zodiac themed) tea - look at the description on that one: A light blend of white tea, rose hips and peach flavor stimulates Gemini's effervescent vitality. Geminis are sassy intellectuals who liven up every tea party with their quick-witted conversations. Apricot pieces, apples, and marigold petals are a colorful feast for the eyes and senses that will keep Geminis forever young.
Peachy Hibiscus Popsicles
2 cups Adagio Peach Iced Tea
2 small peaches, pitted and diced
2 TBS hibiscus syrup (see below)
- Place all ingredients in a blender, and puree until smooth (or blitz until it reaches your preferred consistency, if you want the peaches to maintain some texture).
- Pour into a popsicle mold, freeze, and enjoy!
4 TBS dried hibiscus flowers
1/2 cup + 1 TBS sugar
1/2 cup water
- Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer together for about 3 minutes (stir a few times to ensure sugar has blended in), or until the syrup begins to thicken.
- Allow to soak until cool to make sure all that hibiscus goodness is infused, then strain out the hibiscus flowers and discard.
- Set the syrup aside until ready to use.
