Lavender + Lemon Balm Popsicles #RecipeinBloom
These herbal popsicles are easy to make and especially delicious on a hot day!
- 4 cups water
- 5-6 whole fresh lavender blossoms
- 1 small handful fresh lemon balm
- Lemon Verbena Elixer
- Lemon Zest (J’s addition)
- 2-4 tbsp honey
Bring the water to a boil, then pour over the lavender and lemon balm in a quart sized jar.
Steep the tea for 10-15 minutes, then strain out the herbs with a fine mesh sieve and stir in the honey to your desired sweetness. Do not steep longer – the lavender will become bitter
Let the tea cool down a bit (you can add a few ice cubes if you’re impatient like me), then pour it into a popsicle mold. Freeze for several hours or overnight.
What is the meaning behind Lavender, Lemon Balm and Lemon Verbena???
Lavender – distrust
Lemon Balm – sympathy
Notes for additional information:
I used this stainless steel popsicle mold in this recipe.
