Peach Tea Berry Popsicles

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on July 15, 2011

What’s better than playing outside and then sitting in the sun enjoying a popsicle?  The last few days have been cool and not at all popsicle weather here, but I’m hoping it gets hot again soon.  It’s been kind of a disappointing summer so far weather wise but I have to admit it is nice to have cooler weather too.  Especially nice for getting things done in the kitchen 🙂

Next time I would make a smaller version of these popsicles, because my daughter has a hard time eating these before they melt all over her.  But they’re alright for my son who’s almost four, so use your judgement on what size to make.  Next time I would try making some of these in an ice cube tray with wooden popsicle sticks for my daughter.

For anyone with kids, these are perfect even for smaller children if you make a smaller size as the berries(especially the raspberries and blackberries) don’t usually come out whole so they don’t pose a choking hazard.  If you are worried about it with the blueberries though, feel free to chop them in half.

Also, I know I say double strong tea, but that doesn’t mean you need to steep it any longer as with most teas that will lead to a bitter tasting tea.  Steep for the recommended amount of time with double the amount of tea bags or loose tea mix.

This sounds so refreshingly delicious!! Definitely something very suitable for the weather here in indonesia, where its summer all year round!

These sound great! I’ve pretty much been living on popsicles this summer.

These look fantastic, I love popsicles even when the weather is a little crappy out; I hope the sun and balmy temperatures turn up soon for you!

Great minds think alike, especially when the temperature’s over 90.! I love the tea idea, even though that’s an adult only beverage around here. (I don’t even want to think what my child would be like on caffeine.) Maybe I need to make adult only popsicles, sangria sounds good!

My kids would be crazy on caffeine too, I don’t even want to imagine! Haha. I used an herbal tea for these ones so they’re alright, but I made another kind of popsicle with chai tea just for myself. So yummy 🙂 Sangria sounds amazing! What a great idea!

Heidi, these look so cute and delicious. What a great healthier alternative to standard popsicles. I’ve always loved fruity ones. Thanks for sharing and I hope the nice weather returns to you soon.

These looks so yummy & refreshing! I so badly want one right now… Great post! Thanks for sharing… I should make the ice cube pops for my daughter! 🙂

Love it. These popsicles look like the perfect hot summer day treat! And so pretty too!

Yum! The perfect summer treat. Adding tea to treats is so much fun. Thanks for sharing 🙂

What a perfect and healthy way to chill during sunny days! 🙂

I always wondered how people managed to fill their Popsicle with fruit. I always thought it had to do with the fruit floating around. Looks yummy and easy. I will have to try it!

Yummy! Not only my kids, I’d love to have one (or..maybe 3 ^_^)! You have a great tip on its size. My 3 year old will take forever to finish this size while 5 year old will finish it quickly. Great idea. I just bought a Popsicle maker and I bookmarked this recipe. Thank you!!


18 Maria @ Scandifoodie July 15, 2011 at 23:11

What a clever idea! These look so refreshing!


19 Maryanna July 15, 2011 at 18:33

These look like the perfect summer treat. I made pudding pops with the Dixie cup method, and I’m dying to try more popsicle recipes…. especially the ones with fresh fruit in them (like these). Beautiful!

These look so refreshing and delicious, I hope your weather warms up soon so you can enjoy the benefits of this icy goodness!
