PREPARATION: 20 minutes | FREEZING: minimum 6 hours | YIELD: 6 to 8 lollipops
In a pot, bring the coconut milk and maple syrup to a boil.
Put the tea bags in the hot liquid, turn off the heat and steep with a lid for 10 minutes. Put everything in the fridge until completely cooled.
Remove the bags. Add almond milk or yogurt and mix well.
Enjoy tasting! I suggest you make a double recipe right away.
“Homemade popsicles are a must for cooling off during the summer! To add a good dose of protein, why not make a healthier version with coconut milk, almond milk or Greek yogurt, and the delicious Myosotis herbal tea from FloralTea? A version rich in tropical and anise flavors, highlighting our beautiful seasonal blueberries, and reminiscent of the magnificent natural blue lagoon color of this infusion!
Let yourself be charmed by the creamy texture of coconut milk and the juicy, chewy blueberries scattered here and there in the lollipops. A real summer delight just the way we like them! This healthy version of the classic ""popsicle"" will be popular with young children and adults alike. A must for hot summer days, to redo and consume without too much moderation!
Rich in nutrients, FloralTea Forget-Me-Not herbal tea contains active ingredients that will play a role in your health and well-being as well as your taste buds! Ginkgo leaves, Ginkgo biloba, the main plant in the Myosotis infusion blend, are known to improve and facilitate arterial, capillary and venous blood circulation. Also, ginkgo slows cell aging, while helping to fight against memory problems and symptoms related to mental fatigue.
As for the forest forget-me-not it contains, its magnificent blue flowers make it an excellent healthy herbal tea rich in vitamin C, as good for calming the nerves as it is for helping sleep. It reduces blood pressure, improves vision and nourishes the skin. It would help detoxify the liver, thus facilitating weight loss. In addition, thanks to the digestive and stimulating properties of the liver function of star anise, very present in the herbal tea of Myosotis of FloralTea, the extraordinary benefits of this wonderful infusion will only be increased.
