During the warm days of summer, we like to indulge in herbal popsicles. Making your own popsicles provides instant refreshment, while also fortifying you with a little plant power. When researching other plant-powered popsicles, we consulted Half Baked Harvest’s Hibiscus and Minty Watermelon Popsicle recipe, making a few medicinal twists of our own by adding in our organic Ginger tea and organic Hibiscus tea. These sweet and semi-spicy herbal additions will zap you right out of a heat fog, all while providing a fast and healthy treat.
Ginger rhizome (Zingiber officinale) has been used in traditional medicine practices, like Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine, for over 2,000 years and is loved the world over for its remarkable digestive benefits.* Ginger loves heat and humidity, and flourishes in subtropical or tropical climates. Hibiscus also flourishes in tropical climates, and is known for its tarty and tangy taste, as well as its ability to support cardiovascular health.*
This zesty hot-weather remedy is easy to make and almost too simple to eat! Better yet, they are made entirely with whole foods, so you can enjoy without feeling guilty.
