Strawberry Chamomile Popsicles

A few weekends back we bought a bunch of strawberries and I kind of had a feeling that we wouldn't eat them all before they went funny.  My solution? Make popsicles! I bought some moulds a few months back and tried making coconut popsicles but they turned out kind of disgusting. I am happy to say that this batch turned out super delicious.

I was thinking about what I could put with the strawberries and then I thought about all of the chamomile we have growing in the backyard that I had yet to use. I decided that strawberry chamomile popsicles sounded really good.

I picked a little bunch of chamomile, stuck it in a small teapot with a strainer, boiled some water and let it steep and then cool.
Once my brew was cool I combined 1 cup of tea with an overflowing cup of strawberries & a few squeezes of agave in my blender*.
I blended it up, filled up my popsicle tray, waited a few hours and enjoyed a delicious, refreshing strawberry chamomile popsicle. I could really taste the chamomile which I love! Also, a side note...when I tasted what I had blended up out of the blender, I thought it was too sweet. However, when it was in popsicle form it was just right. I need to remember to make the popsicle mixture a little sweeter than I think I need to for perfect popsicles!
Just to recap this super simple recipe it was:
1 cup chamomile tea (made from fresh leaves but you could probably use regular tea)
1 cup fresh strawberries
Agave syrup (sweeten to taste)

Let me know if you try them or if you have a favourite popsicle to make!

  1. I never would have thought to pur chamomile and strawberries together. It sounds soo yummy! I love agave too... MmmMmm!

  2. those sound awesome! I just made my very first batch of homemade pops last night. I'm anxious to get home from work today & try them! I did strawberry & peach, with a dash of coconut...yum!

  3. I like your nails matching the ingredients <3

  5. Oh my, that sounds so yummy! I love chamomile, and I wish I had some fresh! I definitely want to try this and the tip about making it sweeter than you think is perfect, last time I made popsicles they weren't very good cause I thought it was too sweet and added stuff to dull it down, then they were yucky.


  6. Delicious combo! We've been making popsicles 'round here too & I also thought the sweet thing was funny {goes for other flavors too, by the way lol}

  7. Sounds delicious! You're really creative.

  9. Sounds yummy! Did it make you sleepy though? Chamomile always knocks me out xD

  10. This sounds seriously delicious. My boyfriend and I picked up half a flat of organic strawberries at the farmers' market yesterday - delicious but hard to say how long they'll stay nice. Hopefully I'll have time to try making this on Friday!

  11. Ooh that looks lovely!


  12. That's a perfect summer treat! Strawberries are the best :)

  13. First of all, your nails look AMAZING! Picking chamomile? Your backyard sounds like a dream come true :) I will have to try these with regular ol' store bought ;) enjoy!

  14. Hey, putting chamomile tea in a popsicle sounds fantastic! Great idea! I'm gonna try it for sure.

  15. We have the same measuring cups... anyways, that recipe sounds fantastic and very refreshing!

  16. I am just loving all the popsicle and icy recipes popping up online lately! This one looks great! It's supposed to be 115 here in Indiana today. So I could definitely just roll around in a big vat of popsicles and be content with life.

  17. Yum! I'm really into smoothies, but it sounds like some of the same rules apply - flavors seem to be more muted when frozen. Sometimes I toss veggies in my smoothies and if I add in too many, it's better to drink the smoothie while it's mostly frozen vs. letting it defrost into juice because the veggie flavors become more pronounced and overwhelming as it warms.
