This sweet treat is packed with immune-enhancing green tea, oranges, lemons, and ginger. And it’s a great way to soothe a dry throat. For kids, try making it with decaffeinated tea and freezing the mixture in Popsicle molds.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1/2 cup water
3 bags green tea
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
3 tablespoons honey (or to taste)
Heat water to nearly boiling. Steep tea bags in hot water for 2 minutes. Discard bags and let tea cool.
Press minced ginger through a clean garlic press, catching ginger juice in a medium bowl. Discard remaining ginger solids.
Add cooled tea and remaining ingredients to ginger juice; stir. Adjust sweetness if necessary. Pour mixture into an 8x8-inch shallow pan and place in freezer. Fluff ingredients with a fork every 30 minutes or until the mixture is icy and fluffy, about 2-1/2 hours.
