Mojito Popsicles with Lemon and Honey
- Popsicle molds
- 15-20 fresh mint leaves
- 1 lemon
- 1 cup hot water
- 2-3 tbsp honey
- Place mint in Mason jar and pour over hot water. Cover, and allow to steep for 2 hours. Optional, muddle the mint leaves in the water to release more flavour.
- When the water has cooled somewhat but is still warm, add the honey and stir to combine.
- When cool, squeeze the juice of 1 lemon in, and stir to combine.
- Strain the mixture.
- Pour into popsicle molds.
- Optional: You can also add in full mint leaves and lemon slices to the popsicle molds like these. They also add a fun flavour, extra minty or sour. If you want to add in mint leaves or lemon slices, just fill the mold halfway, add them in, and then top up the rest of the way.
- Freeze the mojito popsicles for at least 5 hours to set.
