Beat the heat!

With lemon balm popsicles!

Lemon balm is a soothing and calming herb,
popsicles are cooling and refreshing...
it's a total win/win!

To make these delightful treats:

3 cups of chopped lemon balm, leaves and stems
6 cups of water
Sweeten to taste

Simmer lemon balm and water for 20 minutes over low heat to make a tea.
Strain out leaves, then sweeten with sugar, honey, or stevia.
Pour into molds and freeze.

I made these refreshing pops for the kids (with a little help from Danny!).

Then I put fresh leaves and the tea mixture into ice cube trays to make my sweet tea super fancy!
