Iced Tea Fruit Pops & Numi Tea Giveaway

Iced Tea Fruit Popsicles

I can’t believe how quickly the summer is slipping by. This past weekend I drove down for a short trip to Portland, Oregon only to find that I had packed all the wrong clothes. Apparently I should have checked the weather report before packing only sandals, teeshirts, capris, and a really light sweatshirt. My feet were so cold in the mornings that I had to do that horrible Pacific Northwest trend of wearing socks with sandals. Oh it was bad.

I’m not ready for summer to end. I’m not ready for the sunshine to go away and the clouds of fall to roll in. Not just yet anyways.  After all, we still have popsicles to make.

Let me just start by saying… oh my gosh… I never knew frozen fruit could be sooo good.

I’ve been playing around with  tea a lot this summer and decided it was time to transform tea from a beverage into a frozen treat… could it be done? Yes. And with the addition of fresh summer fruit, we don’t even need to add sugar. These iced tea fruit pops are the perfect way to enjoy the last few weeks of summer – sandals, socks, and all.

And, because I’ve been having so much fun with tea lately I’m excited that the nice folks at Numi Tea are letting me share a special giveaway with you! Scroll down for more details…

Iced Tea and Fruit Popsicles Iced Tea and Fruit Popsicles

These pops are easy to make. And if you have kids, this is the perfect way to get them involved in making a healthy snack together.

Start by brewing two cups of your favorite tea (I used Numi honeybush tea because it has a naturally sweet flavor that goes well with summer fruit). Then slice up your summer stone fruit and grab some berries. After allowing your tea to cool a bit, simply add your fruit and tea to your popsicle molds and freeze! Easy peasy.

Since popsicle molds differ greatly and the amount of fruit and tea needed really depends on how much fruit you add in each mold I did my best to write a general recipe below, but please know that you might not use all of the fruit listed below. I based this amount on my popsicle mold set, which makes 6 popsicles. I also mentioned this in my last popsicle recipe, but if you are purchasing a popsicle mold set, try to find one that uses BPA-free plastic (like mine). There are a lot of cute ones out there nowadays so you’ll have plenty of options.

    Iced tea has been my jam this summer, and this looks like a brand new way to enjoy it AND my new popsicle molds! I’m in Seattle too and determined to fit in all the hot weather activity I can before the rain comes back!

  2. sunnygrrlSB says

    I have a cherry green tea that I love in the AM, but I love all kinds of tea all day. I never thought of using it for Popsicle- I have tons of starfruit from the tree in my yard – I wonder what kind of tea would make a good starfruit Popsicle?

  3. Shane D says

    I drink some variety of tea every morning before work. I love checking out new flavors and haven’t tried a chai in a while!

  4. Mackenzie Rifkin says

    Ever since living in Japan, I’ve become sort of a “purist” when it comes to my tea… I love it iced or piping hot, I’ll take it either way… but nothing added! No milk, sweetener, nothing. Just the delicious flavor of whatever tea I’m drinking!

  5. Kiersten says

    I love iced tea! But there is just something about a cup of hot tea in the morning with some homemade almond milk…Yum!

  6. says

    I have loved Numi Tea since receiving a beautiful gift of the clear glass teapot and flowering teas about 8 years ago. My newest favorite is the Savory Tea and I made popsicles with Tomato Mint last week, adding chopped mint leaves — has been so refreshing in our recent heat wave!

  7. Delainey E. says

    If I’m drinking black tea I like it iced no sweetener. If I’m having green tea I like it iced with sweetener.

  8. yvonne r wolf says

    What a great way to combine my love of tea (especially Numi’s Rooibos) and popsicles. Something a little more fattening and sweeter is to combine tea, sugar and whole milk or cream to make a dessert popsicle. Yummy!

  9. EWhit says

    Thanks for the great recipe. I’ll definitely have to try this. Never thought to brew tea and make popcicles out of it!

    Hi Sonnet,
    I “pinned” the post under my “wish list” board. Pinterest under Rosanne Wolf. Thanks again for this contest and your great blog!

  11. Jonathan says

    I love how simple yet creative all your recipes are! I never thought of using tea to make a frozen treat. I will definitely be trying this. Also, I live in Miami so these are appropriate year round. Woohoo!!

  12. Marygrace says

    I enjoy a nice cup of hot tea. I always use the same cup, not the same without it. I also enjoy iced tea & some times if inlet my hot tea sit too long i will just pop in some ice cubes for iced tea. All in all i enjoy tea a great deal.

  13. Kate says

    Repinned this great recipe to pinterest! I love hot tea on a cold Minnesota winter day and iced on a hot summer day with a book!

  14. Margery says

    I do like honey bush and rooibos teas. I live down here in the hot, humid, sultry Deep South where we usually enjoy our teas sugar-sweet and iced. However, I have learned to drop the “sweet” part, and just make black decaf iced. It’s very refreshing!

  15. Meghan Finley says

    I’m an iced tea addict this time of year. I just had some sorbet with tea in it though so I’m dying to try my hand at it
