Hibiscus popsicles with real fruit
Servings: 4 popsicles
- 1 1/2 (12oz) water.
- 1/3 cup (10g) Hibiscus flowers.
- 1/3 - 1/2 cup (75g-110g) sugar. Note1
- Flavors of your choice. Note2
- 6 Tablespoons pomegranate seeds.
In a sauce pan over medium-high heat bring the water to a boil. Turn heat off and remove pan from heat.
Immediately stir in hibiscus flowers and sugar until dissolved.
Add any other flavors you are using at this time as well.
Cover and let it steep and cool completely for almost 45 minutes.
Strain mixture and pour into popsicle mold, freeze without the sticks for about 1.5 hours until it forms a slushy consistency.
Add pomegranate seeds on top then insert sticks.
Freeze for another 3-4 hours or until completely firm.
To get the popsicles out, you may want to put in warm water for just 15-20 seconds.
Note1 : you can use a sweeter of your choice or honey for a naturally sweetened popsicle.
Note2: You can make it as is, my favorite. Here are some suggestions for flavors use either one or more of cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, rose water or orange blossom water. I’ve also tried dissolving one Tablespoon of tamarind concentrate into the hot hibiscus mixture, tastes magnificent.
