This recipe is so easy to prepare that more than sharing a recipe I feel I’m sharing an idea. This combination of the tartness of hibiscus and the sweetness of the strawberries is the perfect combination for a hot summery day.
To prepare them…
Steep hibiscus tea as you would typically prepare any tea. If you buy loose hibiscus flowers, boil about 2 cups of water. When the water has a strong boil turn off the heat and add about a quarter of a cup of dried hibiscus flowers. Let it sit until cold then add some type of sweetener. Wash and slice the strawberries put them inside the ice pop molds, insert the popsicle stick, pour some hibiscus tea and put in the freezer for about three hours.
