These honey sweetened chamomile popsicles are soothing and refreshing. They make a great cooling treat on a hot day but they can also help calm the crankiest of kids.
Everyone loves a good popsicle! They are cooling and refreshing and if you make them yourself, they are even healthy!
I obviously love popsicles as is evident by the many recipes I have on this blog, including my huge list of over 75+ healthy popsicle recipes!
Are popsicles healthy?
Store bought popsicles often contain too much sugar and artificial dyes. However, homemade popsicles are healthy because you can control what ingredients are in them!
When you make popsicles yourself you can leave out the sugar, subbing in healthier substitutes like honey (or leaving out sweetener entirely!). And you definitely do not need to rely on artificial dyes!
You can even go beyond by including healthy ingredients like veggies or herbs. Herbal popsicles like these chamomile popsicles not only taste great but they provide some herbal benefits as well!
Chamomile is well known for its calming and relaxing properties. It’s often used as a sleep aid! However, chamomile is also great for calming tummies, soothing sore throats, and decreasing inflammation on sore teething gums. (link)
Honey Sweetened Chamomile Popsicles
(makes about 8 popsicles)
4 cups water
4 tbs dried chamomile (or 2 tea bags)
4 tbs honey (note: do not give honey to babies under 1 year)
In a small pot, bring water to a boil.
Remove from heat and add in dried chamomile.
Let steep 5-10 minutes.
Remove chamomile from the tea.
Add in honey and stir until dissolved.
Allow the tea to cool before pouring into popsicle molds.
Place into the freezer for a few hours. (makes about 8 popsicles)
I love these stainless steel molds but they can be a bit pricey, in which case this set is a more affordable option that is BPA free.
