A big hello from North Florida! I'm Pam from Blueberries and Blessings.
I have known Heather for many years now, meeting in one of the many cooking clubs that have come and gone. I was lucky enough to meet her at long last at the recent Food And Wine Festival in Orlando - what a thrill! She is every bit as amazing in person if not more so!
So, when she was looking for guests to bring some popsicles to her, I had to jump at the chance. I had just bought my first set of molds and had been having a blast with mixing up frozen treats for my family.
I wanted to create something simple, yet something that would be special and represent me well, for those who don't know me.
These turned out great - very refreshing. My son loved them - he's a tea lover, so I knew he'd be easily won over.
I loved the blueberries throughout the frozen sweet southern nectar. Adding the blueberry juice into the tea gives the pops an extra burst of berry.
These were actually the first non-creamy pops that I had made, and I wasn't sure what I would think, but I actually think these were my favorite so far.
They are totally customizable - you can make your tea as strong as you'd like, as sweet as you'd like. If you want a nice lil zing, you can use a cranberry blueberry juice instead of a straight blueberry juice. It's the beauty of this recipe. I do hope you'll try it and hope you enjoy the lil south that will be hitting your mouth!
