Ok, it is cold out, but it is still the perfect time to make popsicles. These popsicles will come in handy when your family is under the weather. Keeping hydrated is a must. So instead of just drinking juice and water, I try to make a fun and tasty treat, without artificial colors or extra sugar.
To create these colors:
- Red: Beet Powder
- Yellow or Orange: Turmeric Ground
- Green: Matcha Powder
First, I make a simple syrup. Simple syrup is just filtered water with honey or sugar. I like to use honey. Heat water just enough to dissolve the sugar or honey in the mixture. Don't add too much sugar or honey, just a hint of sweetness is enough for a tasty popsicle.
Then, I add a splash of lemon to my mixture. Next, I add my all natural food coloring of choice. Now I’m ready to mix: pour contents into molds, pop into the freezer and in a few hours, you have your very own hydration popsicle for the entire family. I use the molds I have... who said mom and dad can't have a rocket ship shaped popsicle!
