I’m sick. Bleh. It’s one of those colds that just comes on suddenly — one minute you’re fine, the next minute your throat is on fire. So I decided to make lemons into lemonade and make an ice pop to make myself feel better.
Now, as I have mentioned before, I tend to dislike pre-making ingredients for ice pops. But for today I made an exception. I set the tea to steep before I put the baby to bed, then chilled it for an hour or so before making my pop. While it was still hot, I mixed in about a tablespoon of honey. If I had been making the tea to drink, I would have used just a fraction of that amount but I wanted to make sure that the base was sweet enough not to stick to the Zoku.
I did not expect to like these pops. They’re “medicine,” after all. And frankly, I really don’t enjoy the tea I used to make them. But the pops surprised me — they were really tasty and they really did soothe my throat a little. Who knew the Zoku could be practical, as well as fun?
