Detox Tea Ice Lollies - Feat. Indigo Herbs*

It’s officially summer to me now the sun is shining and I can finally dust off my sandals and bikini… well I could dust off my bikini if I felt confident wearing one! How many of us planned to get fit this summer and have fallen off the wagon. I personally put my hands up, but not all hope is lost. When I was contacted by Indigo Herbs to create a recipe using some of their products I knew I had to come up with something delicious and healthy but keep with the summer theme.

Indigo Herbs kindly sent me their Super Cleanse Detox Herbal Tea and Strawberry Tea Infuser. The herbal tea is a warm blend of fennel, liquorice, nettle, dandelion, red clover and ginger. I decided that with these ingredients and a few added extras that I would make some refreshing ice lollies that don’t break the calorie bank!

Ingredients (Makes 4):
Super Cleanse Detox Herbal Tea
Strawberry Tea Infuser
50g Fresh Strawberries
Ice Lolly Moulds
800ml Water

First, add some of the Super Cleanse Detox Herbal Tea into the Strawberry Tea Infuser and add to a mug of boiling water. Let this brew for about 5 minutes, then add the boiling water to a jug of approximately 800ml worth of cold water and set aside to cool.

Chop some strawberries into small pieces and place a small amount into each lolly mould. Pour your Detox Tea mix into the lolly moulds and set in the freezer to cool for around 4-6 hours.

These ice lollies were easy to make, taste great and super low on calories. They are the perfect treat for this summer if you are trying to look your best. You can also mix up the fruit if you prefer. Try adding mango and kiwi or pineapple chunks instead of the strawberries.

Of course you can also use the Super Cleanse Detox Herbal Tea as it is intended. It contains 100% pure ingredients which is clearly outlined on the packaging and is also vegan. I love that the packaging is simple but contains all the information you need to know. There are clear instructions on the back of the packet explaining how much you need to use and how long to brew the tea for.

Will you be making these refreshing lollies this summer? Let me know what you think. Check out my other Indigo Herbs recipes if you get a moment, I have made Gingerbread Men, Banana Loaf, Tandoori Chicken and Energy Balls.
