Another yummy summer time recipe! This time featuring the delicious Dong Ding Oolong tea by Tea Ave. I have been loving this delicious tea popsicle recipe this summer and felt the need to share!
Ingredients: 10-15 black cherries, 1 packet of unflavored gelatin, 1/2 cup Dong Ding Oolong by Tea Ave, 2 tbs of lemon juice, 2 tbs Splenda, 1 sprig of fresh mint, 1 cup of water.
Steep your tea, use half the amount of water you would usually use when making a cup to bring out the flavor of the oolong. Cut up your black cherries and dice up your mint leaves. Place cherries, oolong tea, mint, lemon juice and Splenda into the chopper. If you like more tart or sweet treats, add more Splenda and lemon juice to taste.
Blend away! I blended mine until it was mostly smooth but still a little chunky to give the popsicles texture. Mix gelatin into a cup of cold water, whisk until thoroughly separated. Place gelatin mixture in saucepan and mix in your purée and bring to boil. Stir often.
Let your hot concoction cool to room temperature, then place into your popsicle molds. Freeze for 6-8 hours.
These yummy treats are perfect on a hot afternoon! Never had oolong tea? Try these out.
