Fresh tangerine juice and hibiscus tea whisked together then poured into freezer pop bags. These tangerine hibiscus freezer pops are delicious and refreshing, the perfect summer treat.
I hope you’ve had a great week. I feel like this week has been unusually long. Maybe it’s because I came home from Seattle last weekend and went straight to work the next day. And since it’s another six day work week, it feels extra long. But to offset my vacation withdrawal, I’m already planning my next one at the end of August. This time we’re headed to San Diego.
In the mean time, let’s talk about another summer treat.
Every year, I have a new summer obsession. Last year, it was basically everything blueberry. From oatmeal to ice cream, I wanted to make blueberry everything. This year seems to be the year of otter pops, or freezer pops. However you like to call them.
I previously made lychee rosé otter pops for an adult version of our childhood summer treat. But this time, these freezer pops are kids friendly and seriously perfect for hot summer days. We had our heat wave a little early this year in San Francisco, but I also know that our city’s summer starts in September and runs through October. So I want to be prepared. And also for everyone else’s sake, we need cold treats to keep us cool during hot days.
These freezer pops take little room in the freezer so they’re perfect for storing until you need them. Which to be honest is pretty much any time.
