It is hot and the children love mint tea.
What better way to beat the heat and give them their mint tea than by making Popsicles.
a handful of fresh mint leaves (we have some spare mint growing)
honey or other sweetener of choice.
Boil mint leave for about 5 minutes in order to extract as much flavour as possible.
Blend and strain leaves using cheese cloth or a very fine sieve.
Sweeten to taste.
Freeze in Popsicle molds.
To unfold run them under warm water for a few seconds and twist and remove.
