Hot summer daysThe plump, juicy blackberry and a hot summer day are perfect companions. After spending the day elbow deep in stickers to fill buckets, cold delicious popsicles created with the bounty you have harvested is the ultimate reward.

The tea experts at Choice Organic Teas have shared their deliciously simple three ingredient popsicles with us and we couldn’t wait to give these a whirl. Since blackberries grow wild and abundantly in the Northwest, all we had to do to fill our ingredients list was step outdoors.

tea, blackberries, and honey until liquefied.

Tip: If you’re using cups as popsicle molds, you may want to wait for them to become more solid before adding the popsicle sticks to ensure the sticks freeze upright.
