blackberry and green tea popsicles

“Life was just a tire swing. ‘Jambalaya’ was the only song I could sing. Blackberry pickin’, eatin’ fried chicken, And I never knew a thing about pain. Life was just a tire swing.”

~ Jimmy Buffett

The 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 made with the days’ bounty 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.
