3 Herb-Infused Popsicle Recipes

1. Pineapple-Sage Popsicles

First up, I decided to combine the tropical pineapple with a sage-infused citrus base. Pineapple is rich in vitamin C and is known to help fight off illness and boost the immune system by stimulating the activity of the white blood cells in the body. Sage, also known as Salvia officinalis, derived from the Latin word, salvere, which means “to be saved.” Want some sage advice? Pun intended, of course, this herb has been known to boost your wisdom quotient. Not only does it have a soft, yet sweet-savory flavor, but it has also been prized for its health-promoting qualities.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of water
  • ½ cup agave nectar*
  • 1 lemon or lime
  • 1 sprig of sage
  • ½ cup pineapple (crushed or diced)

Directions:

  1. Boil one cup of water.
  2. Add agave nectar and stir until well combined.
  3. Add lemon/lime slices and juice from said fruit, along with a sprig of sage.
  4. Add second cup of water. Allow to steep for at least 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Remove lemon/lime slices and sprig of sage and add pineapple.
  6. Pour into popsicle mold and freeze.
  7. Enjoy!

Chef Note: You can honestly use any sweetener of your choice, and I have been known to use monk fruit and agave nectar interchangeably. Both work very well in this recipe. You can also add more or less to suit your desired sweetness.

Chef Note: You can kick things up a notch by adding a scoop of Keto Elevate® or Ageless Multi-Collagen®.

Chef Note: You could use coconut water in this recipe in keeping with the tropical flavor profile.

Blueberry-Mint Popsicles

Blueberries are one of the best options for your healthy diet. They are low on the glycemic index and can help support heart health, bone strength, skin health, healthy blood pressure, and mental health. Mint or mentha belongs to the Lamiaceae family, which contains around 15 to 20 plant species, including peppermint and spearmint. Mint can soothe digestive problems, contains antiviral and antibacterial properties that may help keep flu and cold symptoms at bay, and may help with headaches. This makes them a delicious and healthy combination for a top-notch herb-infused popsicle.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of water
  • ½ cup agave nectar*
  • 1 lemon or lime
  • 1 bunch of mint leaves
  • ½ cup blueberries

Directions:

  1. Boil one cup of water.
  2. Add agave nectar and stir until well combined.
  3. Add lemon/lime slices and juice from said fruit, along with a few mint leaves.
  4. Add second cup of water, and allow the mixture to steep for 10 to 15 minutes or more.
  5. Remove lemon/lime slices and mint and stir in blueberries.
  6. Pour into popsicle mold and freeze.
  7. Enjoy!

Chef Note: Again, you can use any sweetener of your choice. Both monk fruit and agave nectar work interchangeably in this recipe, and you can adjust the amounts to reach your desired sweetness.

Chef Note: You can kick things up a notch by adding a scoop of Keto Elevate® or Ageless Multi-Collagen®.

Chef Note: You could also add pomegranate seeds to this one for a nice mix-up.

Strawberry-Thyme Popsicles

Strawberries are packed with vitamins, fiber, and they’re particularly high in antioxidants known as polyphenols. These juicy red berries are also a sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie food. Thyme has a long history of use in natural medicine in connection with chest and respiratory problems, including coughs, bronchitis, and chest congestion. It is an excellent source of vitamin C, a very good source of vitamin A, and a good source of iron, manganese, copper, and dietary fiber.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of water
  • ½ cup agave nectar*
  • 1 lemon or lime
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • ½ cup strawberries, sliced

Directions:

  1. Boil one cup of water.
  2. Add agave nectar and stir until well combined.
  3. Add lemon/lime slices and juice from said fruit, along with a sprig of thyme.
  4. Add second cup of water. And let rest for at least 10 – 15 minutes.
  5. Remove lemon/lime slices and thyme and add sliced strawberries.
  6. Pour into popsicle mold and freeze.
  7. Enjoy!

Chef Note: Again, you can choose monk fruit instead of agave nectar interchangeably as they both work very well in this herb-infused popsicle recipe, and adjust the amount to your desired sweetness level.

Chef Note: You can kick things up a notch by adding a scoop of Keto Elevate® or Ageless Multi-Collagen®.

Chef Note: You could also add cooling cucumber to these for a delicious, healthy, refreshing addition.
