Make mint tea by combining 800 ml (equals 3 ⅓ cup) boiling hot water and mint leaves. Stir and let steep for 5 minutes.
Add lime, lemon and maple syrup to your mint tea. Stir well.
Add in some lime or lemon zest if desired (adjust according to taste).
Strain and pour into your popsicle moulds, making sure you don’t fill it all the way to the top. The liquid will expand as it freezes so leave about 0,5 cm of space on top.
Cover and freeze for about 8 hours.
Run under warm water before taking out of the mould. Enjoy!
If using mint tea bags instead of fresh mint leaves, follow the exact same recipe but substitute fresh mint for teabags. I use 3 mint tea bags to ensure a strong flavour.
I recommend waiting for approx. 8 hours before removing the popsicles from the freezer and eating them.
Trying to remove your popsicle? Before trying to pull out your popsicle from the mould, run it under warm (but not super hot) water. This will help release it from the mould, making it considerably easier for you to remove.
You can add a very thin slice of lime to your popsicle before freezing. This will create a beautiful visual effect, however, it's going to be harder to eat the popsicle.
