Peach & Mango Green Tea Popsicles


It's the perfect weather for popsicles, but all that sugar ends up in all the wrong places. So, this summer I'm trading in the sugar packed popsicles and replacing them with sweet and nearly sugar and calorie free popsicles made from Crystal Light and fresh fruit!

This recipe is quick and easy with only three ingredient. These popsicles end up being more like ice pops, but they are still delicious and refreshing on a hot summers day. They also make a good replacement for those high fat popsicles that kids crave.

Ingredients:
+ 1 packet of Crystal Light Peach Mango Green Tea (makes 2 quarts of green tea)
+ 6.5 cups water
+ 1 peach
Directions:
Combine 1 packet of Crystal Light Peach Mango Green Tea with 6.5 cups of water. These packets come in a tube of 5 each making 2 quarts of green tea. The directions call for 8 cups of water, but I like to use less so that the flavor is a bit stronger. After the water and powder is combined pour the liquid into your popsicle molds and add slices of your peaches. Be sure not to overfill them and leave room for the fruit. Place in the freezer and allow to fully freeze about 4 to 8 hours depending on the size of your popsicle molds. Enjoy!
