Green tea and peach ice lollies

3 Jul

No matter how old you are, ice lollies are always exciting! Here’s the proof: since we decided we’d have to try and make our own ice lollies, the whole Lahloo team has been buzzing about it. Tea ice lollies! Think about it. Aren’t you excited now? If you love cold infused tea as much as we do, you’ll love this recipe. It couldn’t be simpler: just three ingredients, and the triumph of making something that is vibrant, healthy, refreshing, colourful and fun!

We’ve used our South Korean Nokcha as the base for these lollies. It makes a fantastic cold infusion, refreshing and invigorating. But adding just a dash of peach puree to our cold infused Nokcha (also great with Japanese Sencha) will amaze you! It’s nothing  like those peached iced “teas” that you can find everywhere during the summer, with no tea flavour whatsoever and all packed with sugar. The cold drink is unbelievable good, but freeze it and you’ll become rapidly addicted. Here’s how to make it!

Ingredients: 

  • 500ml water
  • 2tsp LahlooNokcha
  • a small tin of peaches in light syrup

Infuse 2 tsp Lahloo Nokcha in half a litre of cold water for 3 hours. Strain and leave aside. Blend the peach segments (without the syrup) until smooth. Pour the peach puree into the ice lolly mould and top up with the cold Nokcha (we use 1 part peach puree per 2 parts of tea). If you do it carefully, you’ll get an ombre effect that looks quite pretty! Carefully place the sticks and freeze for at least three hours until solid.

Our tip: if you don’t have a mould, use an ice cube tray and toothpicks as sticks!
