Thai Tea and Lychee Coconut Mint Popsicles

Often times the boyfriend brings home new products from the store and wants me to try it out.  I don’t always know what to do with it. But last night, he brought home popsicle molds!  I was so excited to use it especially with Memorial Day Weekend coming up.

So many ideas and I don’t know where to start.  I’ll just have to start with what I have at home.  Two flavors pop into my mind: Thai Tea and Lychee Coconut Mint.  Both only require a few ingredients.

Thai Tea Popsicle
Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Thai Tea mix
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk or half and half
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Tea Sock
  • Lychee Coconut Mint Popsicles
    Ingredients:

  • 1 can Lychee in syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut mint
  • 3 mint leaves
  • juice of half a lime
  • Let’s start with the Thai Tea. Begin by boiling hot water.

    Traditionally, Thai Tea is made with a tea sock.  If you are able to locate one, boil the tea with the water and then strain. Or seep using a tea ball.

    Add 1 cup Thai tea into the sock and placed over a pitcher.  Add sugar and condensed milk to the pitcher. Pour hot water into the sock.  Allow to seep for 15 mins.  The longer you seep the stronger the tea.

    The tea will be dark. Once stir thoroughly, the tea should be orange colored.

    Pour into ice mold and set aside.

    Next, start on the lychee popsicles.  Add the lychee including the syrup into a blender.  Add coconut milk, lime, and mint.

    Blend for a few minutes until the lychee is finely chopped.

    Pour into the molds.

    Freeze for 4 hours or until frozen.

    To remove from the molds, run under hot water for a few seconds. Gently pull from the mold.

    Hope you enjoy!
