These white tea and plum popsicles promote weight loss, and contribute huge amounts of immunity-boosting antioxidants thanks to the white tea, a fruity, delicate tea that has so many nutritional benefits, even more than green tea.
White Tea and Plum Popsicles
Why use white tea in a popsicle? Because it is so healthy.
White tea contains huge amounts of antioxidants, higher than green tea! Helps boost cardiovascular health, lower cholesterol, and promote weight loss. Plus, isn’t white tea so pretty, when not steeped? So rainbow in color.
Why Add Plums to Popsicles?
Because adding fruit to a homemade popsicle, adds fiber and a fruity flavor. Plus I only make these popsicles when I can find plums. Something about the sweet flavor of plums really elevates the brightness of white tea. I think clementines would also work.
These popsicles are so easy to make, just make the tea and use the liquid to blend up plums.
I also tossed citrus-tasting baobab into this recipe to increase the immunity power.

White Tea & Plum Popsicles
- Steep two cups of high quality white tea, let cool, and combine in a blender with all other ingredients except the plum slices. Stir those in at the last minute, and pour into molds. Freeze for four hours or more. I also sprinkled shredded coconut on top of the molds!
