It is a Holiday weekend. Lots of fun to be had. The heat of July and August are sure to be on the way… right? We actually spent the 4th bundled into sweatshirts to watch the fireworks. It was chilly down by the lake, but it was beautiful. There is just something magical in a small town festival. Parades, picnics, swimming in a lake and of course fireworks.Fireworks

One of the major attractions at these kind of small town celebrations are the ice cream trucks or snowcone trucks. They are a hit with my kids. One still has blue stained lips this morning. These frozen favorites along with my herb garden were the inspiration for today’s recipe. Lemon and Thyme, they are such a classic combination. In fact, if you wanted to skip the freezing you could have yourself a delightful chilled beverage. Either way works well, but for the kid in all of us let’s stick to the frozen treat.

Lemon Thyme Ice Pops

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2/3 cups Water
  • 2 Lemons (Juice from 2 and zest from 1)
  • 5 sprigs Thyme

Note

To help release your Popsicles from their molds, run them under warm water for just a minute. Then you should be able to pull them out with out a problem. If they stick, give them another run under the warm water.

Directions

Step 1
Into a non reactive pot, combine water and sugar.
Step 2
Heat on a medium heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Step 3
Add your freshly squeezed lemon juice, the zest of 1 lemon and your sprigs of time.
Step 4
mix thyme
Turn the temp down to low and allow the flavors to steep for 10 minutes. There is no need to boil the mixture.
Step 5
Remove the Thyme sprigs and let cool a bit before pouring into your molds. Freeze.

    I love the addition of thyme! One of my favorite herbs…and a terrific pairing with lemon!

    Just thinking about lemon and thyme together makes me feel cooler– and refreshed! How wonderful that you are able to pluck herbs right from your garden =)…P.s. Loved hearing about fireworks with your family by the lake – sounds lovely =)

      My herb garden has really gotten used this year. I am loving all the variety I planted. lol Thinking of more for next year. :)

    This may be the most perfect summer chillin’ recipe EVER! Combination of the fact that it is easier than one could hope for and versatile. Thank you!!

    What a great combo! I never thought to make a frozen treat out of it! Great idea!

    Oh my gosh, yes, why was it so chilly this year on the 4th? The day was fine, but we rode home from our friend’s lake house in the Jeep with the top down, and I was shivering on the way home. Literally shivering! haha.

    Lemon and thyme is one of my favorite flavor combos. What a cool, refreshing treat!

  10. 7-6-2014

    What a perfect treat to enjoy by our pool!

  11. 7-6-2014

    I really like thyme in baked goods! It pairs well with lemon too.

  12. 7-6-2014

    This totally sounds so refreshing. Especially since it’s 99 degrees right now.

  13. 7-6-2014

    Hey Shannon! I have made pops with Basil before, but not with Thyme. It’s a great idea and great way to sneak some herbs into a treat!

  14. 7-6-2014

    Nice and simple recipe. The thyme is a great addition.

  15. 7-7-2014

    I love the addition of herbs – makes the ice pops a little more grown up! I would be all over these, especially in this heat and humidity. Thanks!

  16. 7-7-2014

    Just came in from gardening, man could I go for one of those right now!!

  17. 7-7-2014

    Love this combination! I’ve not made ice-pops in a long time, but you’ve got me thinking this could be the cure to my hot summer blues. PS, I am very envious of a cold 4th of July – it’s 9 pm and 108 out right now!

  18. 7-8-2014

    These sounds so refreshing!

  19. 7-9-2014

    It’s so hot I could use one of these right about now! Love the lemon and thyme combo!

    Love the lemon + thyme! I’m growing lemon thyme, so I know this is just brilliant and SO delicious!
