Lemon Thyme Ice Pops #SundaySupper

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


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


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.


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
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.

  19. 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!

  20. 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!
