Popsicles In Winter?

Don’t put those popsicle makers away yet!

Cold, Flu and Allergy season is here, which makes this the perfect time of year to make something icy cold to relieve a dry, scratchy, sore throat.

Out of necessity, I created this recipe because my own throat was feeling miserable.

I can’t express how comforting it was to suck on these frozen, spicy hot, ginger, lemon, honey, herb popsicles. 

Make them now and tuck them away in the freezer for yourself or a loved one, for all that could ail you in the months up ahead.

Wellness Popsicles Naturally

Wellness, these days, is more sought after than ever before.

Whether the risk of the common cold, contagious flu bugs, or that detested virus we are all (worldwide), forced to live with.

We need comfort in times of need.

Ancient Natural Remedies

Ancient remedies have always been what I have used ever since I was a teen, culture and curiosity.

Then through the years of raising my four children, and now during these weird times of health preservation, I’m after natural comfort when possible. 

Once this concoction of powerful fresh ingredients is whisked into a health mixture, it gets frozen into individual portions, which is why I like to use my popsicle molds. 

The juice and oil essence from the fresh citrus, fresh ginger (lost in the powdered stuff), fresh chilies and fresh herbs, will all be preserved when frozen.

Comfort Your Cold

Okay, so you got it; cold, flu or the virus, now what?

Comfort, that’s what!

When we feel sick, like, really sick, we want the strongest helpers we can get our hands on.

If you are reading this for a little TLC and comfort, for sure you are going to also want a hot bowl of Wellness Soup!

Wellness and Comfort Naturally Can Often Be Found In Your Kitchen

Comforting a cold or other sickness, is all about giving our body an internal hug, like, down deep inside, where everything is hurting. 

Don’t wait till you are sick.

Something strange happens to our thinking when we feel sick.

We dip into depression or simply feel despondent

It’s difficult to think logical or practical when those downward health situations hit us.

Be proactive, proactive and ready, make these now!

Proactive Health Popsicles

Gathering the ingredients will be quick and easy and very inexpensive.

Prepping the ingredients will take a little time, maybe 20-minutes, but once it’s done, everything goes in the freezer. 

A splash of booze is only optional, and the amount is about as little as OTC cough syrup, but it can help to relax the nervous system a little and subside coughing.

Maybe even help you get to sleep easier. 

Plants As Medicine

The health benefits of ginger are too vast to delve into but suffice it to say, they are many.

When infection or inflammation has set into our lungs, the bioactive component in fresh ginger will quick become an aid. 

The same goes for the high amounts of vitamin C and antioxidants found in fresh chili peppers. Their ability to create heat in the body will be a comfort when the chills from fever hit.

Let’s Make Comfort Wellness Popsicles Now – For Later

If you’re reading this now, during summer months, because you stumbled across this while enjoying my many other popsicles, it’s because you were meant to!

With fresh herbs growing in your garden or available at you roadside markets, now is a good time to gather and prepare natural helpers for later.

The steps are easy and you’ll have your freezer wisely stocked for those times when you can’t imagine spending time in your kitchen.

Step By Step Instructions For Making Wellness Popsicles

Step 1 – Squeeze the lemons, zest a little of the skins, because they have healing oil in them. Peel and grate the ginger and roughly chop the chili peppers.

Step 2 – Place the juice, ginger, peppers, sugar and a small amount of water in a saucepan and simmer, steep, strain.

Step 3 – Whisk the remaining ingredients together, pour into the popsicle mold, top on, sticks in and freeze for 4-hours or overnight.

Step 4 – Remove the popsicles from the mold, store in an airtight container and back into the freezer they go for when you need them.
