Herbal Ice Pops for Sick Kids

Herbal ice pops are a great variation on the infused ice cube theme, specifically helpful with the cranky toddler and kid crowd.

This is a great anti-dehydration remedy, as well as a tasty, fun treat that makes it easier to get herbs into sick kids.

  1. Make a strong infusion or decoction (instructions).
  2. Sweeten generously with raw honey for electrolytes, probiotics, and immune-boosting properties, as well as palatability.
  3. Add a taste of lemon or orange juice for vitamin C and electrolytes.
  4. Freeze and store as for the regular infused ice cubes, sticking toothpicks into each ice cube cell as a handle, or use silicone popsicle molds for extra fun.
