Quick post for you today, since recently I have been doing a lot of recipe testing for an upcoming hush hush project I’m working on and working with Twinings so there’s only so much baked goodies and desserts my family can take. I decided to make a raspberry iced tea pops, as a refreshing treat for my family to demolish.
We make iced tea quite often in my house. Usually it’s just a simple everyday tea bag with sugar, lemon and ice kind of thing. Recently, there is a sh*t load of different flavoured teas in my cupboard which has tempted me to make a variety of recipes with different flavours. Previously I made this earl grey tea popcorn, and this lemon green tea posset, no berry iced tea pops is the latest tea related thing I have made.
What I love about the berry iced tea pops is that the tea I use to make it is hibiscus, which aside from green tea, is one of my favourites. Love hibiscus tea too? This hibiscus sorbet is another great way to cool down. Continue ReadingPin It
Britain is a nation of tea drinkers. Tea for breakfast, mid morning, evening. Every other so often the phrase do you want a cuppa or shall I stick the kettle on pops up and to be honest I can’t see what the huge admiration with tea is to be honest. Don’t get me wrong I love a good cup of tea with a homemade slice of cake but I’m not about to drink my way through six cups of everyday tea. 3 is the most I can manage and that is when it’s really cold and i’m not even gonna allow everyday tea to pass my lips everyday. Instead I put tea in baked good and desserts such as this lemon green tea posset.
I’m all about the green tea baby. Plain green tea, fruity green tea with honey or a flavoured syrup with a little sprinkle of lemon juice. Yup that’s what I be drinking. Fruit tea, chamomile, red bush I’m also accustomed to but green tea always wins. Continue ReadingPin It
Okay something else Peach Melba inspired for you. I just can’t help it. I go through phases where I can’t get enough of a particular thing. First it was citrus fruits and now it’s peaches. I’m peach/ Peach Melba crazy right about now. I’ve already made this Peach Melba Bellini Cake and way back when a Peach Melba breakfast parfait and now this crazy good, you have to make it now Peach Melba ice cream.
Peach Melba is one of my favourite flavour combos, peaches are in season and cheap and the marriage of sweet peaches, sharp raspberries and fragrant vanilla is just heavenly. I bring all of that heavenly goodness into an even more heavenly Peach Melba ice cream. Continue Reading
