Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...Tell Me More
Today’s delicious recipe is offered up by the team at Pique Tea. I’ve become a big fan (and proud affiliate) of Pique Tea’s products because of their superior antioxidant value. Thanks to their team for an excellent recipe we’ll all be able to enjoy with guests and family. (And don’t miss the special deal they’re giving MDA readers….)
Summer wouldn’t be summer without popsicles! These popsicles will make the perfect treat for when you’re feeling hot and bothered, and are filled with nutrients to help you look and feel your best. (They are also a fab way to use up any overripe strawberries you might have!)
We’re fairly sure there’s nothing better than a pretty popsicle that’s yummy AND healthy, so we’ve paired Primal Kitchen®’s Collagen Peptides with Pique Tea’s Hibiscus Beauty Elixir for that extra kick. Hibiscus is a antioxidant powerhouse that’s not only delicious, but also boasts skin-enhancing properties.
Strawberries offer antioxidant power in their own right, helping reduce inflammation and fight free radicals. The addition of Collagen Peptides “seals and heals” your gut lining, repairs damaged cell walls and offers essential with amino acids.
Each Pique Tea sachet contains up to 12x the antioxidants (third-party verified) than regular teas and is the first of its kind to be Triple Toxin Screened for pesticides, heavy metals, and toxic mold. Mark’s Daily Apple’s fans get a special deal: Get up to 2 FREE cartons here!
Time in the Kitchen: 10 minutes, plus a few hours to freeze popsicles
Servings: 6 popsicles, depending on size of popsicle mold
First, start by boiling 2 cups of water, then remove from heat. Next, slowly sprinkle in coconut sugar (optional), Pique’s Hibiscus Beauty Elixir and Primal Kitchen’s Unflavored Collagen Peptides until completely smooth.
Add the chopped strawberries into the mold, fill the mold with the liquid mixture, and place popsicles in freezer for 6 hours to overnight, and you’re done!
Please note that sweetening up the popsicles with coconut sugar is optional. So is adding Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides, but the collagen doesn’t affect the flavor of the popsicles, so why not add it in? Collagen turns these popsicles into a nourishing and wholesome summer treat.
