Aloe & Elderflower Popsicles

Nothing says ‘spring’ quite like eyepopping bright flowers and warmer days. These delicious, psychedelic popsicles are infused with local African superfood (and arguably nature’s number one top beauty food) Aloe Vera. They pack a juicy, guilt-free tang and will need no introduction at your next soiree. Mmm…Happy Spring.


Makes 10


*3 cups filtered water

*1 cup of juiced organic green apples

*2 juiced lemons

*2 tablespoons Aloe juice

*1 tablespoon elderflower cordial

*Selection of various edible flowers


1. Place petals inside the popsicle moulds. Layer them on top of each other so they’re spacious and not compacted.

2. Mix the filtered water, juiced apple and lemon, aloe and elderflower cordial in a large jug and stir well to combine. Do a taste test and if you’d like it slightly sweeter, add some organic coconut nectar or raw local honey.

3. Gently pour the liquid mixture into the popsicle moulds trying not to dislodge the petals too much. Insert popsicle sticks and place in the freezer until frozen solid. 4. To remove from the moulds gently place bottom of moulds in warm water until the popsicles pull free.
