Prep Time: 5
Steep Time: 30
Chill Time: 6 hours or overnight
- 2 cans coconut milk (27.32 ounces) – full fat
- 4 sachets (bags) of Masala Chai Organic Black Tea or 6 teaspoons loose leaf tea
- 2 tablespoons of honey, maple syrup or sugar alternative of choice (adjust for desired sweetness)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon dried ground cinnamon (or 1 whole cinnamon stick)
- Popsicle (ice pop) molds
Place 2 cans of coconut milk in a saucepan and bring to a light simmer. Add honey or sweetener or sugar free alternative of choice to the coconut milk. Next, add the vanilla and ground cinnamon or whole cinnamon stick in the hot coconut milk and stir. Place tea sachet (bags) or loose leaf directly into the hot and steamy coconut milk. Turn off the heat and allow the tea to steep for 30 minutes. Taste test and add more sweetener of choice to get to your desired sweetness level.
Gently squeeze the tea bags and remove and discard. It’s normal for the heated coconut to form a skin on the top. No worries. Next, strain the chai milk tea through a strainer to remove the skin that may have formed and/or any chai loose leaf tea. Allow to cool.
Pour the prepared chai milk tea into the popsicle molds. You should have enough for 8 standard popsicles. If you only have 6 popsicle molds, the leftover chai milk tea is fabulous as a creamer for your iced tea, coffee, or any delicious cocktail or mocktail.
Add the covers to your popsicle molds, sticks and freeze for at least 6 hours of overnight. If you are using homemade popsicles with dixie cups and wooden sticks, be sure to gently cover with aluminum foil and then poke the wooden stick through the aluminum foil to hold the stick in the upright position.
Chai Milk Tea Popsicles can be stored in the freezer for up to 6 to 8 months if you remove them from the popsicles molds and store them in a freezer safe sealed baggie.
The best way to remove popsicles from the mold is to gently run the bottom of the molds under hot water for just 10 seconds at a time or until they gently release.
Feel free to substitute maple syrup, sugar, or sugar alternative of choice and adjust to your preferred sweetness level.
We used full fat canned coconut milk to obtain a super creamy dairy free treat. However, you can also use whole milk, or nut milk of choice. Please Note: The lower the fat level, the more icy and less creamy the popsicle will be.
