Black Tea Pops with Blackberry Jam
Author: 
Recipe Type: Dessert
Serves: 10
 
A cool iced tea with lemon zest frozen into popsicle form. Fold in blackberry jam for a slightly sweet and fruity addition. Adapted from Lady and Pups
Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons (23 grams) of black tea leaves
  • 2½ cups (610 grams) of whole milk (or almond milk, which is what I used) + another ½ cup
  • 3 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 cup blackberry jam
  • ½ cup condensed milk
  • zest of one lemon
Instructions
  1. Place the 2½ cups of whole milk or almond milk in a large saucepan over medium heat with the tea leaves.
  2. Once the milk comes to a gently simmer, turn off the heat completely and let steep for one minute, then strain the leaves while pouring the mixture into another bowl.
  3. Whisk the cornstarch together with the ½ cup of milk until there are no lumps, then whisk it into the milk-tea until slightly thickened.
  4. Whisk in the blackberry jam, lemon milk, and the condensed milk until even.
  5. Add more condensed milk according to your preference of sweetness*
  6. *Keep in mind that once frozen, it tastes slightly less sweet because of the iciness, so it's okay if it's a bit on the sweet side as a warm mixture!
  7. Divide the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze until hard, and enjoy!
Notes
I only put a ½ cup of jam in half the recipe because I wasn't sure I'd like the taste and wanted to know how it'd taste without the jam, but it was so tasty I wish I had added it to all! Feel free to taste a little of the mixture with jam to see if it's your thang.
