a popsicle recipe from the archives

It seemed like a good moment to bring this recipe back from one of the past editions of my newsletter, given the sweltering temperatures in the city this last week. These are so easy to make, and are a wonderful way to enjoy your chai when it's too hot to dream of sipping warm tea.

chai popsicles

1 cup raw cashews
2.5 cups water
3 heaping tbsp. chai
4 (or more) medjool dates (pitted)
3 tbsp. coconut butter
pinch of sea salt

Soak the cashews in fresh water for a few hours for overnight, then drain and rinse. Bring the 2.5 cups water to a simmer, add chai and simmer gently for 5-6 minutes, strain and allow to cool. Blend the tea infusion with all remaining ingredients in a blender, adjusting the sweetness with more dates (or even a spoonful of maple syrup), according to your preference. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, pour into popsicle molds and freeze.

for a little extra oomph, you could add:

to modern chai no. 1 - a spoonful of rosewater
to modern chai no. 2 - a shake of cacao powder
to modern chai no. 3 - a pinch of freshly grated ginger
to deeply rooted chai - a dash of golden magic

Be sure to stay hydrated and don't forget your sunscreen!
