Lavender Lemon Popsicles

Do you remember the amazing the Merry Mag, a handmade holiday guide, that I was a part of this last Christmas? Well, I've got some great news for you, there's a Summer addition, Merry Mag Summer, and it might be even better.  If you are in need of some inspiration and ideas to give your home, parties, and self some handmade Summery touches, look no further.  Every page is bright and beautifully put together. So, grab a tall glass of lemonade, put your feet up and soak up all these lovely ideas. Once again, Melissa of The Sweet Escape is the master mind behind this amazing Summer edition.  And once again, I am flattered to be included with all these top notch bloggers. You are in for a treat friends.   

Now, how about a refreshing treat to these hot Summer days we have ahead of us?  Lemon and lavender are two flavors that are meant to be together.  The tart bright flavor of lemon goes so well with the earthy, mellowness of lavender.  I kept this recipe really easy peasy - just 2 ingredients needed.

Lemon Lavender Popsicles

1 12 oz. can of frozen lemonade concentrate
2 tbsp. of dried lavender
2 1/4 cups of water or 1 1/2 cans of water using the lemonade concentrate can

Pour all the ingredients into a small pan.  Bring to a boil and then turn off immediately.  Pour the mixture into a glass bowl, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge over night (or at least 12 hours).  Strain the mixture through a fine sieve, to remove the lavender.  Pour into popsicle molds and top each with a quarter round of a lemon slice and a sprinkling or lavender.  Freeze until solid.

Before putting them in, I painted the end of wooden popsicle stick a pretty lavender color, just for fun.
