I know what your thinking, two earl grey recipes in a row??? I know, I know, I’m sorry I promise this is the last one, well for now…
I love, LOVE earl grey tea! It’s my very favourite tea and I have been experimenting with infusing milk and cream and I am working on a cocktails with earl grey syrup. Once I have the perfect cocktail I will share, but lets talk about these popsicles.
I love them! They are sweet and packed with caramel flavour but also have a luscious earl grey flavour.
These are more labour intensive than my last popsicle recipe, you need to cook the mixture. But they are so worth it!! Creamy, rich sweet pops are exactly what I want as the weather cools down. If there was a perfect winter popsicle this would be it! The earl grey flavour reminds me of a warm cup of tea and adds such comfort.These popsicles are the perfect way to finish a day and the perfect end to my 30th birthday.
I feel very special and humbled to have such amazing people around me, people who truly support me and encourage me to chase my dreams. Exactly the kind of people everyone should have around them. I hope you are surround by those people. If you aren’t, if there is someone who brings you down, please please remove yourself from their life and unburden yourself. I know you feel like you need to be there for them or you have been friends for X amount of years but if they aren’t supporting you they aren’t the friend you need. You deserve to be surrounded by people who love you and want the absolute best for you. Do not accept anything less than that.
