Southerners love their sweet tea, although I've never been a huge fan. These ice pops have a good balance of sweet-tart, but if you're a sweet tea lover, go ahead and add more sugar. Once you taste fresh lime in tea, you may never go back to lemon (I haven't).

  • Remove tea bags, add sugar, and stir in lime juice. Adjust the sweetness to suit your taste and cool mixture to room temperature.

  • Drop a lime slice into each ice pop mold. Pour in mixture, leaving about 1/4 inch space at the top. Place the sticks or tops in and freeze until solid, 3 to 4 hours.

  • Run some warm water over the molds to help loosen the ice pops.

Cook's Note:

If you want to trim calories, sugar substitutes such as Truvia(R) or Splenda(R) are fine in this recipe. If you have concerns about caffeine, decaf tea bags work well, too.
