    How to Make Your Own Elderberry Popsicles

    How to Make Your Own Elderberry Popsicles

    If you have been with us for a while, you might remember we used to make popsicles for our local customers and they were a fan favorite! For those of you who are new or haven’t been with us for as long, our popsicles served as a treat to make those hot summer days a little bit cooler. We get asked for the popsicles a lot, but have not found a way to make them shippable…. yet ;)

    We know our customers are always looking for ways to support their immune system and keep their families healthy! We thought it would be fun to give you some recipes over the next few blogs as a way to bring a little fun to your daily dose of Elderberry Syrup! Whether that’s through popsicles, drinks, smoothies, and so on, we want you to be fully confident that you are staying healthy while being able to use our syrup in different ways. 

    We have an AWESOME popsicle recipe for you to make your own popsicles with our Elderberry Syrup at home! 

    Why Popsicles? We say, why not popsicles?

    They’re a delicious treat everyone loves, ESPECIALLY kids! It’s a bonus that this recipe is a healthy one! 

    5 items to make a tasty popsicle:

    • 4 Tablespoons of The Elderberry Co. Syrup
    • 2 Tablespoons of Our local raw honey if you would like it a little more sweet
    • 1 cup of Organic Apple Juice (100%)
    • ½ cup of organic Cranberry juice (100%)
    • 1 cup of coconut water
    • Juice of 1 lemon

    Directions-

    1. Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher (Makes it easier to pour) and stir well.
    2. Pour the mixture into Popsicle Molds and freeze for at least 6 hours until completely frozen. We’ve included a link to a BPA free silicone Popsicle mold from Amazon that we love! 
    3. If you are using molds, you may run warm water over the molds for 15 seconds once they are frozen. This will help to release the ice pop.
    4. Enjoy your tasty Elderberry Popsicle.

    Aronia Berries? Never Heard of Them...

    Aronia Berries? Never Heard of Them...

    What sets us apart from other Elderberry Syrup brands?

    This is a question we receive on a regular basis.  Now, I know we are biased, but there are several significant ways our Elderberry Syrup is above and beyond other brands out there...free shipping, no added sugar or preservatives, brewed fresh weekly and... (drum roll, please) aronia berries! Usually when I say “aronia berries”, people look at me like I have ten heads. Well, their common name is “chokeberry” and they are AMAZING.

    When I first started making syrup in my home kitchen, I only used elderberries in the recipe. I didn’t even know aronia berries existed! Then a sweet older couple at our Farmer’s Market introduced them to me and asked me to make a batch using fresh ones from their farm. I eagerly went home and researched aronia berries. Once I learned all about the benefits, there was no way I couldn’t include them in my recipe! They enhanced the flavor, made our syrup a brighter pink and added so much strength in terms of immune support!

    Aronia berries are a small, round fruit found in North America. They contain high levels of antioxidants which makes it one of the highest antioxidant content of any fruit (even elderberries)! When it comes to antioxidants, studies have shown they help reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, inflammation, bacterial infections and many others. These berries also contain tons of vitamins and minerals, including zinc, magnesium, iron and vitamins C, B and K. 

    If you are looking for ways to add aronia berries into your daily routine other than our elderberry syrup, here are some helpful ideas! They can be eaten fresh or as a dried snack, make a refreshing summer smoothie, easily add them into some sweet desserts, make a delicious jam, and they can also be found in some teas, coffee and even wine! 

    Let’s break down the health benefits a little bit more here! As always, we recommend checking with your care provider when beginning any health regimen.

    • Offer overall improvement of the circulatory, respiratory, and digestive  systems
    • Help combat the growth of certain cancers
    • Support the immune system and help fight diseases and infection
