Chai Icy Poles
50g Grounded Pleasures Chai
20g Grounded Pleasures Panela Sugar or honey
1 tsp Grounded Pleasures Vanilla Extract
90g white chocolate, for decoration (optional)
In a medium saucepan place all ingredients except the white chocolate. Gently whisk over a low to medium heat until the chai and sugar has dissolved and the mixture has warmed.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Pour the chai mixture into an icy pole mould that has the capacity for 10 icy poles (approximately 70 ml each). Leave a little room at the top of each, as the Chai mixture will expand a little as it freezes and the popsicle still will also make the mixture rise a little.
If your mould has a cover, place it on and stick one food safe wooden popsicle stick into each. If your mould doesn't have a cover, you can hold the sticks in place by covering the top with plastic wrap or similar.
Place in the freezer and leave overnight to completely freeze.
Once frozen leave the mould out of the freezer for a few minutes, then the chai icy poles can be removed as you want to eat them, or they can all be removed and wrapped in plastic wrap or similar and put back into the freezer so you don't have the ice pole mould taking up freezer space.
If desired, once you want to eat the Chai icy poles melt the white chocolate either in in the microwave or over a double boiler on the stove and drizzle some of the melted white chocolate over each icy pole. This can be done using a piping bag or drizzling the chocolate over with a spoon or similar.
