LEMONADE-MINT- HONEY POPSICLE

LEMONADE MINT HONEY POPSICLE
Cleaning out a kitchen drawer, I found the Popsicle molds I used when my kids were little.  I was about to put them into the Goodwill Pile, when I thought "who does not love cold Popsicle on a hot summer day"?  With a huge patch of mint and a craving for lemonade, I combined them into a delicious treat. 
HONEY: buy local, anything grown in your area supports your immune system. For centuries people have used honey for its healing properties.
MINT: is best known for its soothing the digestive tract.  But it also helps stimulate appetite. It is the "happy" herb helping with fatigue and depression as well.
LEMONS: There are many health benefits of lemons that have been known for centuries. The two biggest are lemons’ strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers and their use as a weight loss aid because lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. Lemons contain many substances--notably citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene--that promote immunity and fight infection.
