Elderberry has a wide variety of uses: antioxidant, lowers cholesterol, strengthens the immune system, improves heart health. fights coughs, colds, flu and bacterial and viral infections. It’s one powerful berry!
Over at One Organic Mama’s home, she had a sick family. Her kids were feeling miserable. She remembered some people raving about elderberries and wanted to see if they’d help her family.
Instead of making her own elderberry concentrate, she went to the grocery store and bought a commercial jar of elderberry concentrate. It’s not organic and contains fruit juices. But One Organic Mama is very upfront about being a “fake crunchy.” And this was going to be a trial recipe. So I give her credit for both honesty and creativity.
She took the elderberry concentrate and created an Ice Pop recipe. In addition to elderberry concentrate, the recipe includes a variety of fresh fruit and honey. The recipe looks simple and the directions are very clear. Based on the picture of her two kids enjoying their elderberry ice pops, they’re tasty too:) The only change I would suggest is to make a natural elderberry concentrate.
