These hibiscus and lime agua fresca popsicles or paletas like we call them at home, are a delicious and easy to make sweet summer treat that will help keep you hydrated.

hibiscus lime agua fresca

Rosa de Jamaica agua fresca or hibiscus iced tea was one of my favorite drinks growing up. It always brings back memories of warm summer days spent playing with my brothers and cousins outdoors.

For this hibiscus limeade popsicle recipe I decided to combine the flavor of hibiscus with the tangy and refreshing flavor of limeade and I just love how these turned out! I made these with Nestlé® Pure Life® water.

As the weather heats up and we spend more time outdoors it’s always important to stay hydrated. I always have Nestlé Pure Life water bottles at home so I can grab them anytime I go out and am excited about their new 35pk which gives you more water for the same prize.

These hibiscus limeade popsicles are so refreshing and delicious and it’s great to see the kids asking for popsicle after popsicles without me having to chase them down to have something to drink when we’re outside. I also feel great about using Nestle Pure Life water to make this as every drop in every bottle of Nestle Pure Life is filtered through a 12-step quality process and it always tastes grate because the water has been enhanced with a unique blend of minerals.

hibiscus limeade popsicles I got the new Nestle Pure Life 35pk at my local Walmart. The 35pk is such a great value because I’m getting 3 more bottles for the same price as the old 32 pack! Be on the lookout for this refreshed packaging from Nestle this upcoming May at a store near you! You can find Nestle products at Walmart online, but make sure to visit the store for the 35 pk! If the 35-pack of Nestle Pure Life is not available in your local Walmart, please ask a store manager about getting the product in your area.

    I have not tried having hibiscus in anything. I am curious now of the taste. I guess I have to get over the mindset that Hibiscus are just flowers and are not eaten. 🙂

  15. Chrishelle Ebner

    I have never make my own popsicles. My family would love to try a different combination like hibiscus. They sound really refreshing and perfect for the summer months.
