basil seeds drink on a stick...

Surprisingly, Popsicle was accidental invented by 11 year-old boy who was born in San Francisco. Since then, Popsicle has been the coolest frozen treat around for more than a century. I can see why. Here's a fun recipe and perfect treat to enjoy during the summer season.

Ingredients:
makes 4

- 100 g water
- 10 g basil seeds
- 150 g water
- 150 g elderflower syrup

Preparation:

1. Soak the seeds with the 100 g of water, set aside.
2. Bring water and syrup to a boil.
3. Add the syrup to the seeds. Stir well.
4. Pour the mixture into molds, freeze.

Okay I've been gone from home too long. What are these seeds called in Thai again?

I used to call them Med Look Odd, you know, the tadpole seeds. LOL.

When I was living in China there were a few cafes that sound drinks with Thai basil seeds in them. It was as though Thai basil seed drinks were the next bubble teas. I think in Southeast Asia the drinks with basil seeds are more traditional.

Basil seeds are used to add texture to drinks and desserts. The texture is like a jelly with tiny crunchy in center. They're flavorless. They need to be soaked in water first.

Wow, these look so refreshing I cannot wait to check them out for myself, but as its foggy and chilly in my part of SF, I'll be saving that for another day.

This looks so interesting, have never even heard of basil seeds! I'm assuming it tastes like basil? If so, this must be a very refreshing popsicle.
