Homemade Freezer Pops For the Ultimate Summer Refresher

We’ve got just the antidote to the summer heat that’s been gripping the nation for weeks: popsicle therapy! It’s a quick and easy fix for when the thermometer stays above 100° and winter feels far, far away.

Sure, you can get store-bought popsicles, but where’s the fun in that? Plus, if you’ve got kids or grandkids at home, it’s a great way to get creative and have a cooking project that doesn’t heat up the kitchen even more than it already is. Your options for ingredients are endless, especially with the bounty of fresh fruit available in summer. Below you’ll find a kid-friendly recipe and another for a frozen “adult beverage,” but you can also experiment with the mixture that you like best. We’ve included a link for the supplies for freezer pops, but these can all be made in reusable silicone or plastic molds. Here’s to cooler weather in the near future!
