15 Summer Popsicle Ideas

summer popsicle ideas

Whooboy, we’ve been having a scorcher of a spring here in Atlanta, and I’m betting that means a sweltering summer is on its way. Popsicles to the rescue!

The trouble with store-bought pops is that they’re often not super healthy. They’re usually wrapped in plastic and full of artificial colors, flavors, and GMO sugar. BOO! And health concerns aside, most of the pops in the freezer section at the grocery store are just boring.

This summer, why not whip up your own yummy pops with ingredients that you feel good about and interesting flavor combinations!

I put out a call on Twitter and Facebook for folks’ favorite pop recipes and included some of my own favorites to beef up this list. Ready to get poppin’? Click here to get started!

      That sounds delicious and gives me so many tea-related ideas! What about a juice-sweetened green tea pop? Like green tea with mango puree or something?
