Who needs air conditioning when you have popsicles, right? Okay, well truthfully popsicles don’t make a great substitute for AC on particularly sweltering days, but the frozen treats do have the added benefit of being entirely portable and huge on flavour. Because as cooling as AC can be, you can’t eat it, which definitely gives popsicles a lot of points, especially when you have delicious popsicle recipes on hand.
The classic summertime treat are something you buy at the store for most folks, but they can actually be made at home with the right tools. Far more simple than one would assume to create, popsicles can come in many styles and flavours, giving you tons of room for innovation.
So this summer, don’t beat the heat with a store-bought popsicle. Make your own with fresh ingredients and interesting flavours and the seven popsicle recipes below will help you get started.
