8 Popsicles Guaranteed to Keep You Cool

As the summer heats up, there is no better way to cool off than with a refreshing popsicle. Store-bought popsicles are filled with sugars and artificial flavoring; these recipes are easy to make and don’t contain any artificial ingredients. Go ahead—cool down!

1. Blueberry Salted Caramel

Blueberry and caramel? Yes, please! These two flavors are so different, but they work well together.

2. Bourbon Tea Lemonade with Peaches 

Refreshing frozen lemonade is the perfect way to cool off. The peach slices add a little extra sweetness, which is perfect after a long, hot day. 

3. Passion Tea Lemonade

Calling all Starbucks addicts. Yes, your favorite summer drink is now in popsicle form, and the recipe is super easy. Starbucks is now closer than ever—just check the freezer!

4. Pop Rocks

Who says you can’t be a kid again? These popsicles will bring back a few childhood memories. They are sure to leave your taste buds tingling, too. 

5. Avocado

Avocados provide great health benefits with every serving. (And who isn’t obsessed with avocados?) These popsicles are creamy and packed with fiber. 

6. PB&J

You might be tempted to substitute this popsicle for lunch this summer. 

7. Strawberry Orange

This recipe brings together a blend of sweet summery fruits. The almond breeze is an added touch that makes for a rich, creamy popsicle. 

8. Chocolate Cheesecake

Nothing is worse than melted chocolate. These popsicles give you that chocolate taste you are looking for without all the melted mess. Plus, the cheesecake element takes it to a whole other level.
