For both kids and grownups, there’s no better summertime treat than an icy, cool popsicle — but you don’t have to settle for the sugar-filled, artificially-flavored pops offered at mini marts and ice cream trucks. The frozen treats are ridiculously easy to make at home if you have your own set of popsicle molds. Just blend together whatever fruit (or even veggies) you have on hand; pour the mixture into your molds; and put them in the freezer. Looking for some inspiration to make a more interesting batch of ice pops? Head over to Inhabitots , where you’ll find 30 homemade popsicle recipes featuring everything from strawberries to chocolate to avocado!
