waiting on the weekend: a popsicle recipe roundup

rhubarb pops

Last week Angela shared her success with Ikea’s popsicle molds — a steal of a deal at $2 each. Between that and the unending heat wave we’ve been having on the east coast, I’ve been craving popsicles somethin’ fierce and this weekend is shaping up to be the perfect time to whip up a batch or nine. Some dedicated reseplace has turned up enough of recipes to keep my molds moving in healthy rotation and many of these can be thrown together in a snap. Have a favorite formula? For the love of summer, share in comments! – Sarah C.

The Kitchn has summer simplified with this two-ingredient recipe for watermelon pops, but those who care to up the ante to adult might enjoy these boozy Campari citrus pops in orange or grapefruit.

For tea lovers, Seattle’s Fairmont Olympic Hotel makes a mean orange pekoe tea popsicle with simple syrup and orange juice.

Delish.com serves up 13 low-fat frozen dessert recipes, six of which are popsicles. While I’d like to try them all, I’ve got my eye on the banana pudding pop, raspberry chocolate chip frozen yogurt pop and the mocha ice pop, for my frozen coffee fix, naturally.

Put a spin on Megan B’s Greek yogurt ice cream with these Rhubarb and Raspberry Yogurt Pops from La Tartine Gourmande. The recipe calls for shot glasses and an oven, but the outcome looks worth the preparation!

Lick to your health with a hardworking formula. Blisstree shares a DIY Detox pop recipe or combine cherry, pomegranate and carrot juice for an anti-aging pop courtesy of The Doctors.

Planet Green encourages us to reduce waste by making homemade popsicles with this roundup of funky popsicle recipes from Self Magazine’s June issue. Chunky Pineapple-Chile pop, anyone?

I love this recipe list and can’t wait to try them. You can find two recipes we’ve made with great success here:

I’m off to make some popsicles now. We’re actually out. I better get to mixing and freezing.
Stay cool!

my popsicles always come out super-hard and icy. You think yogurt would help? Also– those shotglass popsicle molds are brilliant!
