avocado popsicles via A Cup of Jo

On a sticky summer afternoon there aren’t many things that are more refreshing than a fruity, ice-cold popsicle. These iconic treats totally embody summertime fun.

In our house we always have apple popsicles ready to go for when our bottomless pit of a daughter wants a little treat. We just pour apple juice into an empty ice tray, cover it with tin foil and make tiny slices that we can slide mini-popsicle sticks from our local craft store into. Quick, easy, cheap and healthy, she even requests these mini-pops for dessert!

But while they are perfectly acceptable to a five year old, mommy needs a little something more to satisfy her craving (ok, a lot more).

I saw an awesome popsicle post over on A Cup of Jo a few weeks ago and I’ve been drooling at the thought of these yummies ever since. While I haven’t had the chance to try them out myself yet, I’ve been collecting mouth-watering popsicle recipes that I need to try. Here are a few:

These big girl popsicles would actually be great to serve at a summertime party. The Tomkat Studio has some super cute (and free!) printables on their site that you can dress your pops up a with if you’re feeling fancy.

If you have any delicious popsicle recipes, please share! I’m on the hunt for good ones!
