The welcome surprise of avocado adds rich nutrients and a dreamy, silky texture.
Coconut Lime Chia Pudding Pops
Cool-down with a nutritious and creamy, summer treat. Don't have a popsicle mold? That's ok. Use a mason jar!

Triple-decker Citrus Popsicles
Serve a treat that's as pretty as it is tasty. The trick to this pop's tri-colored look is simple: freeze the first layer alone for 45 minutes, then add a second layer and freeze again, and finish with the third. Freeze the complete pop overnight to keep it solid even in the sun's hottest rays.
Red, White, and Blue Pops
Keep the layers distinct by fully freezing each one before adding the next.

Surprise summer company with these chilly eye-catching treats. Fill hollowed-out lime halves with a creamy mixture made from orange juice, vanilla yogurt, and strawberries.

Mandarin Orange Cream Pops
Treat guests to a cool treat at your next outdoor passed-plate party. This palate cleanser can be lightened by substituting a little orange sherbet for half the ice cream in the recipe.
Strawberry-Cream Fruit Pops
The rich secret ingredient in this smooth fruit pop is sour cream, but your guests will never know! Mix the cream with blended and strained strawberries then sweeten with a little sugar and a few teaspoons of lemon juice.

Red, White and Blue Ice Pops
Show your patriotism with these flag-inspired frozen treats. The flavor comes from cranberry juice, lemonade, and a blue sports drink.

Kulfi is a rich, thick ice cream beloved on the Indian subcontinent--and on Indian menus in the West. Natural food coloring gives them a greenish hue (otherwise they are pale brown). You can use any mold you like for these popsicles, but you'll get a different number of pops depending on the mold size.
Cucumber-Chili-Lime Ice Pops
These bright green pops may look innocent enough, but they've secretly got a little kick of spicy flavor in the form of ground chili powder.
