Chill out with these frozen pops that totally rock! MORE+ LESS-

Admit it: You never outgrew your love of an icy-cold treat on a hot summer day. Best thing is, now you don't have to dig around in the bottom of the box trying to find that last banana or root beer pop. With these top pop recipes, every flavor’s a winner and every summer day’s another excuse to chill out.


1. Watermelon Mojito Cocktail Pops

Watermelon is arguably the dreamiest frozen pop ingredient there is, with perfect texture and a hugely refreshing amount of juice. Throw in a little rum, and life is mojito better!


2. Double Chocolate Swirl Pops

This swirled frozen treat will turn heads, especially when you spill that they're totally homemade. Luscious white chocolate and chocolate-chocolate (two very different things) are melded with cream and yogurt then frozen into pops. Yeah, you read that right.


3. Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Pops

An amazing upgrade for your summer treat schedule, and a gotta-make for cheesecake fans. Luscious cream cheese, dulce de leche, and a Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ crust. Brilliant!


4. Watermelon Freezer Pops

Beat the heat with these layered little pops that look like slices of watermelon. But since they're made with chocolate chip seeds, yogurt and perfectly flavored gelatin, they're more like slices of heaven.


5. Frozen Margarita Yogurt Pops

Crazy easy. As in, slice-lime-insert-stick-sprinkle-salt easy. Check out the recipe to see just how delish they turn out, and of course tell your friends you worked over a hot freezer all day long.


6. Long Island Iced Tea Fruit Pops

Does anyone really know what goes into a Long Island Iced Tea? Get your mixologist chops on and take the packs-a-punch summer classic to a new level with these boozy pops, with four liquors and no end of fun on the end of a stick.


7. Lemon Meringue Pie Pops

Remember the pudding pops Mom used to get? These are even better, with the fresh zing of lemon and the oooohhh-yeahhhhh of marshmallow crème. Plus crunchy crust for mouthfeel (that's foodiespeak for "good times”).


8. Raspberry Lemonade Pops


Ever wondered what summer was invented for? I think it might be as an excuse to make these. They're like sipping on raspberry lemonade, only on a stick and with a little creamy hit of yogurt on the back end. Now that's summer lovin'.


9. Layered Breakfast Smoothie Pops

Is there a better way to start the day than with a smoothie? Well, if it's 9am and you're already at 90+ degrees, we'd suggest one of these: frozen smoothie-liciousness, with good-for-you layers blending in berries, pineapple, and spinach. Yep, and you'll love it.


10. Salted Honey-Vanilla Frozen Yogurt Pops

Looking for a fantastic last course for a summer dinner party? Nothing’s more Avant-gourmet than serving up a frozen dessert with amazing taste contrasts like honey vs. salt and vanilla vs. lemon. Taste buds, start your engines!


11. Black and Tan Beer Pops

In the pub world, you need a fine-tuned touch with a tap to pour a perfect Black and Tan. These pops just require a whisk and a freezer. Come party time, you can raise a pint on a pop and toast this frozen perfection concoction.


12. Fro Yo Snack Hack

We saved the best for last —and by best, we mean the most ridiculously simple. Which makes it the very ultimate summer treat, because it gives you that much more time out of the kitchen. Insert stick. Freeze. Pop rock on.
