Summer days are popsicle days, long, hot, but oh, so sweet. If you don’t have your eyes everywhere, your kids just might be helping themselves to a few too many frozen treats daily. Our version of damage control comes in the form of super-easy, homemade, all-natural freeze pops, aka Zipzicles. All you need to do is buy the plastics and fill them to your heart’s content. Get the kids involved, and let them mix and match their own flavors.

Tropical Popsicles

Two-Tone Popsicles

Recipe by Miriam Pascal

  1. Fill a popsicle bag halfway with Devash Raspberry Lemonade or any juice of your choice.
