THIS JUST IN- Homemade popsicles are the coolest thing right now (no pun intended). But really, you will be the coolest parent/host/friend/person in the world when you offer up these sweet frozen treats. And psst, we included a couple adult-only recipes too! If you’re making them for a party be sure to prepare them the night before, otherwise I suggest having them in the freezer at ALL times for emergency refreshments! Summer goal: To stay cool as a cucumber.
