Blueberry popsicles made from blueberries and yogurt.

It isn’t summer until you hear the chimes from the mobile ice cream truck rolling down your street. The excited cries of children running home to get money for the ice cream man is a hallmark of summer.

Still, with a teenager, I make popsicles every summer. With the same rocket molds. It’s sweetly reminiscent of the ice cream man days!

His favorite popsicle? Incredibly simple. Although I tried lots of different recipes — his favorite was simply… frozen orange juice. Truly. That’s it.

Fill the mold (or cups) with orange juice almost to the top. Freeze. 

But if your family is a bit more adventurous — as we are today — and when the sun is hotter than hot, and the ice cream truck hasn’t arrived — give these 10 Summer Popsicle Recipes a try!
