This is perfect popsicle weather.

With the temperatures crawling into the high 80s, now is the time to sit barefoot on your front lawn with popsicle juice dripping down your chin. We have some delicious options in the store from Mom & Pops All Natural Frozen Pops. Come and enjoy strawberry lemonade, watermelon agave, “orange-you-dreamy” creamsicle, creamy lime or coconut. These popsicles are locally made with love using high quality, organic ingredients.

If you’re feeling adventurous, consider making your own popsicles. It’s a fast treat that you can keep stocked in your freezer for summer days. If you have little ones, making your own popsicles can be a fun afternoon activity and you can rest easy knowing that there aren’t any strange dyes or corn syrup going into their treats.

We found this recipe and loved that it only calls for three ingredients. You’ll need popsicle molds to make these, or you can make them in ice-cube trays with toothpicks for bite-sized treats.

We have some local strawberries at the store, which will make for the perfect popsicle. This recipe calls for honey, but feel free to substitute it with agave or any sweetener you’d prefer. Go ahead, make yourself a popsicle and enjoy this amazing weather. Happy eating!
