With a solid month of summer left, it remains pretty steamy across most of the country. Chasing down the ice cream truck for relief will only make you sweatier, and the reward may be an artificially-flavored, unsettlingly-fluorescent frozen treat. When you make ice pops at home, the freezer handles most of the labor and you know exactly what ingredients are in them. They’re easy, refreshing and flavorful – plus no sweating required.
