Warm cookies and hot chocolate are reserved for those cold, winter nights, but summer is all about frosty, ice-cold treats. From healthy nice creams to coconut smoothie bowls, there’s no shortage of deliciously refreshing desserts.

But one category screams summer just a little bit louder than the rest: popsicles.

“There’s something about a popsicle that brings you back to your childhood days, running around and playing all day and getting rewarded with a delicious—and often messy—popsicle,” says Daphne Cheng, executive chef at New York City’s LadyBird and Mother of Pearl.

And when a popsicle doesn’t just taste good, but also cools you down and packs a superfood punch? Genius.

Scroll down to see Daphne Cheng’s easy and refreshing homemade popsicle recipe to cool you down on even the hottest of days.
