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.

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