No matter the season, I’m a summer girl at heart (maybe it’s because I’m from Texas), so when I heard that there would be a popsicle hour at the Well+Good Retreats, you’d better believe that I came early, stayed late—and of course asked for the recipe.

Unlike the artificially flavored ice pops that I grew up on in the ’90s, the ones I tried at the Avalon Palm Springs were made with actual fruit that had been fresh-squeezed using a Hurom Slow Juicer ($400). They basically tasted like a juice bar elixir on ice.

They basically tasted like a juice bar elixir on ice.

I did some asking around and it turns out that the same fruity recipe that was used to make mocktails by night also works for popsicles by day. That’s what we call a win/win in the wellness world. All you’ll need to spin them from delicious juice into a warm-weather treat is a popsicle mold. How cool is that?
