When it comes to summer snacks, ice-pops are the ultimate crowdpleaser. It doesn’t matter if you’re five or 95—it’s hard to say no to the bright frozen treat. On a brutally hot day, getting your hands on one provides the same instant relief as jumping head-first into the deep end.

While the classic ones from your childhood are, alas, loaded with sugar, the two DIY versions provided here are packed with benefits instead—and yes, they’ll still be tasty enough for all ages to find delish. One recipe calls for matcha, known to boost metabolism and is jam-packed with antioxidants. The other stars turmeric, the wellness world’s fave inflammation-fighting spice.

Before you start whipping ’em up, Well+Good’s video producer, who developed this recipe, offers up this pro tip: “Use coconut oil spray on the pop mold before filling and freezing the ice-pops,” she says. “It helps un-lodge them easier.”
