'popsicles' on Serious Eats

Rainbow Ice Cream Pops

Simply stack your colors in popsicle molds (I used the Orkin mold) or even paper cups, insert a stick, and let them freeze. This recipe couldn't be easier, and the finished product is a pleasurable frozen treat with a visual twist which makes it that much more delightful to eat. More

Watermelon & Parsley Pops

Watermelon is one of those great summer fruits that works perfectly in both sweet and savory dishes. Tossed with some mint and feta, it makes a bang up salad; it's also great sprinkled with a bit of salt or chile for a hot 'n sweet snack. And it's this versatility that makes these Watermelon & Parsley Pops from People's Pops such a great combination of summery flavors. More

Mango-Clove Popsicles

Mango, for me, is a quintessential summer flavor. Tart, sticky, and sweet, it is the fruity embodiment of the warmth and brightness of summer. Cloves, on the other hand, are darker, spicier, and deeply autumnal. The two together? Perfect for a warm summer evening in early March. More

Spiked and Spiced Grapefruit Paletas

This grapefruit-tequila paleta is particularly refreshing. If you want an extra kick, blend a bit of the chiles with the grapefruit base, or infuse the simple syrup with more chiles. Just like a margarita, these paletas have a seasoning on the top; I love both options and couldn't decide between them, so I'll leave the topping up to you. More

Corn Paletas

One of the best things about working in markets is the wonderful people you meet. There's a particularly cute couple that are regulars at the Hester Street Fair and they love these paletas; they would buy several at a time last year to take home so they could enjoy for the week. I just bought some wonderful bicolor corn from the farmers market to make some and wanted to dedicated this recipe to them! More

White Sangria Paletas

There are tons of different sangria recipes out there, and you should feel free to play with this recipe and make it your own. I love mango, so I add it to the fruit mix, but you might prefer strawberries or oranges. Just use this method as a guide to have fun with them! More

Roasted Apricot-Vanilla Paletas

I love stone fruit so much—especially apricots because they have a bit of tartness to them. I also love a little textural contrast in my sweets, and as I was making these I started thinking of those delicious Arab candies that are made with dried apricots and pistachios, so I thought—hey, maybe I should use that awesome combination. And it worked! More

Pineapple-Chile Paletas

There's no sign at the popsicle haven Las Paletas in Nashville, Tennessee, which makes finding it tricky, but it's worth the sugary reward. The popsicles here are known for their powerful burst of unusual flavors like eggnog and hibiscus but what captured my heart was the sweet and spicy ice pops like pineapple-chile and cucumber-chile. It's cooling refreshment meeting the sizzle of chiles. More

Cakespy: Homemade Pudding Pops

Growing up in the 1980s, I was pretty sure what made Jell-O Pudding Pops so delicious: every batch had been lovingly made by Bill Cosby, naturally. Now that I'm older and (arguably) wiser, I know that the secret behind that singular texture and flavor isn't Bill's secret family recipe. But what I didn't know was that these sweet summertime treats are, seriously, the easiest thing ever to make. More

Cakespy: A Midsummer Night's Creamsicles

This week marks Midsummer, that magical part of the year where the days are long and, according to Shakespeare, the nights are made of magic. And while Shakespeare is fine, creamsicles are divine—and so I present A Midsummer Night's Creamsicles, a homemade version of the classic treat which truly taste best when enjoyed in the summer months.
