August is here, which means it’s hotter than heck outside, and that back-to-school is right around the corner. If you or your children are feeling the hazy summertime blues, making homemade popsicles can be a fun way to cool down and entertain every member of the household. 

Once you get going, the DIY popsicle recipes are endless. You can freeze anything from different fruits and smoothie mixes to cake batter and coffee. There are also healthy breakfast combinations like yogurt, frozen bananas, and chia seeds to something more adult like Champagne and strawberries (lots of recipes on Pinterest for this!).

Here are a few different recipes and tips to get your imagination going.
