When the temperatures rise, there's no snack more satisfying than a popsicle. From backyard barbecues to hanging by the pool, there's really nothing better. And while there's no shortage of grocery store options, they're often laden with sugar and dyes or, if they're healthy they're prohibitively expensive. Your best bet? Adding a popsicle mold to your kitchen gadget arsenal.
When you control the ingredients, popsicles can go from an occasional treat to part of the daily routine. Breakfast smoothies, lunchtime yogurt, even baby purees can be frozen and served up as a pop. (Hello, fun mom status!) They're also an amazing tool to have on hand for teething babies or to make Pedialyte popsicles on those not-so-fun days. (Pregnant and breastfeeding mamas, you'll appreciate them too!) And I'm not here to tell you what to do, but just so you know, margaritas also make amazing adult-only popsicles.
We've rounded up some of our favorite popsicle molds that are easy to use and keep messes to a minimum. From baby-friendly sets to the perfect kit for starting your own popsicle stand, your summer just got much tastier!
