RECIPE RADAR | Pretty Popsicles

What's Summer without popsicles? Am I right?

I've got homemade popsicles on the brain, people...
to the point of almost being completely distracted by the variety of combinations I can't wait to try!

Right now I'm full-focused on collecting some fun popsicle molds to create some masterpieces.
Again, almost to the point of obsession.
Stopping at every store I THINK might carry popsicle molds...
Searching online...
Contemplating scouring thrift stores for some vintage Tupperware molds...
Yeah.
Obsessed.

While I continue my obsession search...
here are a few delightful popsicles I've been inspired by.
They are so beautiful...I'm almost certain you'll be left with a "pretty popsicle brain freeze"!

What' even better?
Not only are they lovely to look at...
the flavor combinations sound refreshing and they aren't loaded with added sugars and junk!

Hmmm...
Watermelon + Jalapeño popsicles??
I'm not sure.
What do you think? 
Have you ever tried them?
Maybe the person that came up with the recipe had the munchies? 
Note the name of the website/source I found them from! Ha!!

PLEASE share your favorite popsicle recipes with me!
I'd love to know what you are creating in your kitchen this Summer!

KEEPiNG iT REAL
I'm a little scared to try the Watermelon + Jalapeño combination? *blushing*

To be honest...
I've already been experimenting with making some healthy popsicles.
I created some festive red, white and blue popsicles for my family last week.
I used unsweetened Coconut Milk, Strawberries and Blueberries.
They were beautiful...
but bland.
In fact, as quoted by my middle daughter Emalyn...
"The fruit was delish but the coconut milk needed to be sweetened up a bit."

By the way...
I would've taken photos of the experimental popsicles...
BUT...
when I went to get them out of the freezer, they were all gone.
Guess they weren't all that bad! *wink*

These finds you've shared here look fabulous! Must choose a couple to try (hopefully won't turn out bland). :-)
