In the hot summer months, popsicles are a perfect way to cool down while enjoying a delicious, fruity treat. Frozen, refreshing, mouth-friendly candy on a stick cannot get any better... or can it? Many popsicles you'll find in a supermarket have a lot of unwanted sugar or preservatives, but with a few ingredients you can make healthier popsicles with any flavor you can imagine.

In this gallery, I've included some great fruity popsicles for that extra treat after a meal or as a cool, practical dessert at a BBQ or picnic. I've also added some cocktail popsicles to add a kick to your dessert -- and even a popsicle-inspired ice cube trick to freshen up your drinks. Who says adults can't enjoy popsicles as much as kids can?
