For a few generations now, frozen Popsicles have been a favorite summertime treat. 

Today’s talented and healthy-minded chefs have magically transformed those frozen artificially flavored and colored Popsicles into delectable frozen ices with a gourmet flair and with a host of healthy ingredients. 

Gourmet Popsicle Flavors



Flavors like strawberry-balsamic, Coconut almond, blackberry yogurt, and blueberry lemon are concocted from pureed fruits and ingredients like honey, yogurt, coconut milk, balsamic vinegar, and spices.
