Few summer treats are as iconic as the ice pop. Hot days, a rainbow of colors dripping down your arm: It's pure bliss. And it happens to be bliss that you can easily create in your own kitchen, especially if you're hesitant to bring home store-bought varieties that may have artificial colors and flavors. Unlike ice cream, which takes more precision to perfect, ice pops (Popsicle is a trademark we try to avoid using generically) are relatively straightforward to improvise depending on what you have. The bar to entry is pretty low, if you invest in an inexpensive set of plastic molds or just roll with paper cups and wooden craft sticks.
