Pick up nearly any box of ice pops in the supermarket and you’ll find more ingredients on the label than in your favorite face cream. That’s not right, people! There’s no reason frozen treats need be much more than fruit, juice, and a little added honey or agave for extra sweetness if need be. The good news is, making your own is so easy. I recently experimented with watermelon pops that were a refreshing, colorful treat full of  vitamin C, vitamin A, and the antioxidant lycopene. Plus, with its high water content, watermelon is great for hydrating on hot summer days.
