It’s been just stupidly hot this summer. Normally I like to spend the warm months sweating over my ice cream maker, but this summer followed a big move and my ice cream maker didn’t make it to Europe with me. Somehow I actually got halfway through the summer before realizing I could just freeze all my ice cream and sorbet recipes as popsicles and enjoy them that way. Since figuring that out I’ve been freezing popsicles pretty much nonstop, and since I have an abiding obsession with delicious things that promise to prevent skin aging, I have some favorite popsicle recipes with skin-beautifying ingredients.
Popsicles are awesome to make at home because they don’t really take any skill at all. You can get fancy with them if you want to, but it’s completely unnecessary. Just shove some Greek yogurt and berries in there, or fill the molds with Diet Coke and you’ll have perfectly delightful popsicles in a few hours.
So check out these 12 easy popsicle recipes with skin-beautifying ingredients. Some of these recipes are legitimately healthful; some are just pretending to be healthful. But all of them contain ingredients that are of potential benefit to your skin.
