Stay Cool By Making Frozen Treats at Home

It’s hot out there! The hotter it is, the cooler a chilly treat seems, and making your own is not only cost-effective and fun for the family, it also allows you to control the nutritional value. Here are some oh-s0-cool-est popsicle and ice cream makers we could find. Enjoy!

1. This Zoku Quick Pop Maker ($50) not only makes Popsicles in as little as 7 minutes, you can customize each one to include layers of frozen yogurt, ice cream, or whole pieces of fruit.

2. Snow cones are a fast way to cool off, and this Hawaiian Shaved Ice and Snow Cone maker ($50) will do the trick in no time. It comes with an assortment of flavored syrups to pour over your iced treats–but if you want to go for a lower sugar content,  you could use your favorite juice instead.

3. Cuisinart is a go-to brand for great appliances, and their ice cream/frozen yogurt maker is top notch ($64). You can make up to 2 quarts of frozen treats in as little as 25 minutes, which is good if you have little ones clamoring for it to be ready.

4. Not interested in paying a pretty penny on a Popsicle maker? A good old-fashioned freezer mold works wonders to beat the heat, and this small one from Tovolo ($8) has rings on the base so they can wear their creations while they lick. And of course, using your own juice or yogurt can make them healthier than store-bought versions.
