I was happily boozing-cruising through life. But then my dog had to be hospitalized... and there is nothing in life I care about more than my little furball, so it was just bad. I was despondent.

It's summer, and you're hot. So instead of making froyo or soft-serve part of your nightly routine, why not make your own, healthier frozen treats? These five popsicle recipes will make your mouth water, literally and figuratively. Fresh ingredients like avocado, kale and herbs throw a grown-up twist on the popsicle craze, and a little bit of fruit, coconut, and agave trick you into believing they're more sinful than they actually are.
