You can easily whip up satisfying frozen treats in your Dallas apartment using the following simple recipes. Why not try one or more of these recipes the next time you’re craving something that will cool you on the inside as well as the outside! All you need are some popsicle molds, popsicle sticks, and a blender.

1. Frozen Yogurt Pops

To make frozen yogurt pops, you don’t need any special ingredients, just popsicle sticks, which you can buy online. Invest in a six-pack of single-serve yogurt containers. Opt for those with straight containers versus those with containers that are slimmer at the bottom than at the top. Then, all you do is insert one popsicle stick in the center of each container. You don’t even have to remove the paper lids! Freeze overnight and enjoy one at a time.

2. Smoothie Pops

Another really simple DIY frozen treat recipe uses premade smoothies. To make these, buy a bottle or two of premade smoothies from your grocery store. Pour the smoothie into your popsicle molds. Insert the popsicle sticks as directed by the manufacturer and freeze overnight. The next day, you’ll have healthy and delicious smoothie pops to enjoy as you wish!

3. Kool Pops

Another fast and simple DIY frozen treat can be made with Kool-Aid. Mix up a batch of Kool-Aid according to the package instructions. Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds. Insert the popsicle sticks and freeze overnight. The next day, you can enjoy your Kool pops and beat the summer heat. These frozen treats are especially appreciated by kids. If you have nieces or nephews coming to visit your apartment home, whip up a batch of these the day before.

4. Milkshake Pop

Use your blender to mix up a batch of chocolate delight to make milkshake pops. Just add some ice cream, milk, and chocolate syrup to your blender. Blend on high for a couple of minutes. Pour the chocolatey mixture into your popsicle molds. Insert the popsicle sticks and freeze overnight.
