This week is going to be a hot one (at least most of the week, anyway — weather, what is going on with you?) and we can only imagine what is in store for the next few months. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to beat the heat: For example, you could jump into a swimming pool, drink all the rosé, stick your head into the freezer, or make a ton of ice pops — and eat them.
We suggest trying all of those methods, and we can help with the latter. We found these bright and colorful silicone ice pop molds, which happen to be on super sale (half off!) on Amazon right now. Plus, we have a bunch of refreshing recipes you can make.
Each one holds 3.4 fluid ounces (read: the perfect amount for a frozen treat). You simply fill up each mold (but not all the way — remember liquid expands when it freezes and you don't want to make a mess in the freezer!), put the lid on, and slide them into the freezer. Note: Some reviewers mention they've had problems with leaks before the liquid freezes, while others said it wasn't an issue.
Buy them on Amazon: Silicone Popsicle Molds, $11.50 for eight
I've actually used pop molds that are similar (by another brand) and I can't say enough good things about them. I love how easy they are to fill and how easy they are to eat out of. The pop literally pops right up and the flexibility of the mold helps to get the treat out as you eat it. The fun colors don't hurt either.
Stay cool, everyone!
