When I was a little kid, I remember being enthralled by the fluorescent colors my tongue would turn after sucking on ice pops. My friends and I would compare tongues to see who sported the brightest colors.
As an adult, I know those artificial colors were to blame, and I have no interest in reliving those colorful memories. But who wants to give up on the fun of enjoying an ice-cold freezer pop when temperatures soar?
Meet DeeBee’s Organics Gelato Pops. Creamy and smooth like gelato but fruity and refreshing like an ice pop, DeeBee’s are the best of both worlds.
These nondairy freezer treats have no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives and are plant based and gluten free. The creaminess comes courtesy of organic coconut milk. Sweetened with organic grape juices and fruit purées, there’s no added sugar. And at only 35 calories a pop, they’re a guilt-free indulgence.
On a recent summer afternoon, my husband and I relived our youth by strolling around outside insouciantly enjoying our ice pops. We sampled the three available flavors: Pineapple, Mango, and Lime.
The refreshing tropical tastes of the fruits shined through. Our favorite: mango. It was like eating slices of the real thing. But better. None of the pops tasted diluted or were too icy.
DeeBee’s Organics Gelato Pops come shelf stable. Just pop the BPA-free, single-serve pouches in the freezer for when you need them.
One (20-pop) package is $14.99.
