2 Frozen Popsicles: Summers are all about licking frozen treats. And, kids love to relish colourful popsicles. Make summers more enjoyable and refreshing for them by giving them a treat of frozen popsicle. Here we have described fruit popsicle because summer is the season of juicy and sweet fruits.

- Once, you get the desired consistency, pour the batter into a cake tin and bake.
