At this point every summer, we’re all just trying our best to stay cool, whether it’s in a pool, at the beach, or hunkered down indoors next to an air conditioner. To help relieve some of that heat and humidity, we’ve scanned Pinterest for some of the best popsicle and smoothie recipes out there. Taste testing was, of course, essential to this investigation. We give all of these an A+!
