There is no summer treat more unusually tasty than apricot and pistachio ice pops. Contrary to typical popsicles, these treats prove that a healthy treat can be just as fulfilling as a traditional one.

Found among a collection of 50 inventive frozen treats, Apricot and Pistachio Ice Pops are a culinary innovation right out of the 'Ice Pops!' cookbook. While apricots are a tart-tasting fruit commonly found in desserts, pistachios are a green nut and a member of the cashew family. Together these ingredients offer essential nutrients and potassium.

The apricots make these ice pops extremely velvety in addition to very healthy. The nuttiness of the pistachios offer a great texture, which isn't commonly found in most popsicles, giving this treat a Middle Eastern flair.
