Offering a taste of Russia, this recipe for Beet and Sour Cream Ice Pops is refreshing and non-traditional.

Unlike the typical store-bought frozen pops, this ice pop recipe contains less sugar and more health benefits. Quite popular in Russia, these peculiar popsicles contain fresh beet juice, lemon juice, super refined sugar and one whole cup of sour cream. Though beet juice is available in the usual grocery store, this recipe recommends homemade beet juice with the skins included. This recipe is fairly easy and only requires a prep time of five minutes. However, the total wait time is a reasonable two hours.

With benefits that include detoxification support, decrease in blood pressure and stamina boosts, Beet and Sour Cream Ice Pops are the healthy summer treat to have this season.
