With rising temperatures in May and summer just around the corner, nothing beats the Dubai heat like a delicious homemade popsicle. Instead of running to the supermarket, challenge yourself to make your own ice lollies at home – an easy and rewarding feat. All you need is a popsicle mold, which you can find nearly everywhere these days (we are quite fond of IKEA’s version, which is both inexpensive and simple to use). You can pour anything into these molds, from smoothies to juices to hot-chocolate mix, and after a few hours in the freezer – voilà! – you have an ice pop.

For this recipe, we’ve used a combination of the most refreshing flavors out there, from coconut and cinnamon to vanilla bean and a pinch of saffron. Instead of sugar, we’ve opted to sweeten these with honey and a slice of fig for a sweet and delicious hint of color.
