Homemade popsicles: My current obsession

Sunny days with temperatures topping out at 90 degrees.  Warm nights that just don't quit.  Summer is here.  Welcome back to sandy toes and salty hair.  To brain freeze and porch swings and backyard gardens.  Long live summer.

For the past couple of weeks, I have developed a bit of an obsession.  It all started when the BF had a tonsillectomy and I decided that I'd help nurse him back to health with some homemade popsicles. 

Here was my first attempt, a Watermelon Lime Pop:

And thus, a new hobby is born. Here's a round up of all the recipes I've been tinkering with and others I can't wait to try.
