These popsicles include a variety of fruits and red wine. Make the most of the summer by using fruits that are in season, such as berries and peaches.

Coconut milk gives these popsicles a creamy texture while lemongrass provides a zesty flavor. Raw honey is also used to create a healthier simple syrup.
