Thank you, Mother Nature. It finally feels like summer. Temps are high and so are our spirits, and you can bet we’re set for the heat. We’ve got our sunscreen, our sundresses, fab bikini and favourite flip flops in the bag, just waiting for those lazy days at the cottage or poolside.
What do we need now? Something delicious to cool us down, from the inside out because sadly, woman cannot exist on frozen margaritas and rocket pops alone. Almost all of our fave treats—cocktails included—are loaded with sugar and calories, two things we definitely CAN live without.
So we went on the hunt for a cold, refreshing treat that would nourish us too, and we found it in DeeBees IcePops ($4.99-$5.99/ pack of 4), an organic frozen concoction that will please our hot flashes, palates and waistlines, all at the same time. Which makes the founders—husband and wife doctor team (PhD +MD) Dionne Laslo-Baker and Stephen Baker—very happy. Their labour of love, a blend of antioxidant rich teas like naturally non-caffeinated rooibos and other yummy stuff like organic fruit, was created with the purest ingredients possible, right in their own kitchen, to satisfy their own family’s yearning for sweet, sticky, summertime snacks.
Why We Love DeeBees Frozen TeaPops
Why do we love these tealicious ice pops? Let us count the ways:
- They’re all-natural and low in sugar at about 7-9 grams per TeaPop.
- Each pop has just 25-50 calories, which means we can have more than one.
- They’re good for us. Each TeaPop is equivalent to a bowl of organic superfruits and a heart-warming cup of organic tea.
- They’re certified organic, vegan, non-GMO, Kosher, and gluten-free.
- They are SO good!

Editor’s DeeBees flavour picks:
Randi: The Chocolate fudge taste just like my all-time number one childhood fave, fudgesicles. Each lick reminds me of those bike rides to the corner store.
Mara: Raspberry Citrus is like a party in my mouth. I almost feel like I’m having a mojito. Almost. Runner up? Pink Lemonade. Because, come on. What says summer more than pink lemonade?
