Popsicles at Whisk Bakeshop
(2201 Cherokee Street; 314-932-5166)

Popsicles are a summer staple, whether your mom buys them in bulk from the grocery store or you still run to the street when you hear the ice-cream man. But Whisk makes grownup versions that depend on the freshest produce available. Try strawberry, peach, goat cheese and blackberry, avocado, cucumber lime or whatever else owner Kaylen Wissinger has whipped up. Our personal favorite is the lavender lemonade. Don't you feel cooler already?
