At Nashville’s Las Paletas (2905 12th Ave. South; 615-386-2101) according to Food Network Magazine they have a fresh corn with heavy cream pop.  Then if your heading to the west coast, check out Sol Pops (  In Portland, OR, they have multiple locations and sells a sugar snap pea -orange juice pop.

Unfortunately, I don’t live anywhere near these areas, but I’m going to try and make them at home.  It will be a trial and error for sure.  My toddler daughter LOVES ice cream and ice pops.  If I can sneak a veggie into it, bonus for me!  I looked on the web for a little bit to find a “base” recipe with no results.  However, I know juices will freeze and if I run some veggies in the food processor.
