Fall may be here, but the heat is still on. Cool off with a popsicle or two at any of these five shops.

Artistic Nature
One of the newest treats shop to open its doors in Wynwood, Cielito Artisan Pops is cranking out some of the most beautiful popsicles in town. The ice pops ($4-$7) here are not only made with the freshest ingredients, including local guava and dulce de leche, but also with toppings like organic rose petal and candied orange peel, which makes each frozen delight a delicious work of art. 2750 NW Third Ave., Miami, 786.391.0648

Mobile Treats
HipPOPs has taken over the food truck world thanks to its freshly made popsicle bars ($6). Some of the gelato, sorbet and frozen yogurt flavors include salted caramel brulee, raspberry lychee and strawberry tart. Customers can enjoy a naked bar or dip their popsicle in white, dark or semisweet chocolate and top it off with a bevy of toppings. 954.674.221

Infused With Booze
While Ladyfingrs features a full line of handmade ice cream popsicles made with fruit and soft fillings, it’s the booze-infused versions ($4-$5) that have our attention. Think strawberry margarita, Moscow mule and Aperol spritz frozen and on a wooden stick. Pop responsibly. 12327 NE Sixth Ave., North Miami, 305.970.9252

Viva Mexico!
When the founders of Morelia Gourmet Paletas couldn’t find the Mexican paletas they liked so much anywhere in town, they decided to create their own. Bigger than normal popsicles, these handmade paletas ($4-$5) feature flavors such as banana and Nutella, and pistachio and strawberry cheesecake. 76 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables, 305.456.1306

Pure & Simple
Pops For Life is all about top-notch ingredients that are as fresh as could be. While flavors include everything from mango to coconut, it’s the detox pops ($3.20) that have people flocking here. These include the hydrating pop (watermelon, pineapple, orange and apple) and the energizing pop (apple, spinach, ginger, basil, mint and cucumber). 150 NE First Ave., Miami, 786.464.9093
