Interesting homemade popsicle ideas

Now that summer has finally hit Boston, I've been craving cold treats. Besides my usual standbys of frozen grapes and ice cream, I love homemade popsicles.
I recently tried this recipe out for pina colada paletas (http://cookingwithfrazzoo.blogspot.co...). They were delicious although the creamy part did separate a bit from the juice.
Does anyone have any other interesting homemade popsicle recipes they'd like to share?
Citrus/ginger combos always get me going. Yum. Or what about orange or tangerine juice infused with thyme or mint? Or chocolate-cinnamon-cayenne?
We have a paleta shop a few hrs away and they always have interesting concoctions:
mojito pops - lime juice and mint simple syrup
spicy mango - mango juice and chiles
mexican chocolate - chocolate pudding and cinnamon
I made a watermelon mint version for the 4th, and it was excellent! Use mostly watermelon, a few strawberries for texture, and cassis for color. Then add as much mint as you'd like, tasting to judge pungency. The speckles of mint are pretty.
