Popsicle Recipes

Sharing is caring!

As a child, the only popsicles I ever ate were either Otter Pops or Jello Pudding Pops. While both of those are AMAZING in their own right (oh, Bill Cosby what I wouldn’t give for one of those vanilla/chocolate swirl treats right now) the notion that you could actually make your own never crossed my young mind. Popsicles came in boxes.  End of discussion.

DIY Popsicles for Summer

Obviously, I have learned the truth over the years.  Making your own popsicles is not only a money saver, it is potentially healthier and is a great way to use up the last of your fruit before it spoils.  Here are some recipes that will make you forget all those pre-packaged popsicles of your youth.  Well, maybe just long for them a little less.

Fresh Fruit Popsicle

This is a very flexible recipe that allows you to use whatever fruit you have on hand.  These are not only delicious, they are beautiful!

Watermelon Lemonade Popsicle

Nothing says summer more than watermelon and lemonade.  This recipe is actually for just the beverage, but it freezes up into popsicle form beautifully. Combine these two wonderful flavors for the ultimate summer treat!

Vanilla Orange Popsicle


One word:  Creamsicle.  That is all.

Double Chocolate Frozen Fudge Pops

So…these are not good for you.  They are not a healthy treat at all.  But they are freakin’ good.  And sometimes you just want a good old unhealthy dessert.  Just try to only make them once per summer…

Mango Clove Popsicles

I am always interested in trying new flavor combinations.  The richness of cloves brings an interesting twist to a typical summer fruit.

Monkey Tails

These are not really a popsicle, but they are a frozen treat on a stick. Pretty much the same thing as far as I’m concerned.  Frozen bananas dipped in melted chocolate and rolled in crushed nuts. If you do not want to give your kids chocolate, you can do the same banana preparation then dip them in orange juice and roll them in unsweetened coconut.
