How to Make popsicles (ultimate guide)

Use this guide to make popsicles in all the best flavor options and styles, including ice pops and creamy freezer pops.

Best Popsicle Molds:  I have a full post with all of my favorite ones—that are super durable and make it easy to release the popsicles.


Ingredients you need:  – Yogurt or fruit juice – Fruit: fresh or frozen – Honey or maple syrup – Vanilla extract


How to prepare:  Add the ingredients to a blender. Blend until very smooth. Pour into molds and freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight.  Here are some of my favorite popsicle recipes >>>


Strawberry Popsicles:  These popsicles are one of our all-time favorites, and they work really well with fresh or frozen strawberries so you can make them all year long.

Homemade Creamsicles:  The fresh citrus in these pops is bright and refreshing—which makes them perfect for warm weather or to soothe a sore throat.

Banana Popsicles:  My kids are obsessed with eating these for breakfast. Whatever works! (They’re seriously creamy, too.)

Grape Pops:  With fresh grapes and grape juice, these popsicles are so refreshing for days when we need a little more hydration.

Fudge Pops:  Made with a base of a simple chocolate pudding, these fudge pops are super creamy and delicious.

Green Smoothie Pop:  Freeze leftover smoothie or make a batch on purpose to freeze as popsicles. Such a fun way to offer up greens!

Mango Popsicles:  Mango and yogurt (or coconut milk) are super creamy when blended together and are so delicious that you don’t need to add any other ingredients!

Blueberry Popsicles:  Blend up blueberries with spinach and yogurt for a satisfying, produce-packed popsicle to share with the kids.

Watermelon Popsicles:  Blending fresh watermelon into ice pops is a really refreshing snack—and a great way to use up leftover watermelon.

Chocolate-Covered Bananas:  This old-school treat is as good as always and in this version, the bananas are topped with the most delicious chocolate pudding.

Rocket Pops:  Whether for Memorial Day, the 4th of July, or just any day, these homemade rocket pops are so fun and colorful!

All-Fruit Ice Pops:  They take about 10 minutes to make and are so versatile that you can make them with almost any fruit you have. Win!
