Once of the exciting parts of making homemade popsicles are the endless flavor possibilities. You can create refreshing combinations using ingredients you have on hand or anything in season. Use your imagination!

Try blending fresh strawberries and creamy coconut milk for a tropical twist, or infuse watermelon with a hint of lime for a zesty treat. You can also experiment with layering different fruit blends to create a beautiful layered popsicles. We also love making yogurt pops with greek yogurt, fruit and granola.

For something more unique, try adding herbs like mint or basil to your fruit. You can add yogurt, chia seeds, or honey for added texture and flavor. The possibilities are endless.


Why make homemade popsicles?

Making popsicles at home has so many benefits. Our biggest reason for making homemade popsicles is because you can control the ingredients.

Involve kids in the kitchen! They can participate in the prep work and see all the goodness that goes into the summer treats. Then waiting and anticipating the treat once they are frozen.

Budget friendly – You don’t need tons of ingredients for homemade popsicles. Our Watermelon Popsicle recipe requires watermelon, lime, water and honey. That’s it! Often times we blend whatever fruits we have on hand to make a summer treat.

You control the ingredients! If your family has dietary restrictions (like a food allergy to certain fruits or dairy), you can completely control what goes into the popsicle molds.

So, grab your favorite popsicle molds, grab your ingredients, and start your delicious adventure of making homemade popsicles this summer!
