5 Best Popsicles for Summer

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

As the Summer months roll around, I love being outdoors in the warm California weather and enjoying some frozen treats. After recently sharing my new milkshake and ice cream flavors, I had to create five brand new popsicle flavors! This year I decided to go as Big, Bold and decadent as possible!

All five of these flavors have a smooth and creamy taste, as they use a base of yogurt, milk and cream. This tasty combination of ingredients actually makes these recipes a little healthy and make it super accessible. You will most likely have these ingredients in your fridge already, so its just a matter of getting creative with what flavorings to add and how you decorate them.

These popsicles are show stoppers! While you theoretically could settle with just pouring these flavors into molds and freezing them, I’ve gone the extra step and garnished each flavor with a little something special. Like my creamy Chocolate & Peanut Butter Popsicle, which is dipped in chocolate and coated in crunchy peanuts, or my Strawberry Milk Popsicle that gets a splash of color and sweetness from confetti sprinkles. As a result, these popsicles are simply gorgeous to look at!

Popsicles are such a simple way to make a really special single-serving dessert. I can’t wait for you all to see how easy these five new popsicle flavors are to make.  These look and taste like the epitome of Summertime treats. They’re super fun, colorful and festive! Get all the recipes below.

    Hey gemma

    Just wondring if you know any good places in ireland to buy popsiclemolds (that is in a store),

    Eiman

    PS love your videos♥️????

    • Gemma Stafford on July 5, 2017 at 10:20 am

      Hi Eiman,

      Tesco or TKMAXX would be great spots in Ireland to find molds. Aldi and lidl are also good spots for random things like that :).

    What kind of Greek yogurt do you use?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 1, 2017 at 1:45 pm

      Hi there,
      Greek yogurt is a strained yogurt. It is called Greek when made in Greece, but any strained yogurt will work for you.
      Natural yogurt is strained through a muslin cloth, over a bowl, in the fridge, overnight. The solids separate from the whey, and this is a creamy rich yogurt. So, look at the carton in your store, it will tell you. You do not want a Greek Style yogurt, these are often thickened with a jelling agent, do a little research!

    Hi Gemma! Love all the popsicle videos. I just tried the raspberry coconut, mint chip and neopalitan pops! First two were great but the neo pop came out runny and quickly melted out the mold. Not clean and perfect like the rasp coconut and mint chip. Not sure why it wouldn’t hold its form like yours in the video. Could it be the heavy cream? Any tips for me? Thanks!

    • Gemma Stafford on July 3, 2017 at 3:32 am

      Hi there Moui,
      It sounds like you did something different with the recipe, though I am not sure what you changed.
      When you change an ingredient you change the result in any recipe.
      Sorry for my late response, I am traveling at the moment. do let me know what you did,
      Gemma 🙂

  5. Piume on June 22, 2017 at 6:01 am

    Hi Gemma, I’m a big fan of yours and had made many of your recipes like cakes(zebra cake was outstanding), ice cream, crazy dough naan and lots more. Actually I really love Indian foods (but I’m a Sri Lankan 😉 ) and hope that you would make more indian recipes in your channel. Wish u all the best and keep it up!!!!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 22, 2017 at 11:11 pm

      Hi,

      Best,

    Best bread recipe. Very easy. Very clear explanation. I tried and everybody loved it.
    Please put more recipes for bread.
    Thankyou very much.

      That is great Sha, I have a passion for bread, will keep at it, and you do too! more this Sunday,
      Gemma 🙂

  9. Joanna on June 10, 2017 at 6:12 am

    Gemma,
    Do you have to push the popsicle stick all the way to the bottom of the mold before you freeze it? I noticed in your vids that you didn’t have much room to hold the stick. And I really don’t want to sound rude at all, but may you please try not to say, “oh my gosh.” If you do I’ll have to be honest to my mom and tell her and then I won’t be aloud to watch your vids or make your recipes! ?I totally don’t mind you saying it in real life, but may you please not say it just in your vids. I don’t mind, “Oh my,” “Oh wow,” “Oh my word,” or ” Oh my goodness.” I ❤️ watching your videos, and you don’t know HOW MUCH that would mean to me! Again, not trying AT ALL to be rude, just would prefer that, and would ❤️ to continue watching your videos and making your recipes. Thank you!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 11, 2017 at 2:57 am

      Haha! Joanna, I do not feel offended, but old habits die hard, and there is no problem with using the word gosh! This word, along with Golly, and Gee, has been in use for at least a hundred years, and it is use in song, in poems, in rhymes and in everyday language. ‘There is no hurt in words’ as Shakespeare may have said.
      Do not do anything which your Mom does not approve of Joanna, this is really important for you, but I do hope you carry on baking!
      Gemma 😉

  10. Joanna on June 10, 2017 at 5:40 am

    Oh my word!
    Literally screamed when I saw this recipe. Probably will try one of these first on my new molds. Such great popsicle flavor ideas, Gemma! Thanks for posting vid, can’t WAIT to try!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 11, 2017 at 2:57 am

      Get to the kitchen Joanna!
      Gemma 🙂

  11. Hannah.C on June 8, 2017 at 8:00 pm

    This looks really good! Can’t wait to try it, gonna try the no machine ice cream too!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 9, 2017 at 2:49 am

      Hi hannah,
      Yes, do try these, they are a great recipe for the young bold bakers!
      Gemma 🙂

  12. Tina M First on June 8, 2017 at 9:20 am

    Can the homemade popsicles be made with soy milk or almond milk? I can’t drink or eat regular dairy because of medication i take so i try to avoid it as much as possible. Thanks for your help. Hoping to be able to make these!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 9, 2017 at 3:25 am

      Hi Tina,
      Yes, why not! perfect. You can use coconut cream for these too. Do experiment!
      Gemma 🙂
