Homemade Popsicles

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

I’m excited to bring you another installment in my summer frozen dessert line up, and that is the much-requested Homemade Popsicles. With all of the flavor possibilities, there is something for everyone. Made from natural fruit and good quality ingredients, they’re the perfect all round treat.

I love Popsicles because generally when it comes to desserts and baking you have to follow exact measurements and ingredients. I am a rule follower so I’m ok with that (maybe that’s why I like baking). However with Popsicles you don’t have to do that. If you don’t have an ingredient you can leave it out, or swap it for another one. If you don’t like lemonade, use orange, or cranberry.

You can get really creative with these frozen treats and make them the exact flavor you want!

Plus, make sure to check out my BONUS recipe featuring a gorgeous Blueberry Lemon Popsicle.

And you can buy the Ice Pop Maker Molds I used HERE on Amazon as well as other Popsicle accessories below.

So let’s get freezing!

Creamsicle Popsicles

Homemade, Gluten-free, Dessert, cruelty-free, creamsicle, greek yogurt, orange, frozen treat, Gemma Stafford, Bigger Bolder Baking, Recipe, How to make creamsicles

A Creamsicle is a childhood favorite of mine. You get the best of both worlds, creamy and sweet. I like to alternate between the 2 layers to get a little of both just like what I would do as a child. For me food memories are some of my earliest and favorite.

This fresh and fruity Popsicle could not be simpler. Mix your favorite fruit with fresh lemonade and freeze. It sounds too simple, right? The results are absolutely gorgeous! I strongly suggest adding lime zest to your lemonade to take the flavor to another level.

Ingredients
  • 2 kiwis
  • 10 large strawberry halves

  5. TIP: Run the molds under warm water to loosen up the popsicles.
  6. NOTES

    Hello, how do you will pack a homemade popsicle ? 🙂
    Sorry for my bad english, I’m French ^^”

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on June 19, 2017 at 12:14 pm

      Bonjour Emile,
      il est bon de vous accueillir avec nous. Votre anglais est meilleur que mon français!
      Lorsque les pops sont gelés, vous pouvez les retirer des moules, les enrouler dans une pellicule et retourner au congélateur dans une boîte hermétique. Vous pouvez les poser à plat.
      J’espère que vous appréciez ces derniers!
      Gemma 🙂
