Hi Bold Bakers!

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

 

How Do You Make a Popsicle?

I love Popsicles because you don’t have to follow exact measurements and ingredients like you generally have to do in most baking. Although I’m a rule follower and generally ok with that (maybe that’s why I like baking), popsicles do not follow that same principle. You can leave out an ingredient if you don’t have it or swap it out entirely for another one. If you don’t like lemonade, for example, use orange or cranberry juice!

Fruit, yogurt, and juice make up the majority of these delicious and healthy treats. The smooth fruit purees are fresh and provide enough natural sugar for perfectly balanced sweetness. Once layered into your favorite ice pop mold and frozen for a minimum of five hours, my popsicle recipes are incredibly refreshing and guaranteed to keep you cool on any summer day.

To remove your homemade popsicles, simply leave them out to set at room temperature or run the mold under water and gently pop them out. You can buy the Ice Pop Maker Molds I used HERE on Amazon.

So let’s get freezing!

Fresh Mango and Strawberry Popsicles

Homemade, Vegan, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Plant-based, Dessert, cruelty-free, mango, strawberry, frozen treat, Gemma Stafford, Bigger Bolder Baking, Recipe, How to make popsicles

With rich mango and tart, ripe strawberries, this fruit combination is the perfect summer dessert. Given that these are all natural and free of added sugar, you’ll feel refreshed and guilt-free.

Creamsicle Popsicles

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

Creamsicles are a childhood favorite of mine. You’ll get the best of both worlds with my creamy and sweet popsicle recipe. I like to alternate between the 2 layers to get both cream and orange in one swoop – just like what I would do as a child.

This fresh fruit popsicle could not be simpler to whip up. 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 bring out the best of flavors.

Ingredients

  • 2 kiwis
  • 10 large strawberry halves
  • 1 mango , roughly chopped
  • 30 blueberries , roughly

Instructions

  • Working with one fruit at a time, puree in a small food processor. Rinse the machine out between fruits.
  • Carefully spoon layer by layer of your fruit into each popsicle mold.
  • I didn’t freeze layer by layer because I thought my layers stayed nice but if you want absolute perfect lines then feel free too.
  • Cover mold, add sticks and freeze for at least 5 hours or overnight.
  • TIP: Run the molds under warm water to loosen up the popsicles.
  • NOTES
  • The fruit amounts are approximate, depending on your mold you may need a little more or a little less. You can always add a little water or yogurt to stretch the amount.

Recipe Notes

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

Hello again! I grew up with banana popsicles but never has banana puree in it. Would I make them with banana liquor?

Gemma, I love the way these popsicles look, but seriously, how do you get them out of the mold? I’m asking before I try to make them because I’ve made other types of popsicles before and it was impossible to get them out of the mold without melting them! Please let us know this! 🙂
