How to Make Homemade Popsicles

Popsicles not only make a great treat, but they can be a healthy one as well! And there are endless possibilities for what you can put in a popsicle. Follow this guide to make your own popsicle creation!

Popsicle Essentials

To make a popsicle it is easiest if you have a popsicle mold, popsicle sticks, and a good blender. Sure there are ways to get around a popsicle mold, such as using paper cups, but trust me when I say investing in a reusable popsicle mold is worth it!

Popsicle Base

Your base is the bulk of what makes up your popsicle! You can go as simple as coconut water, or you can pick whole fruits as your base, or you can go creamy and use yogurt or coconut milk. Next you want to think about some additional flavors to use in your popsicle. If you didn’t choose a fruit for a base, you’ll want to pick something especially flavorful. And keep in mind if this is to be served as dessert or as a healthy treat. Some good options for a base and some added flavor are:

  • Fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, peach, raspberry, pineapple or cherry!
  • Creamy base such as yogurt, almond milk, coconut milk, or even cashew cream!
  • Flavorful add in’s such as nut butters, chocolate, cocoa powder, extracts, fresh herbs!

How to Layer a Popsicle

Freeze each layer until it sets. Then when you put your next layer it won’t bleed into the one below it!

  • Hi Lexi, I’ve been following your blog for a while and I love your colorful photos! I have two questions: 1) What app do you use to make those text headings? I love the fonts! 2) Where do you get your kitchen linens? Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Jess! I use photoshop to edit, and get my linens ALL over the place. Crate and barrel, Home Goods, Pottery Barn, Sur La Table. Crate and barrel usually has good ones on sale!
