30 Simple Ice Pop Recipes That Are Perfect for Summer

Frozen treats aren't just for kids, and that's especially true when it comes to ice pops. Here, we're sharing our takes on the traditional summertime snack, which range from refreshing and fruity to decadent and creamy. They all require minimal prep and are the perfect make-ahead summer desserts&mdashhave them ready in your freezer for easy entertaining or a cooling afternoon snack.

As far as popsicles go, you have a lot of flavor options. While classic fruit blends are always tasty, you can also get creative with more inventive mixes. Case in point? The Creamy Horchata Pops that are pictured here. You just need three ingredients&mdashrice milk, condensed milk, and cinnamon&mdashand a freezer in order to turn the popular Mexican beverage into ice pops. It's an upgraded take on the desserts you'd find in the frozen section at your grocery store, but a guaranteed winner with family and friends.

If you do want to go with fruit flavors, you have a lot of options. Adults and children alike will also love our Berry-Granola Parfait Pops&mdashthey're so good (and so good for you) that you could eat these ice pops for breakfast. Inspired by a yogurt and granola parfait, the base of these pops is made with yogurt and honey that have been whisked together, then speckled with fresh berries. The mixture is poured into molds to freeze once they're completely frozen, they're then drizzled with honey on one side and dipped in your favorite granola. These pops are a super simple sweet treat, and there's no added sugar.

We also have two patriotic pops for a cool Fourth of July dessert. These Red, White, and Blueberry Pops are the ultimate take on a popular Independence Day treat. Another option is the Firecracker Ice Pops&mdashthey're aptly named for Independence Day and look especially festive thanks to fresh strawberries and blueberries.

Pick one, or all, of these flavorful ice pops to make this summer and you won't be disappointed.

40+ Popsicle Recipes to Help You Keep Cool This Summer

Keep it healthy with fresh-from-the-freezer fruit ice pops, or indulge in a homemade chocolate treat.

Homemade ice cream sandwiches and other fresh-from-the-freezer treats are the name of the game this summer. But it's not just about homemade ice cream recipes or homemade frozen yogurt recipes. Sometimes you want something that's a little icier and fruitier: You want an ice pop! The best part about ice pops, aside from the many, many (many) flavors they come in, is how easy they are to make. Forget buying an expensive ice cream maker or needing to spend hours cooking up custards. At their most basic, all you need is fruit juice, a pack of disposable paper cups, and some wooden sticks.

Here, we have rounded up the best homemade ice pop recipes to keep your sweet tooth at bay and cool you down the entire season. Your family can stay on the healthy side without skimping on flavor thanks to fresh, already-sweet ingredient combos like raspberry-coconut, kiwi-watermelon, and coconut-pineapple.

Of course, there&rsquos nothing wrong with a bit of indulgence either. That's why we've also included extra sweet treats like confetti ice cream pops, cake batter ice pops, and even a hot chocolate ice pop. (It's packed with mini marshmallows. You truly need to see this thing.) No matter which way you&rsquore leaning, you only need a few simple ingredients and a pop mold to whip up your own creations. Try any one (or three) of these easy and delicious ice pop recipes as a refreshing snack or dessert, and consider making these boozy recipes for an adults-only treat.


Once you have everything ready to go, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Next, stir in one box of gelatin and 1 tablespoon of sugar, making sure all of the sugar is dissolved. Finish up by stirring in 1 cup of cold water.

Pour this mixture into popsicle molds or paper cups, add the sticks, and place in the freezer. This recipe will yield between four and six finished popsicles, depending on the size of your mold, which is approximately the same size as popsicles found in the supermarket.

Better Than Store-Bought Popsicles: 7 Tips for Perfect Zoku Pops

I have always adored popsicles and the interesting flavor combinations you can create. However, that perfect frozen yet soft crystal structure that you find in store-bought popsicles always eluded me. I bought countless different molds over the years trying to find what would bring me popsicle bliss, but the final pop never had that exquisite texture I craved.

The scientist in me needed to know why. It turns out the critical factor is T I M E.

The main difference between a store bought popsicle and what we make at home is the SIZE of the crystals in the frozen product. The faster something freezes, the smaller the crystals are.

The smaller the crystals, the finer the texture. Our home freezers, despite being cold to us, actually freeze things rather slowly. The formed crystals are large and just aren’t as pleasing to the tongue. It’s simply not possible to get that texture with a normal mold at home!

However, store-bought popsicles come with some downsides. They are expensive. One must navigate the waters of “I-hope-these-don’t-melt-before-I-can-get-through-the-endless-line-at-the-cashier-and-make-it-home!” And they include high sugar content and other ingredients we cannot pronounce that the health conscious among us may not want to feed our kids.

Enter the Zoku

The Zoku Pops Maker is an amazing little piece of kitchen technology that was born out of the desire to freeze popsicles faster at home! (remember, faster freezing means better texture!) You store the unit in the freezer until ready for use. There is no electricity required. The cold solution surrounding the molds inside the unit allows for super fast heat transfer, which freezes your popsicle fluid before your eyes. I am not exaggerating here. I read that it made popsicles in 7 minutes, but it really is something to watch come true!

The Zoku Pops makers come in Single , Double , or Triple models (purchase one here ), meaning you can make one, two, or three Zoku pops at once. You can use almost any liquid to create a popsicle! After you make the first batch and pop those out, you can pour in more popsicle fluid and freeze a second batch. This one will take a little longer to freeze because you are starting at a warmer temperature. You can make a third batch of pops (which again takes even longer to freeze solid – yet still much faster than traditional freezing!) before the unit needs to return to the freezer for a few hours to get super cold again.

Things I love about the Zoku

  1. Texture: I love that the Zoku allows me to make popsicles with that coveted perfectly smooth, frozen yet soft texture in my own kitchen.
  2. Control: I love that Zoku lets ME be the one who controls WHAT is in the popsicles I’m feeding my kids for dessert. I control the sugar content. I don’t add artificial colors or flavorings. And I can begin to introduce more complex flavors to their palettes, like ginger, or basil, or lemongrass!
  3. Ease: The ‘remover tool’ screws onto each popsicle stick and uses that force to dislodge the popsicle from the mold. It’s absolutely brilliant. No fighting the mold. No running it under hot water and melting half the popsicle.
  4. Portion Size: The portion size of the pops is really nice. It’s not too much for a young child to finish, and it is just enough to satisfy that adult need for something sweet after dinner without overloading you with calories.

Tips for Success

  1. Chill: The pops WILL freeze faster (in that 7 minute time range) if you thoroughly chill the popsicle fluid first. You don’t have to, but it will take longer. So throw your ingredients in the blender (I lovethis one with a capital L) a couple of hours early and then freeze as you sit down for dinner.
  2. Thin: I like my smoothies thick, but I have found that you need a runnier consistency for pouring into the Zoku . You don’t want it to freeze as it enters the mold and prevent the fluid from filling the mold. Check out this ‘pinstrocity’ from Instagram that I made when I thought I’d make a rainbow pop with thick fruit purees. We affectionately refer to it as “what the inside of a frog looks like”.
  3. Pour Spout: Find something with a tiny spout to pour the fluid into the molds. It makes for much cleaner Zoku pops. I use my 1 cup OXO angled measuring cup with a spout , but this little mini cup looks like it would be perfect for this and measuring out small quantities for layers.
  4. Pop ‘Em then Leave ‘Em: When you use the ‘remover tool’ to dislodge the Zoku pops, just let them fall back into the mold as you unscrew the other pops. Once that suction has been removed, you can continue to pull the pop out using your own power. This keeps the pops wonderfully frozen as you are tending to the other pops.
  5. Duplicate sticks: Go ahead and order a second set of sticks so you always have clean sticks on hand. The popsicles can be made ahead of time and placed in a freezer bag. I find the texture to be harder than when they are fresh made, but if you let them sit on the counter for 5 or so minutes, it solves that problem.
  6. Uh oh: I’ve only had one Zoku disaster in the two years I’ve had it. The instructions warn against going too low in sugar content, using artificial sweeteners, or using ice cream or pudding, because the remover tool may not be able to get the pops out. Although I utterly ADORE Alton Brown’s Fudge Pops recipe , it wouldn’t come out of the Zoku. So I guess I have something I can use all my old popsicle molds for!
  7. Model size: Consider the size of your family when selecting the model to purchase. For example, for a family of four, it may be better to go with two Double models so that four popsicles are finished at once. For us, someone (me) always ends up having to wait for the second batch to have her popsicle, with the two kids and Daddy having the three that pop out of the first batch.
