Homemade Popsicles: 5 Different Frozen Summer Treats - Gemma's Bigger Bolder Baking Ep 74



How to Make Popsicles

Three Methods:

Popsicles are excellent treats. While the store-bought ones are great, homemade ones are even better because they're really easy to make and can be any flavor you choose.

Steps

Making Popsicles Using Molds

  1. Invest in molds.Popsicle trays create the best results, while ice cube trays make miniature ice pops. The molds should be freezer-safe, preferably hard plastic.
  2. Create your mixture.Popsicles don't have to be just juice. Experiment with different varieties of drinks, by making gatorade popsicles, pudding popsicles, smoothie popsicles, or ice cube popsicles.
  3. Fill each mold about 3/4 full.You don't want to overfill it because the mixture will expand while freezing. It also may make it harder for you to get it out of the mold if overfilled.
  4. Cover the molds/cups with wrap.Aluminum foil works best, but you can also use plastic wrap. Be sure that it's on tightly.
  5. Push a popsicle stick directly in the middle of the mold.Make sure it touches the bottom of it. The foil or wrap should hold the popsicle stick in its place.
  6. Place the pops in the freezer for a few hours overnight or until the popsicles are solid.Check on it at intervals if desired. 
  7. Finished.Serve as needed.

Making Popsicles Without Molds

  1. Get a cup or glass.Choose paper or plastic cups, or use yogurt containers or similar. Be sure to clean them out if they've been used before.
    • Whatever you use must be able to handle being placed in the freezer.
  2. Fill the cup most of the way.Fill with a smoothie, flavored milk or a juice (or combination of juices) of your choice.
  3. Cover the top with aluminum foil.
  4. Poke a hole in the foil with a popsicle stick.Leave the stick in the cup or glass.
  5. Repeat as many times as you like.
  6. Put the popsicles in the freezer.Leave overnight.
  7. Take out your delicious treat, and enjoy!

Making Lazy Popsicle Yogurt or Pudding Popsicles

  1. Purchase a six-pack of flavored yogurt or dessert pudding.
  2. Find six sticks.Use chopsticks, skewers, etc.
  3. Pierce a hole in the middle of each lid.Push the stick through and rest almost at the base of the container but not quite. Repeat for each container until all six have sticks poking out of them.
  4. Place in the freezer.Leave to freeze overnight.
  5. Serve.Whenever you want a popsicle, simply snap off one container, peel off the lid and hold by the stick. Enjoy!
    • Keep the container to catch drips or to hold the large popsicle when you need a rest between licks.

  • Question
    Can I use a tooth pick for this?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    A tooth pick would work only for miniature popsicles, like ice cube sized. You'll need something longer and stronger if you want to make regular sized popsicles.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    What if I don't have popsicle sticks, can plastic spoons work?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Yes, plastic spoons can be used instead of popsicle sticks. Popsicle sticks are cheap to buy, however, and would be easier to use.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    Do you need tin foil/plastic wrap?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    No, you just need special molds for popsicles, or popsicle sticks and paper cups.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    Can we use glass cups as the molds?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    I wouldn't; glass cups may crack or shatter. Use paper cups or a popsicle mold.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    How long would I have to wait before a popsicle freezes?
    Top Answerer
    It depends on your freezer and what type of liquid you are using to make the popsicles. Usually it will take a few hours or overnight.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    What temperature is best for freezing popsicles quickly?
    Top Answerer
    There's no exact temperature that will freeze Popsicles quickly; they just need time to fully become solid. Sometimes placing them in the very back of the freezer can speed up the freezing time though.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    What else can be used instead of Popsicle sticks and spoons?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Anything long, straight, and appropriate for food can be used, such as durable drinking straws or chopsticks.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    How can I make them soft like the store bought ones? Mine are always as hard as ice cubes.
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Try making yogurt popsicles, they're usually softer than ice popsicles. You can also try putting the popsicles in the freezer for less time.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    How long would popsicles or ice cream last outside of the freezer?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    A popsicle would most likely melt after about 10 to 15 minutes, but it depends on the temperature outside. Ice cream is softer so it would melt faster than a popsicle.
    Thanks!

    What is simple syrup?

    Community Answer
    Simple syrup is a sugar syrup consisting of about twice as much sugar by weight as water. You should heat the water to dissolve the sugar.

How to Make Easy Homemade Popsicles!

Quick Summary

To make popsicles, first choose the type of mixture that you want to freeze. You can use a sports drink, your favorite juice, pudding, or smoothie. If you have popsicle molds, fill them 3/4 of the way full. But, if you don’t have molds, pour your mixture into cups and cover them with aluminum foil. Then, insert a popsicle stick in the middle of the cup through the top of the foil. Freeze your popsicles overnight, or until they are solid, and enjoy them as a special treat on a hot day!

Did this summary help you?
  • If you're using ice cube trays, toothpicks may be the best kind of handle to use, while popsicle sticks can be used when making taller popsicles.
  • Make sure that the stick is strong enough, otherwise it would slip off or not come out.
