Summertime Popsicle Recipes
Who doesn’t love an ice-cold popsicle on a hot summer’s day? When the temperature spikes in the middle of summer, everyone is searching for ways to cool off. Our usual method is to visit the beach or the pool to take a dip. Whatever it may be in your home, I am sure it is paired with a refreshing summer snack. And one of the best refreshing summer treats on a hot day are popsicles!

Take a look at these DIY Popsicle Recipes with Fruit, Spirits, Chocolate and more – and be sure to let us know your favorites!
How do you make DIY popsicles creamy instead of icy?
Icy popsicles can work if they are a fruit variety. But if you are making chocolate or any other cream-based popsicles, you will want to have a smooth texture, not an icy one. A tip I saw online is to add a tablespoon of cornstarch to your DIY popsicles before pouring the mixture into your molds! If anyone tries this, I’d love to know how it works for you. It sounds like a great little hack to make sure your creamy popsicle texture stays on point!
What can you make you DIY popsicles in?
You might think that you need molds specifically designed for popsicles in order to make your own at home, but that actually isn’t the case! Of course, a popsicle mold would be the easiest way, and you can always grab some inexpensive ones off of Amazon or at the Dollar Tree if you would prefer. But if you are in a pinch, you can easily use these household items in place of a mold!
- Plastic or paper cups
- Ice cube trays
- Clean, recycled yogurt containers
- Any small baking tins, like muffin tins
If you don’t have popsicle sticks to use, a sturdy straw, plastic spoon, or plastic knife would work as well. We do recommend popsicle sticks though, as they are relatively easy to find, super inexpensive, and they have the name “popsicle sticks” for a reason — they are made for the job!
