With warm weather and a holiday weekend fast approaching, we know it’s time to make some spectacular homemade popsicles. Keep reading to see how to make these summertime treats, and get some recipes we KNOW you’ve never tried before.

Easy Fruit Popsicles: Make some popsicles to have in your freezer for summer… they’re so simple!

Berry Good Popsicles: Using yogurt and berries, these treats are a great source of calcium have less sugar than if they were made with juice.

Frozen Watermelon Pops: Pretty, pink frozen watermelon puree that will cool you to the bone on a hot summer afternoon! I had originally made this as a sherbet but found it difficult to serve because it freezes so firmly but it’s great as popsicles. All ages agree that it’s a wonderfully refreshing summer treat. I like to make sure that I freeze cubed watermelon before the season’s up to be able to make a few batches during the fall and spring too!

JellO Frosty Pops: A fun treat for kids and a piece of nostalgia for adults–remember freezing your fruit juice to make popsicles?

Rainbow Cookie Pops: The kids will love these cute cookies that you eat off a stick!

Pina Colada Ice Pops: For ice pops without alcohol, use pineapple juice instead of rum.

Maraschino Lemonade Pops: Not only is this my favorite summer time treat my children love them as well. What child doesn’t like maraschino cherries? This is just like a cherry lemonade but frozen.

Chocolate-Dipped Cheesecake Pops: These “too cute” cheesecake pops are the perfect alternative to a cake at any baby shower or on Mother’s Day.

    This goes along on the band wagon. I just got a cookbook all about making popsicles for my mothers day present. Times are deffinatly repeating. When I was young thats all we got! Except they were just frozen sticks of kool-aide. Now they are the new thing for adults as well as kids. Nice blog.

    When my son was little…more than 30 yrs. ago…I made popsicles for him using plain yogurt, fruit–like bananas, blueberries or strawberries, a bit of honey and enough milk to loosen up the mixture and help the popsicles freeze well. All the neighborhood kids loved them too!!!
