How Do You Make Homemade Popsicles?

Making homemade popsicles is quite simple and easy. Easier still if you have the right tools.

Depending on what ingredients you use to make them, a simple blender and popsicle mold will make the process quite easy. Both for making the popsicles, and for storing them. I really like silicone molds because it’s easy to remove the popsicles.

How Do You Make Popsicles If You Don’t Have A Mold?

You don’t have to have a popsicle mold to make popsicles. You just need some sort of container that will hold liquid and allow for a popsicle stick to be frozen in the center. Here are some suggestions:

  • Ice cube trays – Use toothpicks instead of popsicle sticks.
  • Daisy cups – Use popsicle sticks and aluminum foil to hold them in the center.
  • Cupcake wrappers – Depending on their size, you can use either toothpicks or popsicle sticks.

Canned Pineapple Vs. Fresh Pineapple

Technically, you can definitely use canned pineapple (no sugar added!). But if you want a true pineapple flavor, you’ll want to use fresh, sweet, pineapple.

Popsicle Flavor Variations

While this recipe is for pineapple popsicles, you can use this recipe to make popsicles of nearly any fruit. Consider:

  • Strawberries
  • Peaches
  • Nectarines
  • Plums
  • Cherries
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Oranges
  • Mandarins
  • Mangos

About The Ingredients For Pineapple Popsicles

Coconut milk – This is the canned stuff, not the refrigerated stuff. Make sure there is no sugar added. Full-fat will give you the creamiest popsicles, but if you don’t mind compromising on the texture, you can use light coconut milk too.

Pineapple chunks – As mentioned above, you’ll get the best flavor using fresh pineapple that you peel and core yourself.

Maple syrup – Use the real thing, not any type of substitute. If you want more of a sweet flavor, you can substitute with honey instead. Maple syrup tends to be milder in sweetness. So taste your fruit to see how much sweetness it really needs.

Lemon juice – Again, fresh squeezed is best. You’ll want approximately 2 medium lemons for this. If you prefer, you can also use lime juice if you don’t want to waste the limes.

Lime zest – This is optional and gives the popsicles a more tropical flavor.

Shredded coconut – This is optional and gives the popsicles more of a tropical flavor.

With the rest of the pineapple, cut it into smaller pieces and place them into a high-speed blender or a food processor. Add the coconut milk, maple syrup, lemon juice, and grated zest (if using) into the blender and blend until all the ingredients mix.

Place one pineapple chunk inside each popsicle well in your mold. Pour the blended mix into the mold, add another pineapple chunk, position the popsicle sticks into the popsicle wells, and place the mold in the freezer for at least 6 hours to overnight.
