Eating homemade popsicles is perfectly acceptable for just about any day during the summer! Right? During the dog days of summer, these popsicles are the perfect cold treat to cool you down.

Making Homemade Popsicles

I like making my homemade popsicles. It’s pretty easy!

  • Blend a few ingredients
  • Pour them into a popsicle mold
  • Freeze.

Since it’s that time of year, I thought you would enjoy making them too. All you’ll need are your recipe ingredients and a popsicle mold. This is the one I have, but there are all kinds. I’ve included a couple of links in this post to help you get started.

Chances are you had your fill of these as a child.  I used to make them for my kids, just like my mom did for me and my sisters when we were little. :)

Homemade Popsicles are super easy to make and can be made in just about any flavor you choose.  The hardest part about making them is dishing out a BIG serving of patience while they FREEZE.  Kids LOVE them and, with a little supervision, will enjoy helping you make them.  If you don’t have popsicle molds you can use small paper cups, or BIG ones, whichever you prefer.

These homemade popsicles will cool you down after you’ve worked up a sweat from summer activities. You can make and freeze several batches ahead of time and have them in the freezer ready to grab.

Do you have a favorite homemade popsicle recipe? What’s your favorite flavor? You know I would love for you to tell me in the comments. Please don’t be shy!
