Ice Pops Recipe
This Ice Pops Recipe is perfect for a hot day or for a kids birthday party.
In fact these delicious treats are perfect for any time that you or the kids feel like cooling down with something ice cold and delicious!
As you make them in advance, it is one less food item to do on the day.
The great thing about these homemade ice pops is that you can be creative as you like.
You can either make them fruity or milky, colored or plain and you can even put small pieces of fruit inside.
You could even be very creative and make a multi colored ice lolly.
Ingredients for Ice Pops Recipe

Freezing Time : 6 hours minimum
Equipment : Clean and empty ice pop molds and popsicle sticks

How to Make Ice Pops Recipe
- Place the molds in a small tray that will fit in your freezer.
- Fill each mold with your chosen liquid filling. Don't fill right to the top as the liquid will expand when it freezes. Leave a 1/8 of an inch gap.
- Place in the freezer for a few hours or until the mix has started to turn slushy.
- Remove from the freezer and place a popsicle stick in the center of each pot. Return them to the freezer. If the stick falls over then remove it and allow the ice pop to freeze a bit more.
- Allow the ice pops to fully freeze. This usually takes 6 hours or overnight.
- When you want to eat them, just take the ice pop out the freezer, wait a minute or two and slide the ice pop out of the pot
Multi-colored Ice Pops Recipe
To make a multi-colored ice pop, or Rainbow Pop as we call them, when you fill the pot with your chosen filling, only half fill it.
Pop it in the freezer to set for at least 3 hours.
Then remove it and follow on as from step 2 above.
You could even mix the flavors and textures so for example, one half could be yogurt and the other fruit juice.
Tip: We all know how messy little kids can be with ice pops! Here's what I do.....take a small paper napkin, cut a hole in the center and then push the ice pops stick through the hole. This will help catch drips and keep sticky hands to a minimum.
