There is nothing quite as refreshing or just plain fun as sitting outside on a hot summer day and enjoying one of these icy treats.
Often I just throw a bunch of fruit and juice into the blender and see what we come up with, but other times I want something a bit more inspired.
In case you’ve got popsicle fever, too, here are 15+ of my favorite popsicle ideas to get you ready for spring and summer.
**Warning: This post contains lots of cute pictures of kids eating popsicles!**
To me part of the point of making your own popsicles is being able to make them as healthy – and still delicious! – as you want. Why bother with sugar-laden versions when you can try recipes like these?
Summer brings tons of fresh berries, so I am looking forward to making these Berry Bliss Pops from Pickle Bums…
…and these Blueberry Ice Pops from Dukes & Duchesses.
And what about these yummy strawberry orange pops from The Scrap Shoppe?
I love this idea from Mom Endeavors to cut up fresh fruit to make these Fruity Grape Popsicles.
Clumsy Crafter created these easy Summer Breeze Popsicles using strawberries and San Pelligrino sparkling water.
How about trying a new fruit in your pops this summer? Popsicles from the tamarind fruit (shown here at a farmers’ market in Costa Rica) are enjoyed in many parts of Latin America. Here is a recipe for tamarind pops that I learned in Costa Rica.
I personally am dying to try these rich, creamy kulfi pops from Global Table Adventure. They sound heavenly!
Another recipe at the top of my list is for these banana coconut pops from Zerbert. They can also be eaten like ice cream. I love all the variations you can do!
I love this unique recipe from Toddling in the Fast Lane for a juice pop with avocado. What a great way to give your kids some healthy fats!
For a real sweet treat, try these blueberry lemon pops from Creative Green Living…
…or her piña colada pudding pops (Creative Green Living). Can you guess what she is using for her popsicle handles?

…and Mama Smiles shares some fun and functional popsicle molds they use to make their favorite juice pops.
I must admit that when I asked my blogger friends for their popsicle ideas, I didn’t have crafts in mind – but only because it never occurred to me! Check out this adorable popsicle craft from Learn Create Love, and download the free printable!
