How to Make Popsicles At Home

What can be the most refreshing treat on a hot summer’s day? Many of you might come up with a different answer, but if given a choice, many of you would agree to eat a popsicle, which gives instant relief from heat.

However, no one would like to leave their air conditioned house to buy a popsicle, especially if the temperature is well over 100 degree Fahrenheit. Therefore, the best way is to make it yourself and enjoy the taste of whatever flavour you like the most. People of all age groups will love to have this delightful treat, but children in particular would enjoy it the most.

So, if you are a mother and your children are insisting to go out in the heat to get a popsicle, you don’t need to worry at all. There are a few simple steps, which will help you make this juicy treat at your home. You just need some basic ingredients and utensils, which are mentioned below before the recipe.


– Juice of your choice (see Step 1 or Tips for juice suggestions) – Amount is your discretion, as you are the one who knows how big and how many popsicle there should be

– 1 teaspoon sugar – Optional (1 teaspoon if you plan on filling the entire tray. Reduce amount accordingly)
