How to make Easy Homemade Popsicle without popsicle molds

 

There are various ways to make homemade popsicles with or without popsicle molds.

 

If you don’t have a popsicle mold handy, you can use the following;

  • Disposable paper or plastic cups
  • Muffin tins, make sure to use a liner like a parchment paper.
  • Yogurt container
  • Loaf pan (line the pan with parchment, freeze for 30mins, insert the popsicle stick and freeze overnight, slice into wedges or cubes and enjoy),
  • Cupcake liners, see an example here
  • Shot glasses- As soon as the pops are firm, remove from mold and let stand in the freezer on a tray or bowl, so the glass doesn’t crack.
  • Ice cube trays

 

Please be sure to cover the top with aluminum foil and freeze for 20-30mins before inserting the popsicle sticks, so they stay in place. To unmold, run under warm water for 10-15 seconds, then gently pull the sticks.

 

If you’d rather use a popsicle mold to achieve those store-bought sculpted lines like the one in the picture below, you can get this budget-friendly one here or the silicon one I used here.
