Frugal Popsicle Ideas

Spring and summer are the best times for popsicles. Sitting on the front porch with the family on a warm evening, enjoying a popsicle, and watching the stars, was one of my favorite things when Skye and Zowie were little.

These popsicles are easy for children to make, though mom or dad may need to cut the fruit for them.

You can make popsicles from these drinks by simply pouring them into popsicle molds bought for $1 per set at a dollar tree, making these very frugal treats for everyone. Pull them out when you hear the ice cream truck approaching.

  1. hi
    i have a couple of great popsicle recipes that i think taste mmm good!
    mixed berry pops
    i used blueberries and raspberries but u could use what every fruit u have; i filled my molds by first layering the berries
    then i mixed up 1 1/2 c seltzer water, 2 Tablespoons honey,
    2 Tablespoons lemon juice, and poured it over the berries
    freeze for 4 hours then enjoy, mmmm:)

    chocolate-strawberry pops
    thinly slice some strawberries, and put in the bottoms of your pop molds, then put some chocolate chips on top of the strawberries, then fill with chocolate soy milk and freeze

    i have also taken any fruit fresh or frozen fruit and pureed them and then frozen it in pop molds-great for hot days!

    when my kids were younger, i took bits of cereal that were left in their bowls with the milk (even oatmeal) and poured that into pop molds and froze it-they thought that they tasted good and their friends even liked them! talk about frugal:)


    1. That would be great. In fact, anyone who wants to write a guest post for this blog can do so, with a bio. Just email me the post, edited, at Feel free to send as many as you like, as long as they stay with the theme of the blog, and that the link to your site/blog in the bio is appropriate for all audiences – as in Rated G.

      I looked at your link and it is a nice site. Do you mainly write for school teachers or homeschoolers?
