I have been making a lot of popsicles lately and wanted to try something different. I thought that a Shirley Temple popsicle would be delicious. I used a naturally flavored carbonated water. There was no calories or artificial sweeteners. The kids loved it. They keep asking when I am going to make more!

Approximate Time: a few minutes, plus freezing time

Yield: as many as you would like


  • Maraschino cherries & syrup
  • carbonated water The one (I used cherry flavored)
maraschino cherries


  1. Pour some maraschino cherry syrup into your popsicle molds. I filled mine about 1/4 of the way.
  2. pouring juice in mold
  3. Plop in a cherry or two.
  4. dropping cherries in mold
  5. Fill the rest of the mold with your carbonated water. Don't fill all the way, to make room for the mixture to expand while freezing.
  6. juice in mold
  7. Add your popsicle tops.
  8. tops on filled molds
  9. Freeze for a few hours until completely frozen.
  10. finished popsicle

These pops have real pieces of fruit in them. They also have little pieces of coconut. They are very easy to make, as well.

Yield: 6 pops


  • 14 oz can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup

  1. In a bowl, stir the coconut milk, agave syrup, salt and zest. Then stir in the fruit.
  2. Refrigerate for AT LEAST an hour to prevent crystals from forming.

Easy! Freeze pure fruit juice or sugar-free koolaid in either popsicle molds or paper cups with popsicle sticks.

I saw a photograph of this in an online search. I think this is a wonderful way to get children eating more fruit and I can make these with sugar-free Jelly granules as I am a diabetic. I am going to make a big batch for myself and my nieces and nephews. I hope you enjoy making and more importantly, eating them!


  • 1 package of any flavor Jello
  • 1 cup of fruit
  • Popsicle molds


Prepare the Jello according to the package. Cut the fruit into bite sized pieces and place into the mold. Fill with Jello in the liquid state. Place in freezer for at least four hours before devouring. Makes 6

We have been eating those yummy jello cups you can buy at the grocery store that come in multi-packs. I have been reusing the little cups to make ice pops, and using the thousand and one pop sticks we have to make pops out of them.

I just fill the little emply jello cups with water and then plop a teaspoon or two or whole frozen blueberries. Then I plop a plastic stick in there and freeze. They have been a huge hit. They are the perfect pop container as the pop comes out easily. They are also easier to get out of the mold. I put the little plastic pop holders at a sideway angle so they won't pull out of the pop. We love it!

I have resigned myself to paying more for wholesome food. Although blueberries at first glance are expensive, they are awesome brain food.

    These are made from juice you've already paid for, and fairly healthy popsicles. I freeze the juice from canned fruit in popsicle molds. I also use the liquid that forms in a bowl of cut watermelon. My kids love them and they keep me from wasting the extra juices.

    Homemade popsicles made from fruit juice are much more economical and healthier than pops bought from the store. And if you are just a little bit creative, you can make layers, and combinations that are fun for your kids.
