Make Your Own Popsicles at Home + Recipes

By making your own popsicles you save money and provide a healthier snack for your children because you control the ingredients. The Tupperware Ice Tups Set is reusable over and over again and is covered with a Lifetime Product Guarantee. Although I prefer the Tupperware popsicle molds, you can use any brand of plastic molds that you would like.

Here are a few recipes to get you started:

Kids Polar Pops

4 c. strawberries
1/3 c.Tropical Punch flavored sugar-sweetened soft drink mix

Rinse strawberries and remove stems. Place strawberries & flavored soft-drink mix in a blender container, cover & blend on low speed for 1 1/2 minutes or until smooth. Pour mixture into the Ice Tups Set Molds. Insert sticks and freeze for 3 hours.

Homemade Fudgesicles Recipe

1 4 oz. pkg. instant chocolate pudding
2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup canned evaporated milk

Combine the pudding and 2 cups milk. Beat for 2 minutes. Stir in sugar and canned milk. Pour in to popsicle molds. Freeze.

Frozen Pear Pops

1 (16 oz.) can pear halves, drained
1 (8 oz.) plain yogurt
3 tbsp. honey
1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
Few drops almond extract

In blender container combine pears, yogurt, honey, lemon juice and almond extract. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into the Tupperware Mickey Ice Tups Set to make popcicles. Freeze 4 to 6 hours.

Cookies 'N Cream Frozen Pops

1 cup Cool Whip
12 Oreo Cookies - crushed
1/2 cup milk
1 4 serving pack of Vanilla Instant Pudding

Mix above ingredients together and pour the Tupperware Mickey Ice Tups set to make popcicles. Freeze for 4-5 hours before serving.

Strawberry Frozen Pops

1 small box of strawberry flavored gelatin
1 pint of hot water
1 pint of vanilla ice cream, softened

In a Tupperware Thatsa Bowl, dissolve the gelatin with the hot water. Stir in the ice-cream using the Saucy Silicone Spatula. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze until frozen, approximately 4-5 hours.

uhh.. i love tupperware. I let my kids use them, for their food. There is this one that I especially recommend to any mom who got small kids that are learning to eat by themselves, that is the one with lid and holder which can put inside the microwave for reheating, not sure what is the exact name though.
