Simple Lemon Berry Popsicle

lemon berry popsicle

Summer is right around the corner. I thought I’d start experimenting with new popsicle recipes. As always, I prefer popsicle recipes that are simple and done with minimum effort. The recipe below uses fresh berries, but you could substitute frozen berries too. I suppose the name is a little misleading since it’s actually a lemonade berry popsicle. However, lemon berry sounded better, so I shortened it.

Below are some really cool and fun popsicle molds. You can find them in brick and mortar stores or online. All images are linked to my Amazon affiliate account.

Plastic popsicle molds

I love this Groovy Freezer Popsicle Mold set. It’s got a very vintage flare to it. It’s BPA free and dishwasher safe.

The Tovolo Star Ice Pop Mold are just too cute. This set of six molds will be perfect for your out-of-this world recipes. (Too corny?)

Okay, who wouldn’t want a rocket shaped popsicle? Forget the kids, these will be for me.

For simple fruit juice popsicles, these Norpro Ice Pop Maker would be great. They are BPA free, but handwashing is recommended.

Silicone popsicle molds

My kids would love anything I make with the Mastrad 4-Ice Pops. I’m thinking a creamsicle.

These push-up silicone molds are perfect for big or little hands. These drip-free molds are eight inches long, BPA-free, and dishwasher safe. Perfect for fruit juice or fruit purée.

Stainless steel molds

For an eco-friendly alternative to plastic molds, these Metro 18/8 Stainless Steel Popsicle molds come with its own rack for easy freezing and reusable bamboo popsicle sticks.

I’ve been eyeing the Zoku Quick Pop Maker for years. Every time I’m in Williams Sonoma, I just look at them. I love the idea of getting popsicles quicker, and so would my kids, but the price is kind of a deterrent for me right now. Well, one can dream.

Looking for more molds? My friend Jill at the Popsicle Blog has a great roundup of really fun popsicle molds. Stop by and check them out.
