Top 10 popsicle shapes for homemade popsicles

These are my top popsicle mold options for making popsicles for your kids quickly, healthy, and delicious!

My kids love popsicles and would eat them every day. And I usually leave them because I make my own popsicles and they’re almost always just fruit! It’s easy to add veggies or other healthy add-ins when making your own. I know my kids will eat more fruits and vegetables if I have homemade popsicles in my freezer. The key to making a really great homemade popsicle is not just in the recipe, but in the type of popsicle you use. Read on for our top 10 popsicle shapes and how they compare.

The easiest way to make homemade popsicles

We make smoothies almost every day, but often we don’t finish the entire batch. When you have your own popsicle shapes, you never have to waste any leftover smoothie!

Just pour what you don’t eat into the mold and eat the popsicle later. Sometimes kids don’t like the texture of a smoothie or don’t drink it right away. If it’s frozen in popsicle, kids may find it more exciting and accessible. I’ve found my kids eat almost every smoothie this way, regardless of color.

What Are the Best Popsicle Molds to Buy?

We have put together our top 10 popsicle shapes for you. I use them in different situations for different recipes depending on what I’m doing and of course which kids are eating the popsicle. There are some popsicle shapes that are more suitable for smaller children because of your child’s size or how much they grip the handle.
