Popsicles make a great treat for summertime and you can use nearly anything to make popsicles from plain juice popsicles to fruit and vegetable purees. You can even use simple popsicle molds to really get creative and have fun with nearly anything you can fit in the mold. Making your own popsicles is a great way to save on summer treats for your family.
Where can I get a popsicle mold?
Popsicle molds are seasonal items. You can often find cheap plastic molds at local dollar stores in the early spring but as the warm weather rolls in they disappear from shelves. For the best selection of quality popsicle molds, you want to shop online on sites like Amazon.
The best silicone popsicle molds
These open-face molds are one of my favorite styles. These are so much easier to get the popsicles out of and filling them evenly with things like slices of fresh fruit is so much easier so you no longer have to deal with clumps at the tip.
For layering popsicles, you need a standard upright popsicle mold. A silicon popsicle mold is so much easier to get the popsicles out of than the hard plastic ones that we used to have as kids that almost never let go of your popsicle without first melting much of it.

The best stainless steel popsicle molds
Stainless steel popsicle molds are great because the outer mold and remove from the stand after they are frozen to store more easily in the freezer and the popsicles are easy to warm just enough to remove from the molds quickly without having to wait with impatient children. Due to the cold condition qualities of stainless steel, these molds freeze faster as well.
