Use fresh raspberries to make this very easy recipe for Raspberry Popsicles! It’s the perfect summer popsicle recipe. We certainly need good popsicle recipes in the summer, don’t we?
Before you start, sample your raspberries to make sure that they are ripe and sweet. You can certainly use frozen raspberries, but they won’t be as good as the fresh.
Popsicles aren’t just for kids anymore. You can enjoy a delicious popsicle to cool you off during a hot day. It’s the best treat!

How to make Raspberry Popsicles:
The complete, printable recipe is at the end of this post.
- Purée all of the ingredients in a food processor.
- Strain the purée using a fine sieve. Throw away the seeds but keep the raspberry juice liquid.
- Pour the raspberry liquid into popsicle molds. (I use star-shaped ones).
- Put the tops on, and they’re ready to freeze.
Try making them on a hot summer day!
Can you make popsicles without popsicle molds?
Yes! They’re pretty cheap to buy on Amazon, but if you don’t have any then you can use cups instead. Just pour the liquid into cups and place a stick inside each cup. That’ll work, but it’s much better to have the molds. Places like Walmart should be selling them fairly inexpensive this time of year.
I think that you should make this recipe because everyone (especially the kids) will love them. Could you imagine your kid walking through the front door with a friend on a hot summer day and asking for a popsicle? I used to make these when my son was little, and when he brought neighborhood friends over to play then they were able to have a healthy, homemade treat. They loved them!
Can you use this recipe to make other popsicle flavors?
Sure! Maybe try strawberry, blackberry, peach and watermelon. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy!

- Two 6-ounce baskets raspberries
- ⅓ cup water
- ⅓ cup granulated white sugar
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- In a food processor, puree all ingredients until smooth. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a medium bowl; strain- pressing on the solids to allow the liquid to come through into the bowl. Pour the liquid puree into a pitcher or a large measuring cup with a pouring spout (throw out the seeds that get stuck in the strainer). Pour the raspberry liquid into popsicle molds. Cover and insert the sticks.
- Freeze until firm.
- When you're ready to eat one, run the bottoms of the molds under warm water for 20 to 30 seconds to loosen the popsicle from the mold. Remove it from the mold and eat immediately!
