7 Dixie-Cup Popsicles You Cannot Fail at Making

Even with a faulty freezer and Murphy's Law in full effect, these still came out gorgeous.


watermelon-lime pops
Watermelon-Lime Pops
Place 3 cups cubed, seedless watermelon in a blender with 1/4 cup lime juice and 1 teaspoon sugar. Blend until liquified and pour into cups. Top with lime slices, and use 'em to keep the popsicle sticks upright. Freeze overnight.




banana pudding pops
Banana Pudding Pops
Make one package of instant vanilla pudding according to package's instructions (basically, add milk and stir), then pour it into Dixie cups, layering pudding, crushed vanilla wafers and banana slices until the cup is full. Add a popsicle stick to each one and freeze overnight.




mango-pineapple pops
Mango-Pineapple Pops
Empty one can cubed pineapple (14 ounces) into a blender, along with 1 peeled, cubed mango and 1 cup of water. Add a teaspoon of lemon juice, then puree. Fill Dixie Cups two-thirds of the way full, then add in a few pieces of mango and pineapple. Insert a popsicle stick in each one—you can create a grid on top of each cup using tape to hold the sticks upright—and freeze.



peanut butter-chocolate overload pops
Peanut Butter-Chocolate Overload Pops
Alternate layers of chocolate pudding, Nutella, and creamy peanut butter in a Dixie Cup, popping in a few chopped, mini Reese's Cups to really take things over-the-top. Insert a popsicle stick in each one and freeze. (Peanut butter alone can be dense—and almost fudgy once frozen—so if you'd prefer a lighter treat, mix 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter with 1 cup of Cool Whip, and use that as a layer instead.)



strawberry-granola breakfast pops
Strawberry-Granola Breakfast Pops
Layer strawberry yogurt, granola (we like this homemade version), and quartered strawberries in Dixie Cups. Top with popsicle sticks and freeze.







shark week pops
Shark Week Pops
Pour Cool Blue Gatorade into Dixie Cups, filling each one two-thirds of the way up, then sprinkle in shark gummies, mini gummy bears, and Swedish fish. The blue sharks will blend into the pops, which makes for an awesome surprise as they melt. (Bonus points if you choose sour gummies—the tangy jolt of flavor is almost as shocking as the fact that there's a Sharknado 3.)



raspberry lemonade pops
Raspberry Lemonade Pops
Pour raspberry lemonade into Dixie Cups, then add a few raspberries. Top with a lemon slice, jam a popsicle stick in each one and freeze.
