The Latest and Greatest in BPA-free Popsicle Molds

Summer kicked in early this year over here in Portland, Oregon. Short sleeve weather, in May? In Portland? That’s something to celebrate. Audrey and I knew exactly what we needed to do: make popsicles. I didn’t have any fruit juice, tofu, or spinach around, so I had to get creative. (Check out our strawberry and spinach popsicles and tofu fudgcicles if you dare.)

I whipped up some lemonade out of sugar, lemon juice concentrate, and water. I know I’m not going to win any dentists over with that concoction, but kids love it. We then dropped in some various frozen berries I’ve probably had in the freezer since 2008. We used our only fancy popsicle mold, which is something like these Push Pop containers ($25).

These popsicle molds are BPA-free, unlike our other 1980s molds. Our previous BPA-free popsicle mold posts get a lot of hits, so I thought I’d see what’s new on the scene in 2013.

Silicone Ice Pop Maker molds ($14.99). Fill them with smoothies, ice cream, spinach, whatever! These seem like an ingenious addition to our collection.


Onyx Stainless Steel popsicle molds. Wow. The Rolls Royce of popsicle molds at $34.99. A good choice if you’re avoiding plastic as much as possible. (I see I mentioned this one in my 2011 post, so I guess these aren’t really the newest popsicle mold on the block.)

Push-up pop containers in a heart shape for $24.95. Very cute. I can see using these around Valentine’s Day, too.

Zoku slow pops ($17.50) win the award for the most innovative popsicle mold. (This is not a real award. I just made that up.) These are adorable! I like the idea of mini pops for light eaters like my daughter, who never seems to finish an entire popsicle.

Now does anyone have the Zoku quick pop maker? It’s almost fifty dollars, but it makes popsicles in just minutes! Our neighbor has one and treats the kids to popsicles all the time. For serious popsicle fans.

Are you into the latest innovations in popsicle technology, or do you go for the toothpicks-in-ice trays method? Let us know where you stand!



  1. I like the idea of the home-made push-up pops. I used to love those as a kid!

  2. I just learned of a recipe on FB that would be perfect for push-up pops! Blend together 1 jar of smooth peanut butter with 3 very ripe bananas and 1/3 C unsweetened almond milk in with a hand blender. Freeze.

    The FB poster said she’s heard you can use sweet potato, banana and almond butter too. That one sounds super healthy!

  3. Geez, how many popsicles does that make? A whole JAR of peanut butter? I would love those.
