What Are Raspberry Popsicles?

A Raspberry Popsicle is essentially a frozen treat that merges fresh or frozen raspberries’ natural sweetness and tartness with a creamy, dreamy texture.

These popsicles offer a delightful contrast – the refreshing taste of ripe raspberries against the velvety richness of a sweetened condensed milk base.

So, you get a dessert that satisfies your sweet cravings and provides a cooling sensation that is perfect in hot weather.

Is a Popsicle the Same as Sorbet?

Now, both popsicles and sorbets fall under the frozen dessert category but have distinct differences.

Popsicles typically contain a creamy element, like milk or yogurt, resulting in a smoother and richer texture.

Sorbets, on the other hand, are dairy-free and consist primarily of fruit puree, water, and sugar.

With their creamy consistency, homemade raspberry popsicles offer a delightful mix of the two, blending the freshness of sorbets with the indulgence of creamy popsicles. Yum, am I right?

Tips for Making Homemade Raspberry Popsicles

To create a perfect batch of raspberry popsicles, you need a bit of patience and mastering of certain techniques. Keep reading to find out what these are.

For an extra smooth texture, strain the raspberry purée with a fine mesh strainer or blender before mixing it with the sweetened condensed milk to remove seeds.

You can create beautiful layered popsicles by switching between the raspberry mixture and additional elements like chocolate or crushed nuts.

Taste your raspberry purée before adding sweetened condensed milk. Depending on the sweetness of your berries, you might want to adjust the amount of sweetener to achieve the perfect balance.

If you’re creating layered popsicles, consider freezing each layer for a short time before adding the next, which helps maintain distinct layers without blending the colors too much.

How long do these raspberry popsicles with fresh raspberries last in the freezer?

In general, homemade popsicles can last in the freezer for about 1 to 2 months. However, for the best flavor and texture, it’s recommended to consume them within the first month.

If stored in an airtight container or wrapped tightly with plastic wrap, raspberry popsicles can maintain their quality for a longer period, which helps prevent the formation of ice crystals, in turn affecting the texture and taste of the popsicles.

Can you make popsicles without popsicle molds?

Certainly! Making popsicles without a traditional popsicle mold is not only possible but can be a creative and resourceful way to enjoy homemade frozen treats.

You can use common household items such as small disposable cups or molds (e.g., paper cups, plastic cups, silicone cupcake molds), wooden popsicle sticks or plastic spoons, plastic wrap or aluminum foil.

How do I prevent the raspberry seeds from ending up in the popsicles?

After blending the raspberries into a smooth consistency, pass the puree through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth to separate the seeds from the liquid.

This extra step will result in a silky-smooth raspberry mixture for your popsicles.

Can I make dairy-free or vegan raspberry popsicles?

Absolutely! Homemade raspberry popsicles can easily be adapted to suit a dairy-free or vegan lifestyle. Instead of using traditional dairy-based ingredients like yogurt or milk, opt for plant-based alternatives such as coconut milk, almond milk, or soy milk.

These alternatives provide a creamy texture and contribute to a luscious mouthfeel without the use of dairy.

  • Heart-shaped popsicle molds
  • Blender or food processor
  • Sieve (optional, for straining seeds)


  • 7 ounces (approx. 200g) fresh raspberries, washed
  • ¼ cup (about 2 ounces) condensed milk


  • Place the washed raspberries in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. If you prefer a smoother texture without seeds, strain the raspberry puree through a sieve.
  • Pour the raspberry puree into a bowl. Gradually add condensed milk, stirring constantly. Taste the mixture as you go, adding more condensed milk until you reach the desired sweetness and creamy consistency
  • Carefully pour the raspberry and condensed milk mixture into the heart-shaped popsicle molds. If your molds have sticks, insert them now. If not, freeze the popsicles for about an hour until they're just set enough to hold a stick upright, then insert a popsicle stick into each one.
  • Place the filled molds in the freezer. Freeze for at least 4-6 hours, or ideally overnight, to ensure the popsicles are fully set.
