How To Get Your Popsicles To Release From The Mold
I once had a friend tell me she had the hardest time making homemade popsicles. “They always tasted delicious,” she said, “but how the heck do you get them out of the molds? We ended up eating them with a spoon!”
So if you don’t know the mom hack all you have to do is run your homemade popsicle under a bit of warm water for a few seconds, and they should pop right out. Not too long because of course then you would have slurry again, but just a few seconds and the pop comes right out easy peasy.
This warm water trick is especially important for these Easter egg popsicles. The shape of the eggs mixed with the liquid inside expanding and the popsicle is going to be hard to open.
I gave mine a good yank open thinking the eggs would just pop open, but they don’t.
A few seconds of warm water will make you supermom as the kids are jumping up and down wanting one of these Easter pops!
To make these fun Easter Egg Smoothie popsicles you will also need-
- 6 plastic Easter eggs (I busted one accidentally so I used seven. Whoops!)
- 6 lollipop sticks or wooden popsicle sticks
- something pointy like a pen or a chopstick to make holes in your eggs
- a squeeze bottle– I found mine at the dollar store but I linked to one on Amazon in case you need one.
Most plastic easter eggs are not recyclable and let’s be honest they are everywhere. This project is a way to reuse those eggs during or even long after Easter.

What Other Fillings Can I Put In My Easter Egg Popsicles?
If you don’t have all the ingredients in this recipe, no worries! This recipe is really flexible.
Swaps For The Berries
You can swap out other flavors of fruit.
Swaps For The Coconut Milk
In place of coconut milk, you can swap any of the following ingredients one for one.
- Regular dairy milk
- Almond milk
- Fruit juice
Swaps For The Banana
If you are swapping out the banana in this recipe your recipe will be slightly less creamy. You can substitute with additional fruit, but the end result will be more like a fruit juice popsicle and less like a creamy popsicle.
Other Great Additions To This Recipe
- 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter or other nut butter
- 1-2 tablespoons of nutella or chocolate hazelnut spread
- 1-2 tablespoons cocoa or cocoa mix (if using unsweetened, taste before freezing to see if more sweetener is needed.)
My popsicles seem not as sweet now that I swapped a few ingredients. What happened?
If you are making swaps to this recipe, you may want to taste just a little bit before freezing for the sweetness level. Sometimes when you swap ingredients the recipe won’t be as sweet.
Try adding honey a tablespoon at a time. Sugar that has been mixed in well to dissolve it in your mix could also be used in a pinch.
Can I Use Anything Else To Make An Egg Shaped Popsicle?
You could also use a silicone egg mold like this one which has a fun design also. These pans can be used for other treats too, you’d just need to add a stick before freezing.
