These little Easter egg lollies just add so much color and fun. serve them to a group, or pop one out of the freezer one or three at a time for your kids.

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 simply 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 smoothie 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-
- six plastic Easter eggs (I busted one accidently so I used seven. Whoops!)
- six lollipop sticks or 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.
What About Eco-friendly Eggs?
Most plastic easter eggs are not recyclable and let’s be honest they are everywhere. This project is a way to reuse those eggs. If you are looking for alternatives, or are looking for other ways to make these eggs, here are a few more ideas to swap out for this activity.
Eco Eggs are both compostable and BPA free. They are one of the few options on the market
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.
Easter Egg Smoothie Popsicles
- 1.5 cup mixed strawberries and raspberries
- 1 cup coconut milk
- .5 banana
In a blender, blend strawberries, coconut milk and banana until liquidy with no chunks of fruit.
Line up your eggs so the pointies side of the eggs face down. Using a chopstick or a pen, poke a hole in each plastic egg on the wider side of the egg. Wash well after.
Fill a squeeze bottle with smoothie mix. Make sure your eggs are closed tightly, then carefully fill each Easter egg with the smoothie mixture.
Add a lollipop stick to each egg in the hole in the egg.
Freeze Easter Egg Smoothie Popsicles for a minimum of six hours, preferably overnight!
We may have to make another round of this Easter Egg popsicle recipe now. It’s been declared an Easter tradition after all! 🙂
