DIY Layered Popsicles

With just a trio of drinks, paper cups, and straws, you can create a tasty frozen treat that's cool for kids and grown-ups.


  • 3-oz. paper cups
  • Plate or tray (must fit on freezer shelf)
  • Sturdy drinking straws 
  • Coconut milk
  • Strawberry lemonade
  • Pomegranate juice

Step One

Arrange desired number of cups on a small plate or tray. Place
a straw inside each cup, then pour in about 1 oz. coconut milk. Transfer tray to the freezer, and allow your first layer to set (about 30 minutes).

Step Two

Remove tray from freezer, and add 1 oz. strawberry lemonade to the cups. Freeze for another 30 minutes, or until your second layer has set.

Step Three

Top your pops with a layer of pomegranate juice, and give them a final freeze of 30 to 40 minutes.

Step Four

When all the layers are solid, remove the pops from the freezer. If needed, trim straw length to make an easily grabbable handle. To loosen the cup, hold pop under warm water for a few seconds, turning it to gently melt the sides. Peel the cup off your frozen treat and enjoy!
