  • Place lids onto the popsicles or clear wrap with popsicle sticks inserted into the middle of the mold


  • I’ve had comments that say you can substitute milk for the ice cream
  • Another reader commented that she has always used sweetened condensed milk in place of the ice cream and a splash of vanilla extract – yum!

Serving amounts will vary –  for 1 can of soda plus 1-2 cups of ice cream should be about 6-8 popsicle molds
