2. Oreo Frozen Pops
We can make any ice cream oreo-flavored! I don't think a frozen pop can go wrong with Oreos - they are chocolaty, creamy, and delicious - nothing matches their level.
Try this oreo-flavored frozen pops recipe with ingredients only.
- Oreo cookies (20)
- Heavy whipping cream (1 cup + 1/2 cup)
- Milk (1 cup)
- Chocolate bar (1)
Crush oreo cookies in a food processor, add milk and whipping cream, and blend for 30 seconds.
Transfer the mixture to ice cream molds and stick ice cream sticks. Freeze for 6 hours.
To make the chocolate sauce, heat the remaining half cup of whipping cream and put shredded chocolate in it. Whisk until it dissolves and let it cool down.
Dip the ice cream in the chocolate sauce, chill for 30 minutes, and serve. Use a mini dinner set for serving.
3. Chocolate Fudge Pops
Chocolate is everyone's favorite, and you can't go wrong with chocolate ice cream. Try this delicious chocolate fudge popsicle recipe that's chocolaty and chilled.
- Milk (3 cups + 3 tbsp)
- Corn flour (1 1/2 tbsp)
- Cocoa powder (2 tbsp)
- Granulated sugar (7 tbsp)
Dissolve corn starch in 3 tablespoons of milk. Bring the rest of the milk to a gentle simmer and add cocoa powder and sugar. Whisk until the sugar dissolves.
Now pour the dissolved corn starch into boiling milk and whisk continuously for a minute.
Transfer the mixture into a container and cover with plastic wrap. The cling wrap should touch the surface of the milk because we don't want the milk cream to form a layer on top.
Once it has cooled down, transfer it to ice cream molds, stick ice cream sticks in them, and freeze for 12 hours.
4. Rainbow Frozen Popsicles
Kids love colors and ice cream, so we combined both to make delicious frozen popsicles.

- Kiwi (1 cup)
- Caster sugar (3 tbsp)
- Ice cream molds
Put strawberries in a food processor. Add one tablespoon of sugar to it and blend until it forms a puree. Pour it into a bowl.
Clean the food processor before the next step. Cleaning is essential as we don't want the colors to mix.
Put mangoes and one tablespoon of sugar in the food processor and make mango puree. Transfer the puree to a bowl.
Clean the food processor.
Put kiwi and one tablespoon caster sugar in the cleaned food processor and make a puree. Transfer it to a bowl.
