Five homemade strawberry wine popsicles.

How to make popsicles

Popsicles are easy to make. After all, popsicles are basically just frozen juice. Puree the desired fruit or ingredients into liquid. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and insert popsicle sticks. Freeze the popsicles until solid, about 8 hours or overnight.

Wine popsicles

To make wine popsicles, simply add wine to the fruit puree. We use one cup of pinot noir for these strawberry popsicles. The pinot noir is the perfect complement to the strawberries. Choose the wine that pairs best with the fruit or ingredients you use for the popsicles. Red wine tastes best with berries. White wine tastes great with citrus, pineapple and other crisp fruit flavors.

Popsicle tips

  • Use a durable popsicle mold and popsicle sticks.
  • To remove the popsicles from the mold, run the mold under warm water for 30 seconds. The popsicles will release easily from the mold.
  • Always use seasonal or organic fruit that is ripe. Ripe fruit yields the best flavor.
  • Layer different types of mixtures in popsicle molds to make layered popsicles. Let each layer partially freeze before adding the next one.

How to store popsicles

You can leave the popsicles in the mold and take them out one by one when you are ready to eat them. Or you can store in a plastic freezer bag or airtight container.

To store in an airtight container, remove the popsicles from the mold, lay them on parchment paper and then refreeze until completely frozen. This method works best when your popsicles are eaten within a few weeks.
