Gummy Bears and Sprite Homemade Popsicle Recipe
Do your kids love a cool treat on summer days? Make these fun homemade popsicles with Sprite and gummy bears! Perfect for a birthday party, the last day of school, or as a cold treat on a warm afternoon. They couldn’t be more simple to make so get the kids in the kitchen to mix the ingredients and then place the ice pops in the freezer. If you’re unsure about adding this much sugar to a popsicle you can swap out the Sprite for a less sugary drink like lemon water.

But back to the homemade popsicle recipe…below you’ll find the ingredients and directions for this super simple recipe.
- 12 oz of Sprite (or lemon water)
- Gummy Bears
- Popsicle Mold
Pour gummy bears into each popsicle mold. Fill them about 1/4 way full.
Pour the Sprite over the gummy bears to fill the mold to the top.
Place the plastic sticks that came with the mold into the Sprite mixture. If you’re using wooden sticks wait about 30 minutes for the mixture to become slushy before placing the sticks in the molds.
Freeze the Sprite and gummy bear mix in the molds overnight.
If your popsicles are stuck in the molds here’s a tip:
To remove the popsicles, set the mold into warm water for about 15 seconds. This melts the outside of the popsicles just a little to release them from the mold.
Enjoy your sweet summer homemade popsicles! Aren’t they such a great way to cool down on a hot summer day?
