Pink Lemonade Popsicle RecipeBombay is boiling. The heat is not letting up and we are hoping and praying that the rains arrive soon. Just so we get a break from the blazing heat. But till then, we’re relying on everything cold. That means ice creams, sodas, juices, yoghurt and my latest obsession – pink lemonade popsicles! They’re the perfect solution to a hot day and we’ve been experimenting with quite a few recipes recently. One which really stood out was for these Pink Lemonade Popsicles. They are super easy to make and a complete life saver on a scorching day. Here’s how it’s done!

Pink Lemonade Popsicles

Time: 5 mins to prep, 7-8 hours to freeze

Budget: Low

Servings: 12 pink lemonade popsicles


  • Popsicle Container*
  • 1/4 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4-5 cups of water
  • 1 pitcher

*If you don’t have a popsicle container, feel free to use dixie cups and popsicle sticks. They work, just as well. You just need to freeze them a bit longer.

How to make Pink Lemonade Popsicles

To make things a little more interesting, we wanted to give the popsicles a stronger flavour in certain areas. So, we get a punch of flavour at random. That’s why you’ll see a shaded effect on the popsicles. But, if you would like to have a consistent pink lemonade flavour, feel free to follow the second set of steps given below.

Easy Popsicle Recipe

Steps for the shaded pink lemonade popsicles:

  1. Mix half of your lemon juice, sugar and water in a pitcher to make regular lemonade.
  2. Fill each of the containers about half way and put them in the freezer for about 2-3 hours. Do not put in the sticks.
  3. Mix the remaining sugar, lemon juice and water to make a second batch of lemonade. Add the cranberry juice and give it a whirl.
  4. Pour the pink lemonade carefully over the first layer of lemonade.
  5. Place the sticks and pop it in the freezer to chill.

On the other hand, if you would like the same flavour throughout the lemonade popsicles,

  1. Mix all of the cranberry juice, lemon juice, sugar and water in a pitcher.
  2. Fill the containers all the way to the top and place the sticks
  3. Place in the freezer to chill.


  • If you usually add salt to your lemonade, I would recommend using a teeny tiny amount of what you usually add. The taste of salt is usually heightened in ice and you don’t want the popsicles to taste too salty.
  • Make sure you don’t fill the containers so much that the flow over the sticks. It makes them harder to pop out.
  • If this popsicles are melting or not quite set, that’s completely okay! Just scrape them into a glass and you have a slushy instead! (I may or may not have done that with my cousins the other day haha!)
