Shirley Temple Popsicles

Turn a favourite drink into popsicles!  These Shirley Temple Popsicles are delicious and easy to make!

I don’t know about you, but for me, popsicles are the ultimate fun summer treat! And I love them even more now that we make them at home. Only because there are SO many fun recipes to try, and so many great popsicle molds to use! The kids are all over this fun experiment!

Shirley Temple Popsicles

As a kid, one of my most favourite drinks was a Shirley Temple. I remember being at our cabin, and my Grandma making these fun drinks for all us grandkids. I always felt so grown up sipping one!  Such great memories!

Shirley Temples

So recently I had a hankering for a Shirley Temple, and thought my kids would love to try one! Then I thought, they would make an amazing popsicle! And indeed they do! These were an all around hit for adults and kids alike!

Perfect for summer.  Refreshing. Flavourful. Delish!


Shirley Temples Drinks and Popsicles

This recipe makes 1 drink.  If you double the recipe it will make 6 popsicles.


  • 1 cup lemon-lime soda (I used 7-Up)
  • 2 tbsp Grenadine
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • cherry for garnish (fresh or Maraschino)


For the Shirley Temple Drink:

  1. Fill a glass with ice.
  2. Add the soda, Grenadine, and the Orange Juice. Stir.
  3. Garnish with a cherry, either a fresh cherry or a Maraschino cherry.

For the Shirley Temple Popsicles:

  1. For the popsicles, I doubled the recipe and filled my 6 popsicle moulds.
  2. I pitted, then chopped up about 10 fresh cherries and distributed them evenly between the popsicle moulds. They give the popsicles a nice texture! I might even add more next time.

    It’s gotta be a maraschino cherry – they were the best part!

    Um… how good would these be? Not only are they refreshing, they’re adorable, too! I’m going to have to break the no soda rule and make some of these for my daughter and me this summer! I hope you’ll stop by and link up at Off the Hook.

    These look perfect! I use my Zoku all the time and this is a perfect recipe to use in it. At our wedding, all of the kids were enjoying their Shirley Temples and this is the perfect reminder of that occasion for me. Love it!
