Easy Key Lime Pie Push Pops | Cupcake Project

Easy Key Lime Pie Push Pops

I made these key lime pie push pops using a recipe for key lime pie ice cream found on Sugar Cooking (adapted from Cooking Light).  This recipe is EASY!  Dump all of the ingredients into one bowl, transfer to push pop molds, and freeze!  The best part is that the result tastes just like key lime pie!  It’s tart, not overly sweet, and has bits of graham cracker mixed throughout.  While the recipe is enjoyable as ice cream (I tried it that way, too), and it would be fantastic as a popsicle, making the recipe as push pops adds a whole other level of fun.  Push pops (like cupcakes) make you feel like a kid, ready to jump in the air and click your heels together screaming, “Yabadabadoo!”   Why, at 35, am I just now discovering the joy of push pops?

Where To Get Push Pop Molds

My push pop molds were a gift from Etsy seller CupKate.  I love how, unlike popsicle molds, the push pop molds have a built-in pop condom, protecting your clothing from inevitable drips.  The push pop molds also have lids so you can easily save some for later (although once you pop, you can’t stop!).

Head over to CupKate’s page to purchase some of your own. CupKate will also be hosting a push pop mold giveaway for my readers next week, so be sure to check back!

    Ever since I saw those push pops on Etsy I’ve been dreaming of making push-ups. They were my favorite treat at the pool snack bar when I was little. I can’t wait to try your recipe!

    These look so fun! I make key lime pie gelato and it’d be so cute to toss it into these molds. Instead of crushed graham cracker, though, I use the Vanilla Graham Cracker Goldfish. They are so delicious!

    These sound wonderful Stef. As a kid I loved push pops. The flavor then was a Dreamcicle which is still my favorite. Makes me want to make them now that the warm weather is approaching.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Happy Mother’s Day!

    I Carole! Thanks so much for checking out my Etsy site. The Push Pops have sold out in a flash once again. I am expecting new shipment on or before Friday, May 20th. I want to make sure I get these to anyone who wants them, so feel free to contact me for a pre-order. Thanks again! -Kate
