Pumpkin Pie Popsicles

posted on: Monday, November 8, 2010

This month I'm turning pumpkin pie on its head as part of the Side Car Series on Kitchen Play. Have you heard of Kitchen Play? It's a fun new site that teams up food bloggers and sponsors to create new recipes. NestlĂ© Kitchen is this month's sponsor serving up Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin and asking us to deconstruct the traditional pumpkin pie.

I don't love pumpkin pie. I like it alright. I like it more this year than last year, it's an acquired taste for sure specially for those of us who did not grow up in the United States feasting on Thanksgiving every year. I love the pumpkin pie filling, and the whip cream for sure and pie crusts are my favorite. It's just that the three together sometimes don't match up quite the way I like it. Needless to say I was stoked to create a variation of the traditional pumpkin pie.

I still wanted to have the pumpkin pie filling, the whip cream, and the crust all together but in a different way. Some people waffle iron everything, others make crazy cupcakes. I like to popsicle things, specially ingredients that are not traditionally made into popsicles. Enzo loved the big can of pumpkin pie mix and helped me come up with my creation, and our friend Lucy loved the result.

This is an easy recipe to make totally doable with kids.

Pumpkin Pie Popsicles
(printable version)
  • 1cup Libby's Pumpkin Pie mix
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 cup crushed graham crackers
  1. In a blender mix the heavy cream with sugar and cinnamon in high speed for 30 seconds. Place inside a large gallon sized plastic bag.
  2. Mix The cup of Libby's Pumpkin Pie Mix with the milk in a blender in high speed for 30 seconds. Place in a separate gallon sized plastic bag.
  3. Cup a small hole on one tip of the plastic bag that has the pumpkin mix. This will help you pour the mixture into your popsicle molds. 
  4. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the Popsicle molds 3/4 full.
  5. When the pumpkin mixture has frozen add the whip cream mixture by cutting a small hole on the plastic bag and pouring it until the Popsicle mold is completely full.
  6. Sprinkle crushed graham crackers on top of the whip cream and freeze.
  7. Serve when popsicles are completely frozen.
we made a couple variations.
They all tasted great.
At least the kids thought so.

This was a paid post sponsored by Kitchen Play.
The recipe is my own.
The opinions, also mine.


  1. These look delicious! I've never considered making a pumpkin pie into a popsicle before but I'll have to try it. And I even think there may already be popsicle trays somewhere in my parents' home -- I'll have to check over Thanksgiving.

  2. THis is the coolest post I have seen so far today, very cool and scrumptious

  3. I love pumpkin but am not always a fan of pumpkin pie either. I definitely feel it is an acquired taste even for some of us that grew up in America. I really want to try this! I will let you know when I do :) I am so happy to have met you this weekend. I think I can learn so much from you about including my twins in my cooking and healthy living as they grow up. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Looks like the kidos loved! will give this a go as we just recently purchased that same popsicle maker and our daughter is obsessed!!!
