Cookies & Cream Popsicles

I ventured into the world of popsicle making earlier this summer when I bought some traditional pop molds and made Mexican Chocolate Popsicles.  

Yesterday, my daughters gave me a Zoku Quick Pop Maker for my birthday.  After looking through the Zoku Quick Pops recipe book, my girls and I decided we had to make cookies & cream popsicles.  The problem was that the recipe in the book called for using ingredients like vanilla pudding, which didn't interest me, so I made up my own recipe after doing some research online.  

We were able to make 7 whole pops and a partial pop with the mix I put together tonight. 

I haven't had cookies & cream ice cream since my celiac diagnosis over six years ago, so these popsicles were a much welcomed treat.  I ended up eating two of them, and could have easily eaten three!

Cookies & Cream Popsicles (Zoku Version)


1 1/2 C half and half
4 gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies
3 T sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Place all the ingredients in a blender or NutriBullet, and blend until well combined.  Chill the mixture for at least 30 minutes.

Whisk the pop mixture before filling your pop molds.  If using a Zoku Quick Pop Maker, follow the directions included with the pop maker.

Recipe Notes

This recipe should make 4 to 8 popsicles, depending upon the size of your pop molds.

I used Gluten Free Joe-Joe's from Trader Joe's.

My Zoku Quick Pop Maker was purchased from Williams-Sonoma.  It took about 10 minutes to freeze the first batch of popsicles.  The other two batches took a minute or two longer.

August 26, 2014 Update

Today, I made cookies & cream popsicles in my 4 ounce traditional pop molds from Tovolo.  This recipe makes 6 popsicles.

Cookies & Cream Popsicles (Traditional Pop Molds Version)


2 C half & half
1/4 C heavy cream
6 gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies
1/4 C sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla


Place all the ingredients in a blender or NutriBullet, and blend until well combined.  Fill your pop molds, and freeze your popsicles for at least 4 to 6 hours.

Recipe Notes

The first time I made cookies & cream popsicles in my traditional pop molds, I just used half & half, but they were a little bit icy, so I added some heavy cream to make them creamier like the pops I make quickly in my Zoku.
