These lavender lemonade popsicles are refreshing, fragrant, and not too sweet.

Yeah, I’m on a bit of a lavender dessert kick lately.

My site name has “lavender” in it, and I have this huge bag of culinary lavender that beckons me whenever I open the pantry door, so expect lavender recipes at least once a week until I use it up. Jk.

Anyway, I’ve had the idea for these popsicles for ages, and I’m so glad they worked.

These popsicles are a lovely shade of light pink! I was pleased with the color when I made these for the first time, but I have to say that I was not expecting it. I was imagining these would be a light purple color, but I guess the lemon juice mixed in with the steeped lavender changed it pink. I’m just glad they didn’t end up an unappealing murky shade of brown!

I think these popsicles would appeal to adults more than kids, but you never know. The lavender flavor comes through boldly but isn’t too much. These popsicles would totally work for one of those perfectly orchestrated garden parties that you see in fancy magazines. Naturally I host those every week. Riiiight.

Lavender lemonade popsicles are really easy to make and only require four ingredients. You can buy lavender from Amazon if you’re not sure where to buy it locally.

This is the popsicle mold I used for this recipe.

Do you like using flowers in cooking? I also love anything rose in food!

Lavender Lemonade Popsicles

Deliciously fragrant lavender lemonade popsicles!
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Freeze time: 6 hours
Total: 6 hours 15 minutes
Servings: 10 (3 oz.) popsicles


  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup culinary lavender
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Juice of 2 large lemons


  • Boil water (I just use a small pan) and steep the lavender in it for 10 minutes (I use 2 paper tea filters to make this easy. You could use a fine sieve or other kind of tea strainer as well).
  • Meanwhile, juice the lemons.
  • Once lavender has finished steeping in the water, remove the lavender and stir in the sugar and lemon juice until sugar is dissolved.
  • Pour the mixture into the popsicle mold, leaving a little bit of room at the top of each compartment. You'll likely find it difficult to insert the sticks right away (especially if they're wooden sticks), so wait 2-3 hours and insert them then. Freeze popsicles for at least another 4 hours (or overnight).
  • To remove the popsicles from the mold, I fill the sink with hot water and dunk the frozen part in it for about 10 seconds so they release easily. I recommend storing the popsicles in a large Ziploc rather than keeping them in the mold.


  • Tip: I transfer the liquid from the pan into a measuring cup so I can easily pour it into the mold.
  • This is the popsicle mold I used to make these.

    1. Thanks, Emily! I think lavender tea should work. If it’s pure lavender tea, it should turn out very similar since they use the same lavender buds usually. It could turn out a bit less strong, but I see no reason why you couldn’t give it a go. 🙂

  1. I love the floral aspect of these – a favorite in our house are rose scented raspberry popsicles so I know we’d love these!

  2. I love this idea! I am into lavender too, and this is such a pretty, grown up popsicle! Pinning!
