Sharing is caring!

This is a refreshing treat for a hot summer day that our family really enjoys. Diet soda can be used to cut calories. We often refer to them as Pop Pops.


  • 1 (20 ounce) bottle vanilla cream soda
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


Pour cream soda into a bowl and whisk until no longer bubbly; set aside.

Heat water and sugar in a saucepan over medium high heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes.

Stir sugar mixture and vanilla extract into the cream soda.

Pour mixture into small plastic cups or ice pop molds, then insert wooden ice pop sticks. Freeze until firm.
