Some days a milkshake is all you need to stay cool, other days only an ice pop will do. These chai popsicles are wonderfully fragrant, perfect to end off a rich Indian meal of complex flavors or to punctuate a lazy summer afternoon. They’re super easy to put together—once you’ve made the basic mix for our Chai Frozen Milkshakes, all you need are pop molds and a little patience.

Special equipment: You’ll need freezer pop molds for this recipe. We used these molds, but any kind will work. If yours don’t come with sticks that attach securely, you can buy wooden sticks instead.

  • Yields: 6 (2-ounce) ice pops
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Total: 15 mins, plus at least 6 hrs freezing time

Ingredients (1)

  • 1 recipe Chai Frozen Milkshakes, omitting the whipped cream and ground cinnamon garnish


  1. Follow the instructions for Chai Frozen Milkshakes through step 6, ignoring the part about making whipped cream.
  2. Pour even amounts of the milkshake mixture into the freezer pop molds. Tap the molds a few times on the counter to release any bubbles. Insert the sticks and freeze until solid, at least 6 hours.
