This seasonal ice cream pop recipe comes to us from Zoku, the leader in creative ice pop molds.

Check out their 21 different ice pop designs.

Don’t call these ice cream pops Popsicles, however.

Popsicle© is a trademarked term referring to a single brand—the one that produces those long, thin icy treats (the history of Popsicles).

Anything else is simply (and legally) an ice pop. If it’s made with milk and/or cream, like this recipe, it’s an ice cream pop.

    2. WHISK in the sugar, vanilla, pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, milk and heavy cream until thoroughly combined and smooth.
