I’ve been reading a ton about homemade popsicles and I really wanted to try my hand at them with the boys. We received the Zoku Mini Pop Molds a few days before I was set to leave for BlogHer so I started pinning all kinds of delicious-sounding recipes thinking we’d start with those when I got back. However, I returned home with a lack of energy and motivation. Since I didn’t want to go to the grocery store, we sorted through the fruits we already had in the house (apples, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries). The boys decided on strawberry-raspberry popsicles.
Colin washed the berries, James cut the tops off the strawberries and then added both to the food processor. Colin helped scoop the Greek yogurt into the machine. We pureed everything together until it was smooth and creamy looking.
(For this recipe, we used: 8 strawberries, 2 handfuls of raspberries & one (8oz?) container of plain FAGE Greek Yogurt.)
I spooned the mixture in the Zoku Mini Pop Molds (they are much smaller than they seem!) so that it wouldn’t be all over the counter.
Mini Pop Molds lets you create nine mini pops. No need to run under warm water to release – when your pops are frozen, simply pull out your mini pop and enjoy! Mini pops are just the right proportion for small children! The Zoku Mini Pop Molds is great for families, parties, or as an addition to the other Zoku Slow-Pop™ family shapes!
Includes: 1 Mini Pop Mold, 9 sticks with drip guards
I really like that the pops aren’t very big. I also really like that I can control what goes in our pops. I will probably store the pop sticks in a zipper bag, but I could see how we could easily lose one (or more).
All in all, this is definitely a product I’d recommend!
What’s your favorite popsicle flavor?
