Hooray for Friday! Who is with me on that? Yesterday we got a taste of warmer temperatures in Milwaukee and it just gave a little glimpse of what summer will feel like. LITTLE glimpse…it’s back in the 40s today. Anyway, if summer ever gets here you’re going to want to cool off with an ice cold popsicle. And you can make them all by yourself. The nice thing about making them by yourself is that you have the freedom to choose any flavor or fillings that you want!
I’m bringing you something today that is pretty much amazing. Imagine creating your own popsicles in 7 minutes. I recently received one of the Zoku Quick Pop Makers and was giddy with excitement. I couldn’t decide what I wanted to try first! Since I’ve been on a Stonyfield Banilla kick lately I figured I would use yogurt in my pops. And what goes best with banilla? Berries and fresh strawberries.
After freezing my Zoku Quick Pop Maker for 24 hours, I removed it from the freezer and inserted one of the sticks. I used a turkey baster (I know) to inject juice into the mold first. I opted for using Bolthouse Farms Berry Boost for an intense berry flavor and chopped some fresh strawberry chunks up, adding in a few. Then using my baster (I know!) I injected some of my Banilla yogurt on top of the juice. You can choose to layer the yogurt and juice in any fashion that you like, or add in as many layers as you’d like. After you fill the mold to the fill line (do not fill beyond this) you’ll let the popsicle set for 7-9 minutes.
After the popsicle is set you will use the Quick Tool to remove the pop from the mold, attach one of the Drip Guards and voila! You have popsicles! The single-pop mold will freeze up to 3 popsicles at a time.
So do you want to win a Single Quick Pop Maker of your own? Zoku has so graciously offered up a shiny new red one for one of my readers!
