Strawberry Popsicles

June 4, 2014

For my birthday, back in January, Ryan got me a Zoku popsicle maker.  Have you heard of this?

It’s so cool!  You put the entire thing in the freezer (it’s pretty small), and let it “freeze” kind of like an ice-cream maker.  Then, you fill up the popsicle cavities with the filling of your choice, and in 5-7 minutes, they’re frozen and ready to come out!  So much faster than a traditional popsicle mold!

On Monday, Lila and I went strawberry picking with some of our friends from the Little Gym:

…and I knew when we came home with a huge bucket, that it was the perfect time to try out the Zoku.

The nice thing about making your own popsicles (or anything) is that you get total control over what goes into it.  These strawberries were so sweet, I barely added any sugar.  For the filling, I simply pureed six cups of strawberries, the juice of a lemon, and two tablespoons of sugar.  And honestly, the two tablespoons might not have even been necessary!

The Zoku worked perfectly!  After seven minutes, you screw in a little top that helps you pull the pops out.  Perfect summer treat!

And of course, everything tastes better when you’re wearing a tutu. Winking smile

    I actually have one of those popsicle makers but I’ve never used it.
