Parents, I have to share my favorite summer kitchen find that is a must if you have children! Its the Zoku, Quick Pop Maker. Forget about store bought sugar laden or sugar free chemicals and ingredients. Now you can have beautiful, gourmet, healthy frozen treats. The Zoku allows you to use your own ingredients from fresh juice, fruit, greek yogurt, milk and kefir, so you know exactly what you are eating.
Follow these simple steps to create your Zoku frozen pop:
- As soon as you get home put the pop maker in the freezer for 24 hours so its ready to go when you get the urge to make your healthy treat.
- Remove from freezer and insert the pop sticks into the three mold areas. If you’re using fruit, place the fruit in before inserting the sticks.
- Pour the filling of your choice into each mold and wait 7-9 minutes for the pops to freeze. If you want to create a layered pop wait until each layer of juice freezes before adding another.
- To release your pop, turn the orange super tool clockwise and enjoy!
Finally, the Zoku is not new but as of last summer it was new to me. So if you already know about this cool gadget wonderful! And if not, seriously pick one up! They retail for $49.95 and have lots of cool accessories to make a great activity with the kids and snack for you and your family.
