Ice—we’re either skating on it, or eating it. Call us Canadian, but it’s true.
We know frozen pops are probably one of your kids’ favourite snacks now that the weather’s warming up, and we can’t argue with the appeal of a treat on a stick. But if you like to make your own healthier version of those store-bought beauties—or you just like to make them the way you like them—then we have some great new solutions for you.
Let us introduce you to the latest in frozen pop technology. The Zoku Quick Pop Maker is able to make cool, healthy pops that are ready in just seven minutes. Leave this magical machine in the freezer for 24 hours (or more) before preparation and it will be ready to make pops when you are. The mold contains the same kind of liquid you’d find inside the drum of an ice cream maker, and it freezes the juice or yogurt placed inside so quickly your pop is ready in minutes, not hours.
The speed factor also lets you increase the cool factor of your popsicles. Because the liquid sets so quickly, you can easily make layered pops with different coloured fruit juices or even homemade creamsicles with orange juice and vanilla yogurt in the centre. ($49.95, recipes included)
