This week I have a cool recipe for you and a review of a kitchen product. The ZOKU Quick Pop Maker, very cool and if you have small kids who love popsicles you will want to get this! I really liked that I can control what goes into it.. Fresh Fruit, low sugar, Organic etc...
So today I made Organic Strawberry/Banana Smoothie pops and they were gone in a flash!
Here's what you need... (sorry about my photos, I had the camera on the night setting. oops)
1 Small Organic Banana, 5 oz. Organic Whole Milk,
3 tsp Organic Honey & 5 oz. Organic Strawberry Yogurt.
This doesn't have to be Organic you can use what you have, that's what I did.
Put the banana with 4 ounces of the Milk & the honey in a blender.
Blend until Smooth.
In a measuring cup or small bowl with a spout mix the Yogurt with 1 ounce of Milk.
Take your Pop Maker out of the Freezer and set up..
Basically just get your sticks in place and have your extras on stand by..
You can make up to 6 before the unit thaws out.. but you have to work fast.
Pour the banana mixture in halfway and let sit for about 3 min or until it's somewhat firm. You want to be able to added the Strawberry mixture over it without the 2 mixing together.
Then added Strawberry mixture in just to the line, it will expand as it freezes.
After about 7-9 minutes they will be frozen and ready to be removed..
Place the Super Tool over the stick and turn until your pop loosens and then undo the Super Tool..
Repeat for each Pop...
It comes with drip cups you can add to the end of the sticks too.
Here are some tips: Make sure you freeze the pop maker before you use it at least 24 hours or more... and at least 24 hours each time in between if you want to make 6 pops each time.. If you want to just put some juice in and make a quick treat 12 hours will be good. It says you can get 9 before the until thaws.. I would say maybe if you were making just juice pops.. But, you can't get 9 if you are making a 2 step pop like I did. Overall this is a great gadget and I used it everyday since we got it.. My son is loving it!
I used these measuring cups : I LOVE them!!
