We are a big fan of frozen treats in our house, especially in summer time. We have made our own popsicles at home for years, but now there is a new way to enjoy homemade frozen treats: Zipzicle. With Zipzicle you can create your own Ice Pops in your favorite flavors. No need to worry about sticks or taking your treats on the go. Simply use a small funnel or baster to fill the tube to the fill line, seal the zip closure and freeze. Once frozen, run the zipper closure under a bit of warm water to make it easier to open.
We first tried ours out using Silk Protein Milk for one and cherry cola for the other.
The kids really enjoyed the pops and thought it was great to be able to make their own favorite flavor. After making the cherry cola one, I read that it is not recommended to use carbonated beverages for the Zipzicles. My son really enjoyed the flavor, so we might try again and just not fill the tube as full. My daughter, who always seems to be done before her treat is gone, loved that she could zip it back up and enjoy it later. I liked not having to throw away half of a freezer pop.
We have decided that Zipzicle is a great way to pack away that bit of leftover smoothie for enjoyment later. We used to simply pour them into a cup and set them in the freezer, but they were always too hard to enjoy. With Zipzicle, it is easy to squeeze it out and enjoy it as a frozen treat. Who knows, maybe we will make smoothies just to enjoy as Zipzicles!
You can use the Zipzicles just once, or you can wash them with a bit of soapy water, rinse, and refill. We decided that if we have friends over, we would keep them single use, but for the kids, I have labeled theirs and we can use them a couple of times at least.
The Zipzicle site is full of recipes, tips and more. You can purchase direct from ZipZicle or find them on Amazon.
