Cool Kids Off Fast With the Zoku Quick Pop Maker

Ice, ice baby! When the weather forecast includes a heat wave, keeping tots cool is a priority. Ice pops are always a Summertime favorite with lil ones racing to the corner as soon as they hear the ice cream truck’s first jingle. In the seven minutes it takes to wait in line for your treat, you can create your own, healthier version at home.

The new Zoku Quick Pop Maker ($50) takes your homemade popsicle recipe and flash freezes it, making the icy treat ready to eat faster than you can run out down the block to the Good Humor man. Avoid the high-fructose corn syrup and artificially colored treats by using fresh fruit and yogurt to create your own tasty treats. To see two of our favorite, easy pop recipes,

Strawberry & Raspberry Frozen Yogurt Popsicles

Ingredients

4 cups whole milk yogurt
2 cups chopped strawberries

  1. Strain liquid from the yogurt. To strain, place cheesecloth or paper towels in a colander. Pour yogurt into the colander and place it in a large bowl. Place in refrigerator for 2 hours.

  3. Place strawberries in a bowl and add sugar.
  4. Chop or puree raspberries and add to strawberries, stir to combine.
  5. Stir the strained yogurt into strawberry raspberry mixture.
  6. Fill popsicle molds.
