Two Ingredient Raspberry Mini Zoku Pops #Backtoschool

zoku mini pop reviewMaking homemade popsicles has always been a problem for me. Don’t get me wrong, they’re easy enough to make – but it’s the fighting to get them out of the mold that I have problems with. They break, they get stuck, and sometimes it’s just easier to let them melt then fight with it. Thankfully Zoku has a solution to this problem, and it helps put me at ease that I’m not the only one who struggles with this.

zoku mini pop reviewZoku sent me their Mini Pop maker to check out just in time for Back to School. Not only is it extremely easy to use, but it makes smaller pops for kids, or for when you just need a hint of sweetness. The Zoku Mini Pops mold will make 9 individual sized pops, and has a sturdy plastic base so they wont tip wherever you place them in the freezer.

zoku mini pop reviewInside the package you have all the tools you need to make your own mini pops: the base and 9 handles. The base is rigid, and the silicone molds are actually screwed into it – they’re taking construction seriously here – so you know it’ll last a long time. To get started, just hand wash everything with warm soap and water and allow it to dry.

zoku mini pop reviewThe smaller portion size of the Zoku Mini Pops mold makes it perfect for an afternoon treat for after they get out of school, or depending on what you put in your pops – you could even have one for breakfast! You just make your favorite popsicle recipe and fill up the wells. You may need to reduce the recipe a little, but a standard 4 popsicle recipe should work fine.  Be careful not to over fill each well, but even this is easy to do since there is a “fill line” inside each one. Keep it to that level and you will have almost perfect mini-pops. A few of mine went over, but they didn’t over expand and push the handle out, so it didn’t seem to be a problem.

zoku mini pop reviewTo test out the Zoku Mini Pops I decided to make a two ingredient popsicle – all natural and something you wouldn’t worry about additives, colors or over sugary.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen Raspberries (thawed)
  • 2 Tbsp Honey


zoku mini pop reviewDirections: 

  1. Combine all ingredients in your blender and puree until smooth.
  2. (Optional) Pour through a sieve to remove seeds (I left the seeds in ours)
  3. Fill each Mini Pop well and insert the handle, and place on a level surface in the freezer. Freeze for at least 6 hours.
  4. Remove from mold and enjoy. To store longer term, you can place your pops in a zip top bag and replace in the freezer.

zoku mini pop reviewTo remove your Mini Pops from their mold, you just reach below and push the silicone mold out. Each one will pop out easily. You don’t need to run them under hot water, partially melt them, or force them out. It’s as simple as popping them out and enjoying them.

I loved how easy it is to make the mini pops, and even better how easy it is to remove each one. I didn’t have to fight with them, and the smaller portions make it great for kids or if you’re watching your sweets intake. The only thing I wish the kit came with was more handles so you could make more batches quicker – I’m pretty sure these will go quickly! But for a sweet treat after school, these are a great addition. And with the right ingredients, they wont even know you’re giving them a healthy treat!
