My kids are popsicle crazy. Morning, noon and night they want to make popsicles. In my quest to avoid unnatural food dyes and excess sugar, we started making our own popsicles. Welcome Zoku to the family.
Zoku makes popsicles super fast. 10 minutes fast. If you have kids, you know fast is good. They have no patience for waiting for a treat and this is just long enough. Plus it becomes a fun project when you start “decorating” your popsicles.

Dress up the everyday popsicle with strawberry slices. Or go with a sweeter option and add in mini chocolate chips!
Our go to popsicle is yellow or pink lemonade. I like the Newman’s Own Organic Lemonade which has no high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors or flavors. Both kids love it.

There are all sorts of special accessories for the Zoku. We have a basic model with 2 moldsand if our family grows, we will be in the market for a larger option down the road. I love the idea for making a bunch of popsicles for the kids and their playmates when they get older. They all already get excited about clicking in their “drip trays.”
And yes, the Zoku is also good for making boozy popsicles for the grown-ups too. Shhh…don’t tell the littles.
