Okay, so we did have sunshine this week, though it’s hard to believe it looking at the grey skies outside. But while the sun shone, however briefly, I did get a little carried away with thoughts of warmer weather, flip flops and of course frozen lollies.
I rarely buy supermarket ice pops these days because I’m put off by how many artificial colours and flavours are in them. No great hardship because with so many different types of frozen lolly mould on the market, it’s now easier than ever to make your own frozen pops. I thought these Zipzicles were particularly nifty though as they’re reusable, zip-loc pouches you can use to make your own Ice Pops.
Invented by a mum whose son is sensitive to strong food dyes and so can’t eat commercially produced ice pops, each pouch is made from BPA-, BPS- and phthalate-free, freezer-grade plastic and holds approximately 3 fluid ounces (95 ml) when filled to the recommended level. With the exception of carbonated drinks (which you can use if you combine with ice cream or yoghurt), you can fill them with anything; freeze standing up in a mug and bingo, ice pops!
What I also love is you can buy these neoprene ice pop holders to hold them in to keep the pops cold and tiny hands warm. Forget wrapping a piece of fragile kitchen towel around the bottom!
Zipzicles are available at Lakeland (£3.49 for 18 pouches) or can be shipped directly from the US. Find out more here.
