A pop a day keeps boredom away!

Today was…a day. It started with all three kids home (one on school break, one sick, one tiny and teething) and included a dryer fire (PSA from me to you — Do not leave the house while the dryer is running. I shudder to think what would have happened if I’d been out when it happened).

This is all a long way of apologizing in advance for the extremely basic nature of today’s pop. It’s just juice:

Since the ingredients were simple, I took the opportunity to try making filled pops again. I thought I could maybe use the translucency of lemonade to make a really interesting filled pop.

To make filled pops, you need to have all of your components ready at the start — in this case, two juices already in easy-pouring cups and the all-important straw. Pour the outside layer and wait until a thin shell freezes. I also poured the lemonade layer a little bit short, so that the orange would show at the bottom.

Use the straw to suck out the still-liquid innards, then fill with the second juice.

As you can see, these pops worked out quite nicely. You can get a sense of how translucent the pops are, and there’s also a hint looking at them that the center is different from the outside. It almost looks like a frosted orange pop.

I tried to get a photo of the inside of the pop, but that was a little difficult. This is the best I could do:

All in all, a nice little pop to end a trying day.

  1. I think today was just one of those days for everyone. Mine was full of misadventures as well. But I’m pretty sure one of these pops would make it all better! When you figure out how to ship to Utah, let me know. 😉
