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