A pop a day keeps boredom away!

Popping In

Hey all,

Turns out when your toddler starts walking and stops sleeping, you fall out of the habit of blogging pretty quickly. But of course, the holidays are rich with ice pop ideas. Here are some I’ve either made or contemplated.:

1. Pumpkin pie — mix equal parts pureed pumpkin (I used fresh, canned is fine), plain yogurt and powdered sugar, plus a generous dash of pumpkin pie spice. This is actually my favorite fall dip recipe, but I think it’d make a terrific pop. It’s first on my list to try.

2. Eggnog! Self-explanatory.

3. Apple Pie — Apple juice with pie spice. Or, in the alternative, apple cider with a splash of whipped vodka. I’ve been drinking these for the last month, in a glass rimmed with pie spice. Fantastic. If you’re new here, just remember that the proportion of alcohol in a Zoku pop needs to be quite low, or else you will have freezing trouble.

4. Candy Cane — this one I haven’t figured out a recipe for yet, but I’m noodling it out. I’ll post when I have a good one.

Sorry for the lack of photos and taste-tests (not to mention the four-month absence). I can’t promise I’ll be back every day, but it would be fun to finish the year strong.

    Congrats on the Zoke shout-out on Facebook! For the Candy Cane pop, might I suggest vanilla pudding base, a drop or two of mint extract, and crumbled candy canes for color and texture? Alternately, chocolate base could also be yummy.

    I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Please post photos!

  3. I’ve been enjoying eggnog in my Zoku since November and it’s fabulous! And it’s super easy… pour, freeze, eat.

    I recently bought the book “Poptails: 60 Boozy Treats Served on a Stick” by Erin Nichols (it’s available from amazon) and it has instructions for adding alcohol to popsicles so that you get the flavour and it still freezes.
