We were recently given a Zoku. We really enjoy playing with it and Bunny #1 loves to make 'ice cream' or 'ice pops' before dinner. By the time she has finished her dinner the ice lollys have frozen and are ready for eating.
I have found that 1 cup of liquid makes approx 3 lollys.
Here is our stripey ice lolly.
This was made using 3/4 cup of orange juice and 1/4 cup of water. Put 2 tbsp of the mixture in the bottom - add the stick and allow to freeze (approx 3-4 mins.) Meanwhile add 2 drops of red food coloring to the remaining mixture. Add another 2 tbsp of orange juice to the molds. Allow to freeze (allowing things to freeze between layers does test Bunny #1's patience.) Add another 2 drops of red food coloring to the remaining mixture and then top off the molds. So easy and so pretty!
Another favorite is the 'chocolate ice cream'.
I slowly melt 1/4 of semi sweet chocolate in 1/4 of milk. Then add 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt. Mix thoroughly and pour into the molds. Apparently this recipe is so good it is enough to get her to eat all her green beans - maybe I should reduce the chocolate content ;-)
