I have been meaning to share about our new popsicle mold with you for a couple of weeks now and I'm so happy to finally have some photos to show you :)
I'm continually purging our household of plastic storage containers, dishes, glasses, and whatever else I can find so you can imagine my excitement when I learned that there was an alternative to the standard plastic popsicle molds! We use ours pretty much year round, even in the winter but I had shelved it after the big BPA blowup hit the fan. I had actually been freezing popsicles in little narrow glasses that I had found at the goodwill but it was a tippy balancing act to maneuver in the freezer *grin*. So hooray for the new mold!
The new stainless steel set comes with 6 individual popsicle molds, lids and a super handy metal stand for setting everything into the freezer. Each lid is equipped with a little silicone ring where you slip your wooden popsicle stick through and it holds it snuggly in place so that it doesn't slip or sink inside the mold as it sets. The lids are also concave shaped inside so they act as handy little drip catchers to when you eat them. This is a really good thing for my 4 year old *grin*.
Now what I really love about this set is that can take out as many of the individual molds as you need and you don't have to run the entire set of popsicles underneath the tap just so you can get 1 loose! Actually we didn't even need to run these ones under any water at all, they just popped right out after being in our hands for a couple of seconds. I can see a whole lot of popsicle goodness in my future and here's a recipe for you :)
Orange Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles
1 cup orange juice
1 cup plain yogurt
1 1/2 cups frozen or fresh strawberries
Whiz it all up in your blender, pour, freeze and enjoy! This recipe filled all 6 of our molds with just a pinch to spare :)
