My kids love making popsicles, especially in the summer. We like to get creative, and popsicles are a fun treat to eat outside in our backyard on a hot day. And as much as they make popsicles in the summer, they love popsicles year round too.
But as much as my kids like popsicles, we don’t make them as much as we would like. Popsicle molds are a little bit of a hassle – they take up a lot of room in the freezer and are annoying to clean.
The FoodWorks silicone ice pop makers are unlike any popsicle molds I have used before. They are single tubes, and you get 6 different colors in a box. These silicone pop makers are food safe, dishwasher safe, and BPA-free.
After washing my ice pop makers, I filled with apple juice. You are supposed to leave an inch of space at the top to allow for expansion. I left just barely an inch at the top, and I do recommend making sure you leave a full inch. I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to put the lid on with apple juice in the tube, but it was actually easy. I thought I might end up squeezing the tube as I was putting on the lid, but it wasn’t a problem.
I love that these do not require popsicle sticks, and they do not take up a lot of room. You know how regular plastic popsicle molds are usually 4-6 popsicles? With the FoodWorks popsicle molds, you choose how ever many you wish to make, and even with all 6, they take up a very minimal amount of room in the freezer.
My kids love these popsicles! They are so easy to use – just pop off the lid and then warm the outside with your hands (or I run it under warm water), and you’re set to go!
We like to get creative with our popsicles. I use a lot of fruit juices, and another one of my go-to popsicle recipes is to use plain yogurt mixed with frozen juice concentrate (for example, vanilla yogurt mixed with frozen cherry juice concentrate). It is super easy to pour your creations right into the silicone tube.
There are so many things I love about these pop makers, such as:
~ Easy to clean, dishwasher safe BPA free.. no 6-piece popsicle molds, no fussing with trying to clean and dry 6 lids
~ No mess – these popsicles don’t drip… and if your kids don’t finish their popsicle, just put the lid back on and pop it back in the freezer!
~ They don’t take up much room to store or freeze
The FoodWorks silicone ice pop makers have been a lot of fun, and I look forward to coming up with some more creative recipes for the kids! I love all the great features and my kids certainly enjoy these.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
