Freezies ~ Zipsicles

I discovered Zipzicle ice-pop pouches last year...wee zip lock pouches that make it easy to create custom-made freezies.  They can be ordered on-line or purchased at specified stores in the USA...and filled with fruits or juices of your choice.  The three varieties featured here are the ones my grands are enjoying this summer. They think the gummy worm ice-pops are #1.   My pick is the strawberry pina colada version...which reminds me of my favorite breakfast parfait (strawberries, bananas and oranges with pina colada yogurt).  And...for old-times sake...I made up some root beer float Zipzicles.  We're going camping with the grands soon...and the Zipsicles fit nicely in the freezer of the RV.  Who doesn't like a cold treat on a hot day?

  1. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Yummy!~ I found these Zipzicle thingys on our Canadian ebay site ...

  3. Great idea! I love the look of the Pina Colada recipe, but I can't eat bananas, what other fruit would you suggest to replace it with?

    1. That's the beauty of making your own ice can add or delete fruits as you choose. I would add mango or pineapple instead of the banana...or even blueberries. Go with what you like and what's available.

  4. What a great idea! They look delish :)

  5. These sound amazing Judy!!! What a great idea! I can see why your grands love these....happy Gramping!!!
