Disclosure- I received a product sample for the purpose of this review. All opinions in this post are 100% my own.
My kids love popsicles, especially during the hot months, which is pretty much year round here in Florida! I love to give them popsicles, especially when they are playing outside, that way I know they are getting even more fluids than I already push on them, and they’re cooling their cores.
I normally buy those popsicles that are in a skinny plastic-y pouch that you snip the end off, that way if they’re playing with half the neighborhood, I can hand them out to everyone.
I do hate that I don’t know what on earth is in them, who knows what kind of dye and flavors are in them. I’ve often wished for a more natural alternative, yet something that’s also affordable in case I’m sharing also sharing with neighbor kids.
When I was offered to try Zipzicles, I, of course accepted. I was struck by what an amazing idea these are.
1 large package of strawberries
1 cup of lemonade
I washed the strawberries thoroughly and cut them into halves and quarters. I tossed them in the blender with the lemonade and pureed until there were no large chunks.
I used a funnel to pour the strawberry lemonade mixture into the Zipzicles. I put them in a cup to keep them upright and stuck them in the freezer. My kids actually went away for the weekend when I made them, so they were in the freezer for a couple days before they got to try them out.
For my second batch, I also decided to stay simple. I love drinking fruit infused water. I had some water with fresh pineapple and orange slices in it, so I poured some into the Zipzicles.
The second batch was unbelievably refreshing after playing outside in the hot Florida sunshine all afternoon.
I loved these. They are easy to fill, and my kids said that my Zipzicles are better than popsicles from the store!
