I was so excited when I was asked by the folks at Zoku to review their Triple Quick Pop Maker as I have wanted one of these products for the longest time.
Trying to eat right and stay on track is difficult, especially with all the holidays and special occasions (birthday parties, anniversary dinners, weddings, etc.) that come along and can sabotage your diet. Having a Zoku Quick Pop Maker in the house will help prevent you from falling off the wagon.
I get horrible cravings for sweets and I am guilty of falling off the wagon often, but having a Zoku Triple Quick Pop Maker is really going to help me stay on track. Making low-calorie, healthy snacks with a touch of sweetness will help satisfy those cravings.
As many of you know, I have hypoglycemia and it’s difficult to find “healthy” alternatives that are not laced with artificial sweeteners. I have had to resort to making my own snacks so that I can control what goes into them. Having the Zoku Triple Quick Pop Maker will allow me to eliminate the sugar and control the natural sugar alternatives I put into my treats. I use Stevia in place of cane sugar, as it does not affect my glucose levels, and I feel better knowing exactly what is in my pops.
From start to finish, it took me less than 15 minutes to prepare and make these wonderfully delicious treats. I chose something very simple – a Mango Coconut fruit pop with pieces of mango in the mixture. It’s my own concoction but there are tons of recipes at the Zoku website and on their Pinterest page. All I did was take some frozen mango and coconut milk and blend it up in my bullet.
Place your Zoku Quick Pop Maker in the freezer for 24 hours, chill your liquid ingredients and pour them into the individual pop slots. Watch them freeze for 7 to 9 minutes and you will have delicious healthy treats for your family. Each Zoku Quick Pop Maker can produce 3 batches of pops per 24 hour freeze. So if you have the single pop maker, you will be able to make 3 pops. The double pop maker will yield 6 pops per 24 hour freeze and the triple pop maker like mine will yield 9.
You’ll find plenty of recipes shared by pinners on Pinterest or make up your own and share them with other Zoku Fans. Either way, your family is going to love this handy little treat maker. I guarantee you, it will be money well spent.
You can purchase the entire Zoku product line (including recipe books) at Amazon.com! My favorite are the kids’ character shaped molds – so adorable.
You need one of these – so much fun!
