My kids LOVE icy cold treats year round, not just in the summer when it is hot. But often we end up picking up the ones that are probably not the best for them, things I have honestly not fully researched what is truly in them. I know I should, but with such a busy schedule and always being on the go, I haven't done what I probably should have. I figured perhaps it might be better, and more fun, to make our own.
This set comes with 150 pieces to help you create your own delicious masterpieces. In addition, you get a set of 5 free sleeves to insert your pouches in to that will help keep your hand protected from the chill of the frozen treat. They are each brightly colored and well stitched. The plastic pouches are 11.4x1.9'' and BPA free. They are disposable, so you can toss them out when done. Each pouch has a zippered closure on top to allow for easy closing and sealing until you are reading to take them out and enjoy them.
There are tons of great ideas for making your own healthy treats on Pinterest. Start searching and see what you can find. But even if you don't search out some new ideas, you can easily come up with your own ideas. Not so healthy ideas would include freezing sodas or kool aid mixtures. Healthier ones would include using yogurt, coconut water, fresh fruits, and so on. You can even experiment with adult only treats! But that is the beauty of making them yourself - you customize the flavoring to what YOU want. The only limit is your creativity.
A few tips for making them:
- Be sure to use a funnel or something to direct the mixture directly in to the pouch. The Amazon listing mentions a small green funnel that comes with it, but then does not list it on the included package contents or in any pictures. Find a funnel that works for you. Dollar stores have them, as do most other stores.
- Don't forget to leave at least 1/2" at the top. When liquids freeze they expand, and when those liquids are contained in a pouch, there is nowhere to expand but up and out. Give yourself room for expansion.
- Always freeze in an upright position for best results. You can seal them and lay them flat, but make sure they are fully sealed and entirely flat or you will have challenges using them until they melt. One trick is to use the wire slots of your freezer shelves to help hold them in an upright position. If you have too much space between shelves, try stacking some of your freezer meals, meats, breads, or whatever you have in the freezer currently on the shelf below your wire shelving unit you wish to use. Then insert your popcicle molds in to each slot on the shelf and prop the bottoms on the stacked up frozen items on the shelf below.
This is a great set for making popcicles and a great price. Getting 150 bags should last you awhile, though if you have treat mongers like my kids, they might not last as long as you think. But at this price point, you can easily pick up another set - and get more sleeves for free with that purchase, too!
