Popsicle Stand

It's summer here in North Orange County. The sun is out, the temperature is up and everyone is wearing shorts and dresses. All this adds up to me wanting a popsicle. Then add to that everyone seems to be making booze laden, fruity tasting frozen treats on Pinterest that look absolutely delicious. Booze on a stick? Count me in. So I started doing some research on popsicle makers, because really who wants to do it the old fashioned way and wait hours when you can make them in 7 minutes. That's right, 7 minutes. Check out the Zoku:

Of course they have tons of accessories that you have to get as well.

I ordered it yesterday and it's on it's way. Now that it's coming I needed to start locking down recipes so I can get it working as soon as it arrives. I wanted to look for both boozy and non-boozy recipes, because I don't think a vodka filled frozen goodness is appropriate at noon on a work day or for kids. My search landed so many results that I really had to narrow it down otherwise this post would be going on forever! It appears that popsicles are the latest food craze to be hitting the net so the recipes are fun and gourmet. I feel sad for you if you don't have a Zoku and have to wait hours to try these out.

5 o'clock pops

White and Black Russian Pop - It's got calories, but would be fun to try at least once.
Mojito Pop - This just sounds super refreshing.
Bourbon Peaches and Cream Pop - I want one now!
Wine Pop - My favorite drink now with more freeze.
Cucumber Honeydew Margarita Pop - How delicious does this sound on a hot summer day?
Blueberry Moonshine Pop - Oh my!

Anytime pops

Mint Melon Pop - I love mint and with the melon this should be awesome.
Coconut Chai Pop - Perfect afternoon pick up.
Nutella Fudgesicles - For that chocolate craving.
Honeydew Lime Pop - With fresh melon and lime.
Strawberry Basil Pop - I love basil and fruit and this sounds so good.
Lemonade Pop - These recipes are not necessarily for popsicles, but I think they would be delicious!

Have a great weekend and I hope you get to make at least one of these lovelies!
