Lately there has been this overwhelming urge to make popsicles! There has even been some trips to everywhere from Walmart to William-Sanoma looking for the perfect mold without any luck. I can't get into the new models where you have to keep the huge mold in a freezer just to fulfill the need for instant gratification. It's just ridiculous! This society needs to get over the need for things like instant popsicles and go back to quality handmade items, even if it takes a couple extra hours in the freezer!
Norpro, on the other hand, has exactly what I'm looking for! It makes ten (count em... 10!) at a time and uses wooden popsicle sticks rather than plastic ones. Wooden sticks can be bought at a craft store for a few dollars for a few hundred of them. Very cost effective! Did I mention that this mold is only about $7 (at amazon.com) instead of the $50 it is for the instant clunky one that only makes four a time and requires you to use the sticks that come with it. This isn't a hard decision!
There are so many recipes I want to try! Coconut, coffee, apricot, avocado... etc. I know what you're thinking... avocado... gross! But these are absolutely amazingly creamy and have almost a lime taste to them. Yum!!! I've even seen a Corona popsicle that only requires Corona and lime. Brilliant! I can't wait to start making some healthy simple popsicle snacks from fruits, maybe even veggies (we'll see)!
