First of all let me say this is not a sponsored post. I bought this product with my own money for my husband who is let me just say the “Popsicle King”. This man can go through a box of popsicles in one day. If you haven’t heard of the Zoku popsicle maker it is AWESOME. You can make your own popsicles at home with your own ingredients and it only takes 7 minutes for them to freeze! The best part of all is you can make them on your counter top with no electricity. (Well as long as you had in the freezer beforehand.) For the small Zoku maker you can make up to 6 popsicles before you have to refreeze it. The sticks are reusable so you don’t have to keep buying new ones. We actually have the Zoku Quick Pop Maker that can make up to 9 at a time. We also bought the storage case so that we could make several at a time. Next I am hoping to get the slushie/shake maker!

Check out this Cherry Limeade Recipe from ZOKU
- 1 cup (8 fl oz) all natural limeade
- 6 oz (a heaping cup) fresh or frozen pitted, sweet, dark cherries*
- zest of a fresh lime
- MAKE THE BASE
- In a blender, combine limeade, cherries, and lime zest; puree until smooth.
- ASSEMBLE THE POPS
- Insert the sticks into the Zoku Quick Pop Maker and pour the Cherry Limeade base to the fill line of each cavity. Let freeze completely, then remove the pops with the Super Tool. Repeat with remaining pops. If you’re going for the striped look, layer the Cherry Limeade base with plain limeade, just be sure to allow each layer to freeze before adding the next layer. Please note that layering flavors will require a longer freezing time for each batch of Quick Pops.
- *We used frozen cherries for this recipe. Please note that the mixture will be thicker when frozen cherries are used. If you find your mixture to be too thick, simply thin it down with a little more limeade. The color of your Cherry Limeade Quick Pops will vary depending on the variety of cherries you use. We recommend tasting the base before filling the Zoku Quick Pop Maker. If your cherries are nice and sweet you won’t need added sugar. If you find your base needs to be sweetened up, simply add in a little sugar or agave until you reach your preferred level of sweetness.
