Who thinks you can only eat popsicles when it is +30 Celsius out there? Anyone in favor please raise your hand… No one right? You all agree that popsicles can go anytime, anyday, anywhere… If you’ve followed me for a while you might have seen some more popsicles pass by over the last couple of years but really, I do not make them often enough. And now that I have my brand new toy; a Zoku popsicle maker I will be making even more of those, as it is literally a few minutes work.

The only downside of the Zoku is that it needs to refreeze after every use, but then again, you can make 6 popsicles in one go and there is no need to make them all the same flavor so you could make 6 different ones, or 6 the same, or any combination in between. For my first trial run of the Zoku I kind of messed up a little bit as I should have known that slices of strawberry do not go in very well when there is a stick in the middle and a solid frozen block. I first made a delicious combination of lime and ginger. I made sugar syrup, mixed it with fresh limejuice and added some ginger syrup which I still had in the cupboard.

I loved the flavor combination and apart from the stupid mistake with the strawberry slices (which you can see one or two in the popsicle above) I thought they turned out fabulous. Tom thought they were a little sour for his taste. He is not a big fan of sour, so these were at his limit. Not mine; I start salivating when I think of them right now! O and the mint you see in the photo is not in it. I was planning on adding a hint of mint but …eh…forgot!
