Contest – Reusable Stainless Steel Popsicle Mold

It’s summer time and I’m thrilled to be hosting a contest! I can’t think of a more desirable addition to your kitchen this summer than the reusable stainless steel popsicle molds found at Green Planet Parties. Not only will you feel like a super star for always having a healthier popsicle treat for your kids (because they are handmade), but you eliminate packaging, trips to the store, and cost with reusable popsicle molds. I’ve been using the Onyx molds for years and my favourite trick is to dump left over smoothie into a mold. The result is delicious popsicle whenever the kids want them, made from delicious hidden ingredients like chia seeds and fresh fruit.

Seriously, by now we know that freezing liquid in plastic is a bad idea…right? The solution is simple with steel being a better option. These molds are made from 18/8 stainless steel and are dishwasher and freezer safe. This contest is open to all Canadian and US residents and is active until June 30th at midnight.  Good luck!

Homemade Popsicles

I’ve been really trying to introduce my kids to more homemade frozen and blended treats this summer – rather than store bought or drive-thru. The easiest way has been playing with smoothie recipes and then freezing into popsicles. Using the stainless steel molds is by far the best thing to reduce plastic mixing with your frozen treat. Here is my step-by-step recipe for making homemade, delicious popsicles for summer treats!

Vanilla Flavored Greek Yogurt

 

 

Add Frozen berry (no frozen ice needed when using frozen berries)

Frozen – sliced banana (slice before freezing)

Layer In Blender – Top with Milk

At this point it’s a delicious smoothie!  Pour some and enjoy. However the left over can go into the stainless steel Popsicle mold for homemade Popsicle. They are delicious!

Voila – a really healthy, non plastic popsicle. No wrappers and freezing liquids that you’re going to eat in stainless steel & glass is the safest way to freeze food.

 

What is your favorite thing to add to homemade popsicles or smoothies?

Stainless Steel Popsicle Mold Contest

The owners of The Tickle Trunk have been working on perfecting an elusive and incredibly designed product since their store first opened – a stainless steel popsicle mold.  I’ve spoken with owner Carolyn regularly for almost a year and not a conversation has gone by without her mentioning with so much excitement about these popsicle molds. Well I have one of these amazing trays in my freezer, as they have just arrived and are in-stock at the Tickle Trunk and they live up to every one of my expectations. This might be one of the last places you’ve been trying to source a BPA-free or plastic-free solution in your freezer. Since the hormone disruptor BPA first gained media attention 2 years ago, most parents have been wary of plastic materials being used for freezing or heating food/liquid. I’ve never made my own popsicles because the plastic alternatives on the market always turned me off. The Tickle Trunk has not only designed a product that will last a life time because the design and quality are amazing, but is a pioneer in the process of bringing safe products to the fingertips of parents looking for stainless steel alternatives.

The popsicle mold arrives with several pieces and includes: 6 large stainless steel popsicle molds, 1 metal tray to hold the molds, disposable wooden popsicle sticks, silicone parts to hold the stick in place and stainless steel discs.  The steel is high quality 18/8 grade making it dishwasher friendly and easy to clean.  The molds are free-floating so that you can remove or re-fill one at a time.  The silicone rings were designed with this material so that the popsicle stick glides into the mold easily and stays where it’s supposed to be placed. The discs that hold the stick and measure the size of your popsicle have a beautiful sun burst design that is kid friendly and very attractive for adults.

The minute this popsicle mold arrived in my home, I was so excited to try making my own popsicles for the first time with my kids. I’ve since researched nutritious recipes that you can use to improve the popsicle, but I’m pleased with how easy the process was. You can tell this product has been tested, re-tested, designed, and perfected by a mom. Small details like using the removable silicone rings to adjust to the different sized sticks a consumer would use – to the tray design that keeps the molds perfectly still while freezing. When the popsicle is frozen and ready to be removed from the mold, you simply warm it in your hand and it releases very smoothly ~ ready for that excited child or adult to enjoy. Talk about the w-o-w factor and there’s nothing else like it on the market.
