Beatriz, author of the blog To Be Gourmet , brings us a recipe made with a utensil that I really wanted to show you. It is a small ice cream maker that we leave in the freezer to use when we want to make homemade popsicles. Its use is extremely simple: you only need to put the ingredients and in a few minutes the ice creams are ready to eat. Beatriz has prepared on this occasion some delicious ice creams with very natural ingredients. Do you dare to try?

If it is difficult for children to eat fruit, with the ZOKU QUICK POP refrigerator they will not stop this summer!

I have known this product for a long time and was looking forward to trying it. More than a utensil to use, it is a real toy for children and adults. Making popsicles, with all the possibilities offered by the ZOKU system, is the most fun I've ever done.

Choose ingredients from a thousand colors, let your imagination run wild by thinking of more and more combinations, and make magic by seeing how our popsicles are made in less than 10 minutes right under your nose.

The attached instructions are very simple, you just have to identify the tools and follow the steps.

I have chosen these options for their attractiveness and their delicious flavor, although the variety of Zoku ice cream recipes is as wide as the creativity of each one. The first is a memory of the fruit porridge that my mother made me when I was little; apple, orange and banana.

The second is a whim for my daughter Marta who wanted a pink polo shirt. Being the cherries in season the thing was clear!

Apple, banana and orange lolly


  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 banana
  • 25ml of water
  • 2 level tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 piece of lemon
  • Orange juice 2 oranges


for two poles

  1. Peel the apple, reserving a few slices to decorate, sprinkle them with lemon and reserve them. Crush the rest of the apple with a tablespoon of sugar and a little water so that the mixture is not so thick. Squeeze the oranges and add a tablespoon of sugar.
  2. Cut a few slices of banana and cut them in half. With the help of the wand to stick the fruit, we place the apple and banana pieces on the walls of the Zoku mold (they stay stuck by the cold). Next, pour the orange juice until it fills a third of the space, wait for it to solidify (3 or 4 min), add the apple juice, wait again and finish with more orange juice. Unmold when solid.

Yogurt lolly with cherries, chocolate and milk


  • 1 strawberry yogurt
  • 7 cherries
  • White chocolate filled with red berries
  • 50ml of milk
  • 2 level tablespoons of sugar


for two poles

  1. Dissolve the sugar in the milk and reserve. We pit the cherries and crush them. Put the strawberry yogurt in a bowl and strain the cherry juice over it so that it falls very finely over the yogurt. It will take us a nice hot pink color.
  2. We break some pieces of white chocolate with red fruits and with the help of the wand we place them on the walls of the Zoku mold (they stay stuck by the cold). As the chocolate is more difficult to stick, we previously wet it in the sweetened milk.
  3. Let's pour the yogurt with cherry in the Zoku mold until almost the end. We wait for it to solidify (5 min approx) we add the milk with sugar. We wait two or three more minutes and unmold.

Each time a popsicle is removed, another can be prepared. There are six sticks in the ZOKU ice cream maker for three popsicles , so six popsicles can be made in one go. Add to that the wide variety of Zoku recipes possible, imagine how much you can whip up in no time!

I can't wait to do more!!!
