Recipe, Review and Giveaway: ZOKU Mini Pop Molds


Some people might say that winter is the wrong time to think about frozen treats, but we disagree in the Murray Household. There is never a wrong time for popsicles, smoothies or ice cream and we especially like making our own at home!

You may be familiar with ZOKU and their wonderful line of frozen treat making gadgets.

If you shop at Target and the like, their products are hard to miss. Bright, eye catching packaging and unique designs make ZOKU's variety of frozen treat makers stand out from all the others.

The folks at ZOKU sent us their Mini Pop Mold to try for ourselves and we were not disappointed! Here is what their website says about the product:

Create up to nine different mini pops at a time with the Zoku Mini Pop Molds. Forget fighting with the tray to get your pop, when your pops are frozen, simply pull out your mini pop and enjoy! These pops are the perfect size for children, which makes them an excellent addition to any family, party, or other Zoku Slow Pop™ shapes!

Our experience has been great with this product. The pops truly are so easy to remove. You don’t have to run them under warm water to get them to come loose. Just a firm tug and out they pop!



The cavity that you fill with liquid is made from super soft silicone, so its very pliable. When you pull the pop out, the cavity inverts itself. My five year old can get herself a treat with no help from mom or dad. These pops are such a great little snack size that I don’t mind at all if she helps herself. They are also super easy to clean! You can just rinse it out and its good as new. Hand washing is recommended.

According to the directions you can also use this tray to make fun, round ice cubes. I haven't done this yet, but I’m excited to give it a try, come summer time!

We’ve frozen grape juice in ours to make a quick ice pop and we’ve also frozen blended fruit smoothies in it to make smoothie pops.

My recipe for Smoothie Pops:

2 cups frozen fruit (I use strawberries, peaches, pineapple and mango but feel free to blend it however you like)
1 cup fruit juice or vanilla yogurt (for this recipe, I used one cup apple juice and about 1 cup water)
water as needed to make the texture easy to pour

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Pour into pop molds and freeze for about one to two hours.

With the Mini Pop Mold, this made enough to fill all nine cavities and there was enough left over for my daughter and I to have a cup right away!


ZOKU has so many zany and wonderful products. I can’t wait to try the Fish Pop Molds and the Space Pop Molds! 

The ZOKU Mini-Pop mold is available in many local stores, directly from the ZOKU website, or from Amazon:
