zoku!

i have been after this bad boy for awhile, but when i tried to talk tim into it while our wedding gift cards burned holes in our pockets, he turned me down cause of its daunting price. after tonight though, he is a believer!
drea posted about this wonderful contraption yesterday and it stirred up my desire to own one. i called up tim, and by the end of the convo he was convinced to stop at macy's on the way home and get me one. best husband ever. it also helped he was able to score it for ten dollars off when he used our macy's card, total cost was forty dollars. what does it do you ask? well, i makes awesome on a stick in minutes - you can check it out here.
once the standard refreeze time of twenty four hours had passed i went straight to the zoku blog to check out some recipes. once i figured out i didn't have all of the ingredients for any of these yet, i came up with my own mixture. i am sure this would work with regular popsicle mold too!
layer one:
3/4 c. organic raspberry yogurt
1 c. milk
1 tblsp. sugar
1/2 of a lemon, juiced.

layer two:
3/4 c. organic vanilla yogurt
1 c. milk
1 tblsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla flavor/extract

whisk together, then pour into layers as you like. yum!

i can't wait to try some more of these! pumpkin spice latte pops? um, yes. berry mojitto pops? please. and, mimosa pops? done.

AWESOME, I want one! What a fantastic way to get in all your fruit! (And I bet veggies could be snuck in there too?)
