Summer treats

8 Sep

So I’ve been trying to not bake anything much lately. Granted, things get difficult anyway when you’ve got 3 little ones vying for your attention to varying degrees. Completing a task, any task, becomes very difficult! We went to the PNE a couple of days after it opened, got completely soggy since it poured rain that day (big surprise this summer!) but I came across my beloved ZOKU in the marketplace, as we tried to briefly escape the rain. I had seen it on others’ blogs and looked it up, but forgot all about it until we stumbled across it at the PNE.

For those not familiar, it’s a popsicle maker, but WHAT a popsicle maker. It makes them similar to how you would make ice cream at home, in that you freeze the container your mixture goes in, so it basically freezes your mixture very quickly and from the outside in. The exciting part being that you can do some really cool things with it, such as layers and diagonal patterns. You can add bits of fruit, etc to make it look kind of cool.

It’s too bad I didn’t come across it earlier this summer, but since it’s been a very wet and cool summer anyway, it really doesn’t matter.

Here’s to some creative popsicling!
