Strawberry Lime Pops

Posted by SnOwySnOwy - Filed under , , ,

My new toy, Zoku Quick Pop Maker, had arrived!  I purchased it from the Indigo online store when they were 50% off and free shipping to an Indigo/Chapter store of your choice, not a bad deal.

For the first time, I followed exactly the recipe from the Zoku Blog -- Strawberry Lime Pops.  It was very simple to make and the pops popped right out of the maker at exactly the time suggested.  This recipe requires 0.5 tablespoon of sugar per pop plus the sugar in the limeade so we allowed Baby J to licked it only a few times. I would definitely decrease the amount of sugar if I make it again.

The taste was OK but Hubby still likes Häagen-Dazs more. ~.~

Strawberry Lime Pops


  • 10 ounces fresh strawberries; stems removed, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons sugar (*more if necessary)
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 ounces limeade; divided use


In a blender, puree strawberries, sugar, lime zest, and water, until smooth, set aside.
Remove Zoku Quick Pop Maker from the freezer. Insert sticks.
Pour 1 ounce strawberry puree into each Zoku Quick Pop cavity. Allow this layer to freeze completely.
Next pour ½ ounce limeade into each cavity. Allow this layer to freeze completely.
Finally pour another layer of the strawberry puree up to the fill line in each cavity. Allow this layer to freeze completely.
Remove the pops with the Super Tool. Repeat with remaining pops.
