Schade Pops {fun with popsicles}

posted on: Monday, June 28, 2010

in honor of Karla Schade
who gave me the best idea on what to do with my mismatched ingredients.

I mean, all the ideas were good. Banana bread had already been done and the banofee pie seems great except that it takes more than 10 minutes to make, same as pudding. I needed something quick and easy for dessert and ice-cream was it, especially since I have a Zoku that makes popsicles in less than 10 minutes.  I don't normally suggest getting expsenive kitchen gadgets but I suggest getting a Zoku. We're having so much fun with ours.

Enzo's popsicle was not as pretty as Christian's (I made it, blame me) but still totally delicious

Schade Pops
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mashed bananas
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup melted chocolate
  1. In a blender mix the yogurt, bananas, and sweetened condensed milk.
  2. Pour a little of the melted chocolate in the Zoku. Christian successfully made his chocolate stay in the middle.
  3. Pour the banana mixture and let freeze (between 5-7 minutes)
If the Zoku is outside of your budget then consider spending a little bit more on good pop molds. Last year I got mine at the dollar store and after one use I had to throw it away, total junk. Then I spend $5 on one at Target which was better but the handle was pocky and Enzo never wanted to use it.

Here are better ones for less than $20. Click on the individual pictures for prices and descriptions.

  1. cool....literally. Did they taste good?

  2. they tasted perfect, very rich and creamy.

  3. According to the Zoku directions, if you pour the banana part in first, let it freeze a little (it freezes the outside first), then suck out the middle with a straw, then you could put in the chocolate. I'm skeptical, but that's probably the best way to keep it in the middle. I've been wanting to make an ice cream pop but haven't gotten down to it yet.

  4. I was just saying to my roomates, how I really want to invest in popsicle molds. Oh the summer fun we could have making tons of icy delicious creations!

  5. you should invest in popsicle molds specially good ones.

  6. I couldn't image a more refreshing treat during the summer.
