Sunsella sent me this product for review. Thoughts are mine, por supuesto.
You know what I am sick and tired of? I am so sick of being bombarded with edibles that are NOT food. It’s almost embarrassing for humans that there is now a “real food” movement. We are buying books and reading up on how to eat real food. Have we strayed that far?
Why, yes. Yes, we have.
Let me be clear: I am not discluding myself from this idea. No no no. It is, in fact, very hard to go to the store and buy solely real food. Mike and I have been trying it this past month, and we still haven’t made an entire trip preservative and chemical free. Gross.
So, before you click away because you think I am going to school you on how you need to eat clean and go all caveman, let me get to my point: I think a large part of clean eating is sucking it up and making some of your own convenience food. Tell me you’re like me and go into the kitchen and think, “there isn’t anything to eat – just things to make something to eat.” I guess it’s time for me to grow up and make some things to eat.
I decided to start with popsicles. So, I told Mike I wanted popsicle molds. But, the real food fairy descended upon my blog and brought me Sunsella Mighty Pops Molds before I could even say Red Dye #40.
I made Ellen a batch of Greek Blueberry popsicles (small tub of Greek yogurt, pint of blueberries, honey for sweetness, puree), poured it into the molds (it was the perf amount for the six molds in the pack), and froze them overnight.
The next morning Ellen asked for ice cream for breakfast, and boy, was she in luck. Wink.
The molds did not leak while freezing, even when I put them on their side.
The popsicle was a bit tough to squeeze out of the mold, but I ran it under warm water for about 10 seconds, and it popped right up.
They washed super easily in the dishwasher – I put them on the top shelf.
Full Disclosure: I am going to use them for frozen adult popsicles. Should that be part of my review? Yes. I’m thinking some sort of margarita concoction. Is there some sort of 21+ popsicle that I should be aware of? Don’t ice me out. Har.
But seriously, tell me.
