It's the little things that matter. The ones that make all the difference. One of my very good friends asked me what I wanted for my birthday. At first I was thinking something practical. In the end I requested some popsicle moulds. But I was specific and wanted the Tovolo Robot Pop moulds.
Each robot is different and were very cute.
But popsicles? I never eat them. So the question was posed why I wanted them. I love ice cream but usually scoopable stuff rather than popsicles. And never the icy frozen sugar water stuff. But by making my own I could make sugar free popsicles including a peanut butter one.
The delivery came on Monday
Yep you can start seeing why it was on my list of desirable items!
And of course I had a day at home yesterday and made up something. I had some Coconut Cream Keffir, some frozen mango and a spoonful of rice malt syrup and whizzed it up. I had no idea if it would work out but wasn't too concerned as I just wanted to try out the moulds.
Excuse the mess in the background but I was super excited when I unveiled the robots and just took the photos.
Super cute!! and tasty too! The robots were super creamy and tasted great! Not sure as a scoopable ice cream it would work.
I may have become a convert. These are now nicely portioned, easy to make and cute. The only issue is that I can only make 4. The 'legs' match each of the individual moulds and can't be replaced with something else. I suppose I could put popsicle sticks in but they would slide out when demoulding. The demoulding process is a bit of a peeling exercise and the the 'pop' in popsicle is apparent!
I've filled the two moulds we used yesterday with more of the same mix (except I added a banana to the mix in the meantime... the mix is in the fridge for easy filling... )
So Robot Pop Moulds are a winner!
