Icy poles

It's been a long time between posts, and even though I've been home full time for two months, I have to confess to not doing a lot of cooking recently. Mostly I've been busy with projects around the house, but it's also been pretty consistently hot this summer, and not at all conducive to baking.
Instead of baking, Ive been freezing using my new Quick Pop Maker. 

Recipes so far:

Creamy banana

2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Blend then freeze as directed. Makes 3

Peaches and cream

125ml peach nectar
30ml cream
50ml milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Blend then freeze as directed. Makes 3

Virgin pina colada pops

1 pineapple, peeled and chopped
425ml coconut milk
Blend then freeze as directed. Makes 9

Summer stripes

1/4 cup pomegranate juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup coconut water
Pour equal amounts of pomegranate juice into each mould. Freeze. Add equal amounts of orange juice to each mould. Freeze. Add coconut water and allow to finish freezing. Makes 3

Frozen milkshakes

3/4 cup milk
Topping to taste
Blend, then freeze as directed. Makes 3. 

Drip-free icy poles

1 pkt jelly crystals
500ml water
Make jelly mix as directed. Chill without setting. Pour into moulds and freeze as directed. Makes 9. 

While I love the Quick Pop Maker for its convenience - icy poles are only 7 minutes away at any time - any of these could be made just as easily in traditional moulds, plastic cups or even lined muffin trays as long as you've got a way to keep the sticks upright.
