Orange Julius Popsicles

Oh my! These popsicles taste just like an Orange Julius smoothie. So yum!

Hi friends! It’s starting to heat up out there – at least it is for those of us in sunny Arizona! Time to break out the lemonade and popsicles, right? A few weeks ago I shared 50 Perfect Popsicles – The Ultimate Summer Survival Guide and today I’m sharing part of the reason why I put that post together. We recently received a Zoku Original Quick Pop Maker for review! And you know that I had to put some research into what yummy popsicles we could make at home and we’re even sharing our own Orange Julius Popsicles recipe!

The Zoku Original Quick Pop Maker freezes ice pops in as little as seven minutes right on your counter top without electricity. You can quickly make striped pops, yogurt pops or (for the first time ever at home) flavored core pops. To enjoy Quick Pops at a moment’s notice, you simply store the compact base in your freezer. The kit that comes with the Zoku includes six durable, reusable plastic pop sticks that have unique ridged designs that allow pops to adhere securely, with special drip guards for tidy eating. And you know that’s a plus! Also, a specially designed Super Tool helps to quickly release the frozen treats from their molds. The maker can make up to 9 pops before refreezing the unit again. Doesn’t that sound fabulous? I thought so – and it was! Take a look at our pop maker in action…

How to use a Zoku Original Quick Pop Maker

It was just so easy! And I have to tell you, I’ve made so many popsicles since we’ve had it. I originally thought it would be for the boys, so we could control the sugar and dyes that went into their popsicles. I still have those plans, but I have to be honest that I have probably had more! And so far, my favorite recipe that I’ve come up with is for Orange Julius Popsicles! Do you remember Orange Julius? You probably still have one in a mall near you, but I’ve always loved that creamy orange drink! So I set out to make one into a popsicle. And I have to say – they turned out delicious! Here’s the recipe…

Orange Julius Popsicles

Do you love Orange Julius drinks? Then you'll love these quick and easy, homemade popsicles!
  • 6 oz thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 1 cup milk

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. In a bowl, stir together orange juice concentrate, milk, water, sugar and vanilla until well mixed.
  2. Pour orange mixture into Zoku Original Quick Pop Maker and wait 7 minutes or until frozen.
  3. Using the Super Tool, remove the popsicle from the maker and enjoy!
  4. Note: you can use this recipe with regular popsicle molds; allow to freeze as usual.

Oh my! These popsicles taste just like an Orange Julius smoothie. So yum!

So now are you excited about the Zoku Original Quick Pop Maker? You should be! It’s just such a fun little device to have. And no cords or electricity to mess with. Just stick it in your freezer and you’re ready to make popsicles in minutes, anytime! Be sure to check out Zoku and all the fun products they have to offer!

    I love to Zoku. I have the Quick Pop Maker, Chocolate Station, Character Kit, Slush & Shake Maker and the The Art of Slush Book. Me and my friends get together on the weekends and Zoku. All I can think about at night is what kind of popsicle to make the next day. I am single but I like to Zoku. Maybe I should move to the Big Island Of Hawaii and Zoku there. ( The Hilo Side )

  86. Savannah says:

    Those look amazing!
