Summer How-to: Homemade Freezies

Homemade ice pops have been all the rage this summer and last, but out at the cabin without our Popsicle moulds, I wondered if it would be possible to make our own freezies instead. Ice candy – fancy ice pops frozen like freezies – is popular in the Phillipines, and you can buy long, thin bags to make your own on Amazon.com. But it’s totally possible to use snack-size freezer bags, folded over to make a long, thin ice pop. Here’s how!

Pour your choice of liquid into a snack-size zip-top baggie – 1/4-1/3 of a cup is about right. Fruit juice works well, or leftover smoothie, or flat pop – carbonated pop will freeze with bubbles inside, which is kind of cool but makes for a crumbly freezie.

Fold it over itself so that the liquid is about an inch wide. If you like, tape it – I just stack them directly on a shelf in the freezer, or on a small baking sheet. Folded-side-down they’ll stay closed until they’re frozen. They’ll freeze quickly – once they’re frozen solid, open them up and eat!
