It is that time of year again! The sun is blazing and as things start to heat up, we turn to our freezers for ways to cool down. Usually the solutions we find are sugary frozen treats that can completely derail any weight loss progress we have made.
To help low carbers from feeling left out, we set out on a mission to find the perfect idea for keeping cool and low carb. We ended up discovering Zipzicles! These easy to use bags are perfect for creating waistline friendly popsicles!
All over all, we loved the quality of Zipzicles! These bags have a tight ziplock seal and are easy to open without causing any rips along the seams. One of our staff members used a bag to freeze water as a test and it worked out well…no leaks.
Our staff appreciated that Wizco also focused on creating a safe product by making Zipzicles BPA-free. These bags can be reused as well (wash with warm soapy water).
Zipzicles are very simple to use. Once you have created your popsicle mix, you can use a funnel, kitchen baster, or pinch the top of the bags open to fill each bag (there is a fill line printed on each bag so you know where to stop). After the bags are filled, put them in your freezer…that’s it! Before filling the bags, you can also write the date made and flavor (each bag as a special space for this on it).
A little trick worth mentioning: if you have a hard time getting your popsicle to come out of the Zipzicle, we found running it under a bit of warm water helped to loosen things up.
Zipzicles can be ordered directly from their company website, Amazon and purchased at a limited number of retailers (view list on their website). While they are easy to order online, for those of us who would rather visit a store to buy, it would be great if there were more retailers that carried the product.
We found the price of Zipzicles to be reasonable. For $2.99, you receive a pack of 12 popsicle bags. Remember, you can also reuse them if you decided to go that route!
We think Zipzicles are a great solution to help keep low carb dieters cool during the summer. If you are looking for a way to beat the heat, give them a try! Also, here is a GreenLite friendly cherry-limeade popsicle recipe you can use with your Zipzicles!
