I’m not sure how it’s already May, but somehow it is. And even though summer is still a month away, lately it’s been feeling like it’s here already–the humidity, the afternoon downpours, the heat. Even the spring produce is quickly being replaced by summer fruits and veggies at the farmers market. Clearly this could mean only one thing: it’s time for me to break out my Zoku again.
Last summer, after moving to North Carolina and being overwhelmed by the sticky humidity and oppressive heat, one of my first purchases was a Zoku Quick Pop Maker. And then the popsicle recipes soon followed. I just couldn’t stop making quick pops! There were Strawberry Mojito Pops and vegan Fat Elvis Pudding Pops and pops made with lychee. So! Many! Popsicles!
But those weren’t the only popsicles I made last summer. Some of my favorite popsicles weren’t much more than fruit and simple syrup. Just a little bit of simple syrup, because summer fruit is sweet enough that you don’t need to add much to it. While I’ve always loved those fruit-only popsicles that they sell in stores, homemade ones are even better–the flavors are brighter, the colors are deeper, and without a doubt they are healthier too. This Raspberry Ginger Popsicles recipe is one of those simple, homemade fruit pops–light, refreshing, and the perfect dessert for a hot summer day.

Guess what? Zoku wants to give one Oh My Veggies reader a Quick Pop Maker so you too can make icy summer treats in minutes! There’s no mandatory entry; simply leave a separate comment below for any of the methods of entry you choose. (So if you do 5 of the entries, you’ll leave 5 comments.)
Disclosure: Zoku is sponsoring this giveaway, but I bought my own Zoku Quick Pop Maker and received no form of compensation from Zoku for posting this.
I developed this recipe specifically for the Zoku Quick Pop Maker--it makes 3 Quick Pops and it's easy to double or triple to make up to 9 pops, the most you can make before having to refreeze the unit. Of course, if you don't have a Zoku, you can make these in regular popsicle molds too.
