Zipsicles are a great way to make your own ice-blocks. Just fill, zip closed, and freeze! Perfect for on the go, picnics, and parties of all kinds. I love the idea of leaving some at school for my gluten intolerant son to have as a treat when the other kids are having something.

Perfect for children that have special dietary considerations or parents just wanting healthy choices for their children . Say goodbye to the ready-made sugar-filled popsicle-type treats now that you can easily and conveniently provide other choices.

The kids can take them along when out and about, parents don't have to worry about a mess, and there are no sticks to lose or cause injuries.

Each pack contains 18 Ice block bags that you can create your own favourite recipes for.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are the Zipzicle bags BPA-free? Are they recyclable?
A: Yes, Zipzicle™ ice-pop bags are 100% virgin plastic and contain no plastizers. Specifically, they are made of FDA approved Food Grade LDPE (low density polyethylene) and LLDPE (linear low density polyethylene), that is 3 Mil Thick. This type of plastic is BPA-free. Zipzicle™ bags are also recyclable.

Q: Is there anything I should not freeze?
A: It is not recommended using Zipzicle™ ice-pop bags to freeze soft drinks / soda. Heavily carbonated drinks expand as they freeze and can make quite a mess, regardless of the type of container used.

Q: Can Zipzicle bags be reused?
A: With this new bag design and more durable material it is much easier to reuse! The side seals have also been reinforced. Simply wash with warm soapy water, rinse and air dry. Baby bottle drying racks work great for air drying. For safety, be sure to check the bag to ensure it is intact, especially when children are involved. Some choose to reuse whilst others choose to simply use and recycle.

Q: Can I microwave a Zipzicle to soften it up?
A: No. Putting the Zipzicle™ bag in the microwave is not recommended. It can create hot spots within the filling that can cause burns while eating the Zipzicle™ ice-pop. It is better to hold the Zipzicle™ ice-pop under warm water for a few seconds.

Directions for making Zipzicle™ treats 
 
Mixing Ingredients
Choose one of our recipes from the blog category ZIPSICLES RECIPES or create one of your own. Each Zipzicle™ ice-pop bag holds 1/3 cup of liquid. Make one, or make a dozen. The choice is yours:
1 c filling = 3 Zipzicle™ ice-pops
2 c filling = 6 Zipzicle™ ice-pops
3 c filling = 9 Zipzicle™ ice-pops
4 c filling = 12 Zipzicle™ ice-pops 
  
Tips for Filling 
Note: Carbonated liquids are not well suited for freezing due to expansion.

Filling Zipzicles is easy using a funnel or kitchen baster.

Funnel: Place narrow portion of funnel inside the top of the Zipzicle™ bag and hold with one hand. With the other hand, slowly pour 1/3 c mix in funnel. Stop when mix reaches fill line. Zip closed and place in an upright position within freezer. A mug or other container works great.

Baster: Lightly pinch top of Zipzicle™ bag to keep open. Fill baster with mix and release into the bag. Stop when mix reaches fill line. Zip closed and place in an upright position within freezer. A mug or other container works great.

Open Top: Lightly pinch top of Zipzicle™ bag to keep open. Fill bag with mix (works best for thin mixes). Stop when mix reaches fill line. Zip closed and place in an upright position within freezer. A mug or other container works great. 
 
Freezing Zipzicles
The freezing time for Zipzicle™ treats will vary depending on temperature setting, ingredients, and arrangement. Zipzicle™ treats can be placed upright in a container or mug before putting in freezer. Once frozen, Zipzicle™ treats can be placed on ice in a cooler to take with you on the go.

    Great product for healthy kids snacks
    A definite must have for healthy kids for summer. They are really easy to use and good quality. I do have a Boon Grass Drying Rack so cleaning and drying them was easy too. The kids loved them!
