I recently tested recipes for The Art of Slush by Jennifer Farley. (Zoku LLC, 2013). Zoku makes the Zoku Quick Pop Maker and has just introduced the Slush & Shake Maker. The recipes range from fresh fruit slushies to rich, creamy shakes and smoothies. There’s also a great recipe for French fries!
Using the Slush & Shake Maker is fun. Once you prepare the ingredients and pour it into the Maker, you stir and, of course, taste. The recipes changed not only in texture as they froze, but in flavor profiles, too. The Chocolate Amaretto Slush was a wonderful surprise; it tasted exactly like a fudgesicle, something I haven’t had since I was a kid.
My all-time favorite is the Key Lime Avocado Smoothie. I couldn’t imagine how this recipe would come together, let alone taste. It has a luscious mouthfeel and delightful tang; I couldn’t get enough of it!!
The Maker comes in four vibrant colors and the inner core, which you keep ever ready in the freezer; each fits into a plastic sleeve, which prevents frozen fingers 🙂 and condensation. The sleek spoon scrapes the sides, mixes and best of all you can slurp while you stir.
The product is available at zokuhome.com and at Williams-Sonoma and the cookbook is coming soon with recipes to suit everyone, including gluten-free and dairy-free diets; lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.
