Eco-Friendly Friday: Another Must-Have Holiday Gift & a WINNER!

First things first. I know everyone has been anxiously awaiting this giveaway so with out further ado, let me congratulate commenter #25

You are the lucky winner of the $25 e-giftcard! Please e-mail me your information to adailydoseofdavis at gmail dot com and we will get that to you ASAP!!! Now...on to another great holiday gift that I just had to share...

I know popsicles are usually the last thing anyone thinks about during the winter, but at my house...popsicles are a year-round treat. So when I came across these fabulous new Orka by Mastrad Popsicle Molds...I just HAD to have them...

Making your own popsicles is not only easy and cost-effective, but also super fun for your kids...

There are hundreds of delicious popsicle recipes on the internet, but since it is the holiday season, I thought I would contribute a very Christmasy recipe I found on the Food Network.

Egg Nog Ice Pops

  • 1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large pasteurized egg yolk (see Note)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup light rum
  • Special equipment: Wooden ice pop sticks

  • Directions: Place all of the ingredients in a blender jar and blend to combine. Pour into a ice pop mold and insert wooden sticks. Freeze until set, at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Cook's Note: Do be aware this recipe calls for a raw egg yolk, so please use pasteurized eggs. But if you prefer, you can substitute the egg yolk with 2 tablespoons store-bought egg nog.

I think these molds are not only fabulous to own, but also great to give as a gift! I thought it might be fun to give someone a set of these molds with a basket full of ingredients (and/or printed recipes) so they have everything they need to get started!!

Well that's all I have for this week friends! Eco-Friendly Friday will be back in the new year with TONS of great reviews and giveaways. But until sure to take advantage of's free shipping offer before it's too late!! We hope you have a very Green Christmas!!

  1. I am glad to see you recommend pasteurized eggs. Not many people know that using raw eggs can be very harmful, especially for youth or the elderly. I use them and have used them for over 3 years now. I can rest assure that when I;m making cookie dough with my little ones at home, I know they can lick the spoon and don't have to worry about them getting sick. Thanks and
    Happy Holidays.
