Monster-Sized Giveaway

Enter the Monster-Sized Giveaway by entering the code from specially-marked Juicy Juice products. There are about 186,350 instant win prizes awarded every day thru January 31, 2014. You’ll find your unique code on the inside of the Juicy Juice packaging or label. We already won two Monster Calls and one Digital Book! With the help of my kids, we turned this healthy drink into a Monstersicle. Join us for our shopping trip at Walmart shown in my Google+ Album. Let me show you how we made the Monstersicles!

How To Make Monstersicles

To make your Monstersicles, start with Juicy Juice single-serve boxes (6.75 oz.). Flip the boxes upside down and unfold the bottom of the box . Cut the seam of the box with scissors to open up the box but still have about 0.5 inches between the top level of the juice and the top edge of the box. Insert a plastic spoon with the spoon-side down. To keep the spoon handle in the middle of the box, use tape across the top of the box. You should be able to get the edge of the spoon to rest against the seam at the bottom of the box which will help keep your spoon centered. Add in a few Monsters University fruit snacks, but not too many or you’ll have a really short handle on your Monstersicle. Freeze overnight then remove from the freezer and peel-off the box. I cut a small slit in the top of the box to help get the peeling started.

Monstersicles: So Easy It's Scary

Wasn’t that easy? I wanted to think of creative ways to make popsicles without using popsicle molds. The juice box is the perfect size to use for a popsicle mold. And with a little tape you can easily position that spoon handle in the middle of the juice box. We call them “Monstersicles” because we used Monsters University products to make them plus they are “monster-sized” popsicles. My kids are playing with their new Monsters University toys and using their imagination to act-out Monsters University scenes (before seeing the movie). I’m sure once we see the movie they’ll be acting out scenes from the movie in their Imaginext Monsters University Scare Factory.

What a great idea! I would have never thought to cut open the box and use that as the mold!

Thanks – hardest part was figuring out how to make the “stick” stay in the middle – but the tape worked perfectly!

Great idea!!! I’d add a coffee filter to the bottom to prevent drips from staining clothes and making a sticky mess on hands.

Great idea! I’ve also seen cupcake liners used to catch popsicle drips.
