Mr. Popper’s Penguins Giveaway Plus Recipes for Frozen Treats!

Mr. Popper’s Penguins comes out on DVD December 6th.  You can buy it at Amazon here – they even have a cute gift pack with a penguin in it.  This is a great feel-good movie for the holidays.  I just loved all of the cute penguin antics!  Little Miss loved the parts of the movie featuring the penguins, of course!  I thought Jim Carrey was good in this movie – I’m not a fan of all his movies, but in this one he wasn’t too over-the-top for me.  I hope you enjoy these recipes inspired by the movie! 

Top 5 Ice Cold Recipes

Debuting on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download December 6

Mr. Popper sure had his hands full with all those penguins – too bad he didn’t have a handy guide for making fun, ice-cold treats for them! Here, you will find a recipe guide for making slushies and popsicles, and other fantastic ideas on how to turn ice into edible and refreshing desserts that the kids will love! You will get an ice-cold kick out of how easy and fun these recipes are to make for all ages.

Jim Carrey (A Christmas Carol) stars in MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS, available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download December 6th. The whole family will be full of laughs watching Mr. Popper, a driven businessman, inherit six adorable and mischievous penguins. As Mr. Popper quickly gets attached to his winged roommates, his life quickly unravels: the deal he’s long been working on with a formidable socialite, Mrs. Van Gundy (Angela Lansbury), is derailed and Popper almost lands in jail. While Popper’s penguins turn his swank New York apartment into a snowy winter wonderland – they teach him valuable lessons about family – human and otherwise!

1) Popsicles

Popsicles are the classic go-to frozen treat for kids and grownups alike! Try making fruit popsicles – all you need is popsicle molds (or disposable cups and popsicle sticks), fresh fruit chunks (try strawberries, pineapples, kiwis, mangoes, or a mix of whatever fruits you like), sugar, light corn syrup, lemon juice, and vanilla yogurt. Blend everything but the yogurt for two to three minutes, then add in the yogurt until the mixture is smooth. Then, pour the mixture into your popsicle molds, insert your sticks, and freeze for at least four hours. Enjoy at your leisure!

2) Chocolate Snow Ice Cream

If you live somewhere where it snows, Chocolate Snow Ice Cream is really simple to make, and lots of fun! All you need is a big bowl of clean snow (you can leave a bowl outside to collect the snow), one can of sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate syrup or cocoa powder (to taste). You could also use strawberry syrup instead. Since the sweetened condensed milk is so thick, it helps hold the melting snow together and adds a lot of sweetness to your ice cream. Once you have all of your ingredients gathered, all you have to do is mix them up in a big bowl and enjoy!

3) Slushies

If you like slushies, try making Frosty Fruit Cups, a fun, kid-friendly take on the popular slushie! All you need in crushed pineapple, bananas, frozen sweetened strawberries, chopped walnuts, and foil or paper lined muffin cups. First, blend the crushed pineapple (with its juice) until it’s smooth. Then, add in the rest of the fruit (with their juices) and blend well. Next, pour a little bit of the fruit mixture into your lined muffin cups and sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Freeze for at least two hours. Kids can help make them, they’re individually sized, and it’s a terrific way to get children to eat fruit!

4) Shaved Ice

You most likely eat shaved ice in a snow cone, but if you’re looking for a different treat made from shaved ice, try the Korean favorite, Patbingsu. You need a bowl of shaved ice, sweetened condensed milk, red bean paste, matcha powder, fruit cocktail, mochi, ice cream, and any other toppings you desire. First, top the shaved ice with sweetened condensed milk, then add red bean paste and sprinkle matcha powder over that. Then, add fruit cocktail and mochi (as well as any other toppings you want), and top it off with your favorite ice cream. Enjoy with your family!

5) Italian Ice

Many cultures have their own take on Italian Ice (like the delicious Mexican raspado). If you want to make your own at home, try this amazing banana pineapple Italian ice recipe. You need apple juice, mashed bananas, crushed pineapple, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, and then pour the mixture into a square dish. Freeze for two hours, then transfer to a bowl and beat until smooth. Next, return the mixture to your square dish, and freeze until firm. Remove from the freezer about 30 minutes before serving, and garnish with mint!

    I am a pet lover so I love Jim Carrey’s “Ace Ventura Pet Detective”. I have a question with “Chocolate Snow Ice Cream”, is it safe to use snow for this? or do I need to wash it first?

  7. I love all movies from Jim Carrey ( I think he is hilarious), but we have not seen Mr Popper’s penguins yet. Maybe that is a good idea to take the kids to the movies during this holiday season.
