#Jackyled Universal 3 in 1 Travel Plug Adapter

***This is a sponsored post. I received a 2-pack of Jackyled Universal 3 in 1 Travel Adapters for free, in exchange for my review. All opinions are genuinely my own.***

So this week I had the opportunity to test these Jackyled travel adapters, which can be purchased on Amazon here.

This adapter is made for travel in the UK and Hong Kong, and can fit virtually any plug (It does state in the Amazon product description it is NOT compatible with the large South African plug).

As you can see from the pictures, I tested the product with my cell phone charger, and my laptop charger (the FIRST 2 things I'd pack to bring with me!).

#LEBICE Popsicle Molds

I received a set of #LEBICE Popsicle Molds in exchange for my honest, unbiased, review.

The set (which you can purchase here) comes with 6 molds, which is perfect for my family. The molds are also BPA free, and dishwasher safe (these are perks, in my book).

What I love the most about these is that you can get creative, and add any ingredients that you want. I like that I get to create what I want because HEY....I love being in my kitchen! It's also nice to know that you know exactly what's going into your treat. Also....there's plenty of variety for making HEALTHY snacks for my family!

The set I received came with a small complimentary recipe booklet (THANK YOU!!!), from which I followed the recipe for Strawberry Creamsicles for our first go-round.

The recipe I followed was a simple layering of pureed strawberries, and Greek yogurt. I was a little leery at first, thinking I'd accidentally filled the molds too high (because the ingredients can expand when they freeze). Luckily that wasn't the case though!

About 6 hours later, and VOILA!!!! The creamsicles turned out BEAUTIFULLY!!! They were also quite delicious!

I honestly can't wait to make more, and I can't wait to get my kids involved (I'm letting them choose the ingredients with the next batch).

If you're looking to make your own treats this summer, I highly recommend these! I'm actually going to invest in some more, just to have extras on hand when friends and family come to visit!
