Pudding Pops: Product Review 017
It’s summer! If your kids are like mine, then they are constantly raiding the freezer for popsicles. I wouldn’t mind, except for the straight shot of glucose they get from each frozen sugar stick and my kids open the freezer door so much that they’ve actually defrosted things in my freezer and I had to throw food away because of the health risk!
I can’t babysit the freezer door all day, but I can give them healthier options for frozen snacks. One such option is to make your own pudding pops. They are arguably more healthy because they have milk in them and it can be fun to experiment with different kinds.
Here is the easiest pudding pop recipe that you can make with any flavor of pudding.
Here is a recipe for healthier chocolate pudding pops that I found on Pinterest.
On the cooking website, Our Best Bites, there are some great ideas and recipes for making your own pudding pops too.
I bought molds for pudding pops at a local store, and Google has a lot to choose from.
Instead of molds, I like filling 3 ounce plastic cups with the pudding mixture and sticking popsicle sticks in after they’ve been freezing for an hour. Continue to freeze them for a couple more hours, then dip the bottom of the cup in hot water and they slide right out.
I can make a lot more pudding pops in plastic cups than in a mold and they are a size perfect for kids. As for the pudding mix, I’ve used both the store brand and a name brand pudding and my kids don’t seem to notice the difference.
So the next time you or your kids want a treat, have some homemade pudding pops ready and feel good about cooling off!
