I’ve got a lot of favorite summer desserts, but one of my absolute favorites is pudding.  (Just a couple weeks ago, I made this Southern Banana Pudding…it didn’t last long around my house!)  Earlier this week, I decided to create a recipe for pudding pops.

Do you remember pudding pops?  I grew up in the 80’s, and I can still remember the commercials on tv for pudding pops!  Looking back, those must have been a permanent item on the weekly grocery list in our house.  My sister and I would always fight over the chocolate and vanilla swirl…so it should come as no surprise that I chose Chocolate + French Vanilla Pudding Pops as my first flavor to make!

This pudding recipe is really simple, and doesn’t require many ingredients at all.  In addition to milk, I used International Delight coffee creamer…and wow, that was an easy way to add a ton of flavor!  The best part is you can use any of International Delight’s flavors to create different flavored pudding pops.

And if you start mixing flavors like I did here, then there are literally hundreds of flavor combinations!  What about Vanilla Caramel Crème + Hazelnut?  Or maybe Irish Crème + White Chocolate Mocha?  The possibilities are endless…and delicious!

I poured the pudding into plastic popsicle molds, and then I used wooden sticks instead of the plastic sticks which come with the molds.  You certainly can use the plastic sticks, but I wanted to make these a bit more authentic.  

Hint: If you want to use your own sticks, just cut 4 slots in a piece of cardboard that correspond to the tops of each mold.  Then place the cardboard over the pop mold, and it will help hold the sticks in place while they are in the freezer. These pudding pops are absolutely delicious! In fact, I suspect that there will always be a batch of these in the freezer this summer. Yum!

To Assemble Pudding Pops

  • Insert popsicle sticks (see note in post about using own wooden sticks) and freeze 5-6 hours or until solid.

Notes

To remove pudding pops from molds, place mold in a bowl of warm water for a few seconds. This will help the pops release.

    1. Thanks, Kate! I always loved pudding pops as a kid…so of course I am partial to any recipe that takes me back to the 1980s. 🙂

  1. A sugar free, low-calorie option for these is omitting the sugar and cornstarch. Use sugar free pudding and sugar free creamer. Wonderful!

  2. I am obsessed with desserts! Definitely chocolate vanilla swirled pudding-pops will be yummy! I’m also gonna pin this post on my Pinterest board my followers will love it. Thx for sharing recipe David, i definitely add it to my cookbook!
