We have been having lots of fun making our own popsicles this summer. Here are a couple of our favorite recipes.
Root Beer Float Pudding Pops
What You Need:
- 1 box Vanilla pudding – 4 serving or 6- it just depends on how strong of a vanilla flavor you want it.
- 1 cup vanilla ice cream – Bryers now carries Lactose free, if you need it, and it is really good
- 1 cup milk – lactose milk also works
- 1 cup water (may want a little more if you use the 6 serving box)
- 2 -3 tsp root beer extract – depending on how strong of a root beer flavor you want
- Popsicle mold or cups – size is your choice!
Step 1: Combine all ingredients together.
Step 2: Mix everything together. In a blender is quick, but messy to get out once mixed and in a bowl uses extra energy!
Step 3: Put in cups or popsicle mold Freeze for 1.5 hours and then place sticks in, if you do not of the sticks that come with the mold. Will be solid after 4 hours and even better overnight.
Step 4: To remove from cup/mold, run cup under warm water for at least 15 seconds to help remove the popsicle. It usually took me longer than 15 seconds. A good squeeze or 2 to the sides helps and I knew I was close once I could see a few tiny air bubbles. Do not do it too long or it will melt the popsicle! =)
Step 5: Eat and Enjoy or remove and package them separately in plastic baggies with a tie to enjoy later. I am going to make a ton and stock up. We cannot keep these around long enough!
Here is another fun recipe:
What You Need:
- 1 package pudding
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup vanilla ice cream
- Chopped up fruit
Step 1: Mix milk and pudding together. Add chopped fruit. The strawberries were so yummy….possibly better than the root beer pudding pops! We had some pudding/ice cream/milk mix set aside from making the Root Beer Pops. That is why we have the small containers.
Step 2: Put pudding mix in popsicle molds and place in freezer. After 1.5 hours insert popsicle sticks (if needed) and wait for 4 hours to eat. Yum, yum, yum!
