Summertime Sweet Treats


I’ve always had a fascination with making ice cream and popsicles.  My mom used to buy us the little plastic popsicles molds when we were little, we had so much fun coming up with different flavors of popsicles by freezing juice, fruits, and other drinks.  They kept us very entertained during the summer!

I’m still a kid at heart, so making popsicles is still something that I look forward to in the summer. Although I have changed it up a little in the flavor department, pudding pops are my new favorite type of “popsicle” to make. While I hear that they’ve been around a long time, I hadn’t had one until about 2 years ago. The flavor combinations are really endless!

I made a Cranberry Vanilla Pudding Pop by combining vanilla pudding and dried cranberries. The pudding is icy cold and the cranberries are the perfect burst of tartness.

Cranberry Vanilla Pudding Pops

What you need:
1 box of instant vanilla pudding mix
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 cup dried cranberries
Popsicle mold




What to do:

Step 1: Combine the pudding mix and milk in a mixing bowl. Whisk together for about two minutes or until it thickens. Set aside.

Step 2: Fill the popsicle molds with some of the dried cranberries.


Step 3: Pour some of the pudding into each mold.

Step 4: Using a butter knife or a skewer, swirl the pudding and dried cranberries together.


Step 5: Add more cranberries and more pudding, swirl together. Continue until each mold is full.

Step 6: Place the tops/handles into each pop.


Step 7: Place the pudding pops into a freezer and allow them to freeze overnight.

Step 8: When ready to serve, remove from freezer and run molds under warm water for a few seconds.


Step 9: Gently remove the pudding pops from the mold and enjoy!
