Rainbow fun: Rainbow Pudding Pops Recipe

we love popsicles around here, especially pudding pops! so we made some delicious rainbow banana pudding pops yesterday which are super simple to make….and they come out so pretty you just have to smile! the best thing about using pudding for the rainbow is that you don’t have to wait for each colored layer to set before adding the next color. since the pudding is thick, you can just layer them all at once. these are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or any day for that matter.

how to make pudding pops

2 – large boxes (5.1 oz) instant pudding mix (light colored)
food coloring
Dixie Cups (5 oz.)
popsicle sticks

• prepare pudding according to the directions. (you may need to add a little more milk to make the pudding pourable.)
• let pudding stand until it has thickened a bit.
• divide into 5 parts and color each part with food coloring.
• layer each color of pudding into small dixie cups.
• cover with tin foil. insert popsicle sticks.
• chill in refrigerator 2 hours, then place in freezer to completely freeze.
• to eat, peal off dixie cup paper and enjoy your pudding pop!
• makes 10 – 12 popsicles

happy eating!

    well, if you do it like me you can use drinking cups out of plastic or better-silicone. To get the Popsicles out, just put them under hot water for a few seconds and oull out or let them stand fr a short time. its better than throwing away those cups all the time and buying new ones because you can use silicon molds or plastic drinking cups for forever..

      Just be careful to use plastic. Check that your plastics doesn’t have the toxic BPA (bisphenol A) or PVC (phthalates).
