Blueberry Lemon Pudding Pops Recipe
When we first attempted this recipe, we made homemade pudding. The mixture tasted amazing and seemed like it would be perfect for freezing. Once our popsicles were frozen, we pulled them out and they looked and tasted great. The problem was with the texture. Once they began to soften, the homemade pudding turned almost into a mush.
So we tried, tried again and finally came up with a super yummy and easier version of this delicious creamy pudding pop. Instead of making a cooked pudding, you just whisk the creamy ingredients together and pour straight in your popsicles molds over the fresh blueberries.
Fill a popsicle mold with blueberries. Using a funnel or a measure cup with a longer narrow spout, pour the pudding onto the blueberries. We really love this popsicle mold, because it makes 10 popsicles at a time! Also you use wood popsicles sticks and so you don’t need to worry about your molds getting lost somewhere out in your yard!
Once you pour the pudding over, and stick your popsicle sticks in, place in the freezer for 6+ hours. Because we literally stuffed the mold full of blueberries, we were able to get 10 pudding pops from it!
The results- LOVED THEM! They are perfect for small kids as the pudding softens up enough so it’s easy to eat.
