I have been loving popsicles lately and I have eaten more than my fair share so far this Summer. It has been so hot, that cold treats are a must to help cool down. I had some half-and-half leftover from this homemade vanilla ice cream and I have been craving pistachio lately, so I combined the two and made some pudding pops! So Good! They are so smooth and creamy and your kids will love them!
The possibilities are endless with this easy recipe. You can create so many different flavors. You can use any flavor of pudding or layer different pudding flavors. You can add crushed up cookies, chopped fruit or different flavored extracts. You could even make a family night out of it and let everyone create their own flavor.
Frozen Pistachio Pudding Pops
adapted from: Our Best Bites
1 3/4 c. half-and-half
1 (3.4 oz.) box instant pistachio pudding
1/4 tsp. almond extract, opt.
Whisk together all ingredients and pour/spoon into popsicle molds. Add a popsicle stick to each one and freeze for several hours or until frozen. Yield: about 8 pops. Keep in mind that the number of popsicles you get will vary depending on the size of molds you use.
*Notes: Our Best Bites tested all kinds of dairy combos and they discovered that half-and-half works best and will give you a richer and creamier texture. You can substitute milk, but your pops will be a little icier.
