How to Make Rainbow Pudding Pops


Ever since I spotted these rainbow pudding pops, I knew I had to give them a try.  I love vanilla pudding, but had never even heard of a pudding pop.  Well, let’s just say it was love at first lick.  Seriously, these are rainbowlicious.


Whatcha Need:

  • instant vanilla pudding mix
  • milk
  • food coloring
  • mixing bowl
  • electric mixer (or whisk)
  • paper or plastic cups
  • popsicle sticks
  • extra bowls for dividing

  • Mix pudding up according to directions on the box.  I use two boxes and mix it all up in my Kitchen aid.  A whisk would work too, but I look for any excuse to use my mixer.
  • Evenly divide the mix into 4 (or 5 or 6.. however many you want) bowls- one for each color.
  • Add a couple drops of food coloring to each bowl and stir until you reach the desired color.
  • Spoon the pudding into your cups.  You can smooth each layer.  I just jiggle mine a little bit and call it good.  (That sounded dirty.)
  • Place into the freezer for a few hours until completely frozen.  Or you can cheat- just go ahead and eat one right out of the cup.
  • When you take a cup out of the freezer, warm it with your hands and the pudding pop will “pop” right out.

I think those paper cups you buy for the bathroom would be perfect for this.  The cups I bought are too big.  They work fine, but Bryson can’t eat a whole one and the pudding pops are too big & heavy.

He gave them a definite thumbs up (frozen or not) and asks for them on a regular basis now.  I like that they are a breeze to whip up- you spend more time waiting on them to freeze than actually making them. 

What fun treats are you making this summer?
