On Wednesday, when we had our pajama day, I decided that popsicles were in order.
Since Gabriel and Summer both had coughs, I hoped that the pudding pops would be soothing on their throats. We were preparing to go out of town, so I did not have much fresh fruit on hand. I looked in the pantry and found chocolate and vanilla pudding, and I knew that it would be perfect for pops.
Chocolate and Vanilla Pudding Pops
1 small box instant chocolate pudding mix
1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix
4 cups milk
- In one bowl add the chocolate pudding mix.
- In a separate bowl, add the vanilla pudding mix.
- Pour 2 cups of milk into each of the bowls.
- Whisk both separate bowls of pudding mix.
- Pour half chocolate and half vanilla into each of the popsicle molds.
- Continue with all of the popsicle molds.
- Freeze for 3-4 hours.
After the popsicle success last week, Gabriel immediately turned in his order for this week. He wanted Pina Colada Popsicles. It sounded great to me, so I gave it a try.
I am not sure why, but the popsicles did not hold up quite as well. They were a little stubborn when it came to getting them out of the molds.
However, they were absolutely delicious. And, in our home, taste trumps looks with food almost 100% of the time.
We are trying out different smoothies each week so that we can keep track of them and determine our favorites.
When Gabriel woke up feeling under the weather this week, the one thing that sounded good to him was a smoothie. His only request was that it have banana in it.
So, I got to work on our latest creation. We thought that it turned out really good…so good that he requested it the next morning, too. That is always the definition of a recipe success in my book.
