It’s summer time, and you know what that means? It’s time for frozen treats! It’s very easy to make your own popsicles at home, and great because they are usually less expensive than buying them at the store, and you can customize them to any flavor your kiddos enjoy. This recipe made 13 popsicles, which means that each one only had about 60 calories! It was pretty satisfying for a 60 calorie snack.
What you need:
-1 box of instant pudding mix
-2 cups 2% milk (or whatever is called for on your box)
-1/2 cup whipped topping/cool whip
What to do:
1. Mix pudding according to package directions. For jello instant pudding, that simply required stirring for 2 minutes. Easy peasy.
2. After you’ve mixed the pudding and milk for 2 minutes, stir in the whipped topping.
3. Pour into a popsicle mold (or if you don’t have a popsicle mold, you can use small cups, like those little bathroom cups you get for brushing teeth. Be creative :)
Now for our testers:
I’d say he seems to be enjoying his popsicle!
Yep, him too!
Oh no…it’s almost gone!
Yep, it’s gone.
Nope…there’s still one more lick!
It would seem that the chocolate pudding and cool whip popsicles were a success. Even mommy enjoyed one, and I have to say it was pretty satisfying for only about 60 calories! And, the process was fun as well. The kiddos were able to help me mix and pour, and were excited the whole time because they both love popsicles.
