What You Need
- White chocolate instant pudding– You can also use vanilla pudding or cheesecake pudding. You just want to make sure it is a white colored pudding.
- Whole milk– Whole milk gives the best flavor and creaminess but others will work including coconut milk or oat milk.
- Food coloring– Red and blue food coloring
- Popsicle Mold- silicone molds are the best for easy removal.
How to Make Red White and Blue Popsicles
Make the pudding: Combine the milk and the boxes of pudding mix. The separate the pudding into 3 bowls. Color one bowl red, one bowl blue. Add each color to a plastic bag.
Make the popsicles: Pipe the red pudding into the bottom of the mold, then the white layer next and finish with the blue. Place a stick in the mold and freeze for 4 hours. Gently unmold and serve.
Tips and Tricks For The Best Pudding Pops
- Layering Technique: To achieve those beautiful red, white, and blue layers, it’s important to let each layer set before adding the next one. This will help create distinct layers without any bleeding of colors.
- Pudding Consistency: Make sure your pudding has a slightly thicker consistency than usual. This will help the layers hold their shape better and prevent them from mixing together.
- Use Popsicle Molds: Investing in good quality popsicle molds will make the process much easier. Look for molds with a sturdy base and individual slots for each popsicle. Silicone molds are great for easy removal.
- Add Fruit Puree: If you want to enhance the flavor and add a fruity twist, consider incorporating a layer of fruit puree between the pudding layers. For example, blend fresh strawberries for the red layer and blueberries for the blue layer. This adds an extra burst of flavor and complements the pudding perfectly.
- Decorative Touch: For an extra festive touch, consider adding some edible decorations like sprinkles or small fruit pieces on top of the final layer before freezing. This will add a fun and colorful element to your popsicles.
- Proper Freezing Time: Allow the popsicles to freeze completely for several hours or overnight. This will ensure that they are firm and ready to enjoy when it’s time to serve.
How Do I Remove the Popsicles from the Molds Easily?
To remove the popsicles from the molds, run warm water over the outside of the molds for a few seconds. This will help loosen the popsicles and make them easier to slide out. Gently pull on the popsicle stick and wiggle it out of the mold.
