Woohoo! Its day two of red, white and blue week over here at the Grant life! Yesterday I shared super fun [and super cute!] Fourth of July pancakes. Today I have an equally fun [and cute!] recipe to show yall. Fourth of July Pudding Pops!
What screams summer and Fourth of July more then red, white and blue popsicles? You just cant beat a cool popsicle on a warm day. I can’t lie though – these guys were a pain to make. Not so much that they were difficult but in that they tested my patience.
To make the pudding pops I used instant pudding and almond mix. I mixed one big bowl and then separated it into three containers. I dyed one red and one blue and left one alone to represent white. That was the easy part. My patience started getting tested when I added the red to the popsicle mold. I just assumed that pudding would freeze fairly quickly. And it didn’t. And I ruined one popsicle because I poured the white in too soon. Patience tested.
People say a watched pot never boils. Well, a watched popsicle never freezes. The story has a happy ending though. The red eventually froze and I was able to add the other colors. My kids knew they were in the freezer and kept asking for them that evening. Im happy to report that they loved them! They didn’t even mind that the red and white were mixed together a little bit.
You gotta love a story with a happy ending. Especially one that involves popsicles. I have two more delicious recipes to share with yall this week! And they are for adults only. [Insert big smile here!]

I have never tried to make a homemade Popsicle, but I definitely want to try now! I have a feeling that if I tried this my patience would be tested as well, ha ha!
Can’t wait to see the adults only recipes 😀
haha! Popsicles are definitively patience testers. Worth it though 😉

AMAZING!!! I gotta make these!!!
So good! Make one for Ezra 😉
I totally know what you mean by a “Popsicle that is not watched, won’t freeze.” I also know the phrase, “An unwatched Popsicle will get stolen by your child.” HA!
HAHA! I know that phrase too! Little buggers!
My kids want to make something like this for the 4th! Thanks for the idea!
Oh fun! Let me know how they go! 🙂
Oh yes, I am definitely a fan of homemade popsicles… you can have endless variety and make them healthy too. I love how your pudding pops turned out. I want to try this!
