Paleo Pudding Pops That’ll Take You Back

Print Friendly

Do you remember Jello Pudding Pops? Boy, I sure do. I could eat a box of those in one sitting. Especially the vanilla ones. YUM. They haven’t been on the market for years (at least around here), and did you know there’s actually a petition to bring them back? I gotta say, I understand why.

I had forgotten about these little gems until last night, when our family was watching the 1997 movie, “Leave It To Beaver,” and they mentioned Pudding Pops. I jumped up off the couch (I’m not kidding–I missed the end of the movie for this!) and went to the kitchen to come up with my own “healthier” non-dairy version. After a bit of experimenting, this was the end result.

I have to say, I love my little Zoku Quick Pop Maker:

It makes popsicles in 7-9 minutes! Of course, you could make these the old fashioned way, and they would be just as delicious.

Recipe: Paleo Pudding Pops That’ll Take You Back (makes 6-7 pops)

paleo pudding pops


1 can full-fat, unsweetened canned coconut milk

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 TBSP honey or pure maple syrup

2 TBSP cocoa powder

1/2 cup Enjoy LIfe Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (Note: you could eliminate these, and the popsicles still taste great, they just aren’t as chocolatey)

Melt the chocolate chips into the coconut milk in a small saucepan over low heat (or if you’re not using the chips, you can just mix all the ingredients together). You don’t need the mixture to get hot, just warm enough to melt the chocolate chips. Stir in the remaining ingredients and cool for about 15 minutes, then pour into Zoku Quick Pop Maker or popsicle molds and freeze until hard. Be careful, you’re gonna want more than one!

    You haven’t just made my day, you’ve made my whole year! I haven’t had a pudding pop since I was a kid (in the 80’s). I can’t wait to try these.

    I just made these and the liquid was amazing. If the pops are even close, I’ll be in heaven! :) My husband is counting calories so I figured them up and they were a lot less then I thought. I have one of those old Tupperware pop molds so they’re pretty small but still a great treat for me and the kids.
