Peanut Butter Pudding Pops ~ These homemade pudding pops are easy to make and even more fun to eat!
The only hard part of these pops is planning ahead for the freeze time, which takes at least 4-6 hours (exact time will depend on your freezer setting and how full your freezer is). The pudding is base is amazing and from Christina Tosi. I’m now using this base for all kinds of riffed concoctions.

Now that you know where to get the sneaks and peeks for the upcoming pudding pops I mentioned, along with other meals and treats, let’s do this one.
To get started on these homemade pudding pops, here are a few things notes, tips and variations:
Can a plant-based milk be used instead of traditional milk?
Yes, this will work with almond, cashew or any other variety of plant-based milks.
Will honey or maple syrup work for the sweetener in the pudding base?
Yes, most definitely. For that matter liquid cane sugar or agave will work just as well.
Can the peanut butter be substituted.
Yes, cashew, almond and sun butter works well. Nutella is also a good choice and definitely a family favorite around here.

Freeze time in the recipe is a guideline. Exact time will depend on your freezer setting and how full the freezer is.

Evenly divide the mixture into pop molds and freeze for about 4 hours, or until pops are frozen solid. To remove pops, submerge 3/4 of the mold in warm water and jiggle the pops free to release.
