Looking for a sweet treat you can make and enjoy with the kids this summer? Sweet Cherry & Chocolate Pudding Pops are a must have! Simplify by using a store-bought instant pudding mix. Traditionally you cannot use milk substitutes in instant puddings, but since we are freezing these popsicles, it is totally okay to use a milk alternative. I personally have made these with oat milk before and they turned out great! With only a few ingredients and super simple instructions, this is an all-ages friendly project that will not only entertain the mind, but also the tastebuds! 


  • 1 box of store-bought instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 3 cups of milk of choice 
  • 2 cups of cherries, de-stemmed, pitted, and halved


  1. Add the pudding mix and milk of choice to a medium sized mixing bowl. Following the directions on the package, add in your milk of choice.  Mix vigorously with a whisk or handheld mixer for two minutes.  After 5 minutes, your pudding will be set (if you used dairy, if not, it will still be runny).

  2. De-stem, pit and halve the sweet cherries. Layer cherries, and pudding in reusable popsicle forms, alternating a few times so you get cherry and chocolate with every bite!

  3. Leftover pudding can be enjoyed immediately or stored in the fridge in an air-tight container.  Freeze overnight and enjoy!
