Summer Fun Challenge - August - Make a Cool Treat

I do not know about anyone else, but August just came flying at me this first week. Family visiting, birthdays, end of summer parties, babies to visit...too much fun for one week! Summer break is coming to an end and I am sure everyone is busy surviving the heat and getting ready for school.

This month's challenge: Make a cool treat!
Make a cool treat of your choice and show off the fun you had making it with your family with the link-up at the bottom of this post (or email me pics if your blog is private). Do not forget to go over to the August Giveaway for your chance to win a $40 gift card. 

We have been having lots of fun making our own popsicles this summer. Here are a couple of our favorite recipes.

Root Beer Float Pudding Pops

What You Need:
  • 1 box Vanilla pudding - 4 serving or 6- it just depends on how strong of a vanilla flavor you want it.
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream - Bryers now carries Lactose free, if you need it, and it is really good
  • 1 cup milk - lactose milk also works
  • 1 cup water (may want a little more if you use the 6 serving box)
  • 2 -3 tsp root beer extract - depending on how strong of a root beer flavor you want
  • Popsicle mold or cups - size is your choice!
*makes about 8 popsicles


Step 1: Combine all ingredients together.

Step 2: Mix everything together. In a blender is quick, but messy to get out once mixed and in a bowl uses extra energy!

Step 3: Put in cups or popsicle mold Freeze for 1.5 hours and then place sticks in, if you do not of the sticks that come with the mold. Will be solid after 4 hours and even better overnight.

Step 4: To remove from cup/mold, run cup under warm water for at least 15 seconds to help remove the popsicle. It usually took me longer than 15 seconds. A good squeeze or 2 to the sides helps and I knew I was close once I could see a few tiny air bubbles. Do not do it too long or it will melt the popsicle! =)

Step 5: Eat and Enjoy or remove and package them separately in plastic baggies with a tie to enjoy later. I am going to make a ton and stock up. We cannot keep these around long enough!

Here is another fun recipe:

Fruit Pudding Pops

What You Need:
  • 1 package pudding
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream
  • Chopped up fruit


Step 1:  Mix milk and pudding together. Add chopped fruit. The strawberries were so yummy....possibly better than the root beer pudding pops! We had some pudding/ice cream/milk mix set aside from making the Root Beer Pops. That is why we have the small containers.

Step 2: Put pudding mix in popsicle molds and place in freezer. After 1.5 hours insert popsicle sticks (if needed) and wait for 4 hours to eat. Yum, yum, yum!
