Homemade Pudding Pops and Giant Ice Cubes

Introduction: Homemade Pudding Pops and Giant Ice Cubes

Who doesn't love Jell-O Pudding Pops? We all love 'em, but don't we all wish they were more affordable? Here is a cost effective way of making your very own Pudding Pops.

Step 1: Use Your Favorite Pudding Cup.

First, purchase your favorite brand multi-pack of pudding cups in the snack section of your market. Sam's Club, Costco, and BJ's Warehouse sell these in bulk for a much lower price.

Step 2: Use Your Stick of Choice.

Grab a fork, spoon, or popsicle stick (if you have one) and stick it right through the foil top in a vertical position.
Stick Pudding Cup(s) in the freezer overnight.

Step 3: Once Frozen, Remove From Cup.

Once the Pudding Cups are frozen solid, remove from freezer, peel away foil wrapper top and gently squeeze the cup part until pudding pop is freed from cup. This only takes a few seconds.

You now have yourself your very own ghetto-fied Frozen Pudding Pop(s)!  Share with your friends.

Step 4: Re-use Empty Pudding Cup. (Instructable Bonus)

As a bonus, be green and re-use your empty pudding cups for making jumbo ice cubes!

Step 5: Freeze Overnight.

Clean empty pudding cups thoroughly, fill with water, then freeze.

Step 6: Enjoy Giant Ice Cubes!

Once frozen, they easily pop out of the cups.
You can then place them in a ziplock baggy for later use or just keep them in the cup.
They are very convenient because you need just one cube per drink and they melt at a much slower rate.

I hope you find this Instructable helpful and useful. It is my first so please go easy on me. ;)

    "just one cube per drink and they at a much slower rate." I think should be "melt".

    it would be even cheaper to make your own pudding and use dixie cups but still a very thought provoking "ible" . My drink cup holds somewhere around 32oz and I like to use BIG ice cubes so I freeze water in 12oz plastic cups, just run them under hot water to get them out and refill, so I get 2 cans of soda and an icecube, often the icecube is still large enough for a second serving of 2 cans (or ice tea or .....
