A Strawberry Treat

By Paula Deen Test Kitchen

After a trip to a strawberry farm for picking berries with the kids, there is nothing better than to have them help make a tasty recipe with their strawberry spoils. Using the produce they worked so hard to help pick and making it into a treat for all their friends is just one way to help ignite their drive for learning about where their food comes from and what delicious things they can create with it. Paula’s Strawberry Banana Ice Pops is the perfect recipe for little hands with inquiring minds and big appetites.

Strawberry Banana Ice Pops

1 (3 1/4-ounce) package instant banana cream pudding mix (regular, not sugar-free)
1 3/4 cups milk
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 tablespoon sugar


Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into ice pop

molds and freeze for at least 4 hours.

Cook’s Note: If you don’t have molds, divide the mixture among 8 (5-ounce) small plastic or paper cups. Cover each with plastic wrap and insert a wooden pop stick through the wrap.

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 10 min

Difficulty: Easy

Hi Paula, I truly love you and everything I have seen you make or do, you always make Me laugh. And your a great cook. Just ordered your cooking bible, I have very few cooks books as my mom was a great cook and I was lucky enough to have picked it up as she and my nana always said you couldn't be a good house wife if you couldn't cook or. Put your hands really hot dish water. I was raised to be a housewife, my mom was Italian, I am a proud house wife and my family is very happy about it as we have. A family get together once a month. Thanks a bunch Diana

Why not sugar-free pudding for Strawberry Banana Ice Pops?

By Nanette on July 17, 2011


These look great, I'm curious how they would taste with chocolate pudding instead of banana? Any thoughts?

thestrawberry banana ice pops look devine and scrumptious

Hey Kim! The sugar free pudding just didn’t work well for us. Flavor or consistency. We have tried this with yogurt and it worked well if that would be something more to your liking. Thank you for your question.

Looks great!  Just curious though about not using sugar-free.  Will it make them not set up correctly?  I’m insulin resistant, and would prefer to use the sugar free mix.  Thanks!
