Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Please note that the Prep time is hands-on time specifically. This is a great make ahead recipe, since the pudding needs to cool and the pops freeze overnight. Also, the yield depends on the size of your pop mold!
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8 pudding pops
  • ⅓ cup sugar or sucanat
  • ⅓ cup non-GMO cornstarch
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 3 cups dairy-free milk beverage (original, vanilla, or chocolate), divided
  • ½ cup dairy-free chocolate chips or carob chips (see post above for chocolate options)
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract, to taste
  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, starch, and salt. Whisk in about a cup of the milk beverage until the starch is dissolved. Whisk in the remaining milk beverage.
  2. Place the pan over medium heat, and bring the mixture to a simmer, while whisking. Continue to whisk and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until it thickens to a thin pudding consistency.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat, and whisk in the chocolate or carb chips and extract until the chips are fully melted.
  4. Let the pudding cool completely, to room temperature.
  5. Spoon the cooled pudding into popsicle molds and freeze overnight.
  6. Run the outside of the molds under hot tap water for just a few seconds to loosen pudding pops for easier removal..
Coconut Option: Use coconut milk beverage and add 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut with the chocolate and extract. Optionally use coconut extract.
