Creamy Lime Pie Pops

Creamy Lime Pie Pops
We made pudding pops the other day that tasted like a creamy lime pie with a graham cracker crust.  We love making homemade popsicles because they’re super easy for the kids to do with me, and they only takes a few minutes to prep before freezing.  These reminded me of a more sophisticated version of Jello Pudding Pops.  Remember those?  I was trying to tell my kids about them while we were making them…but I don’t think they understood just exactly how good they were. I loved those things!  I’m thinking your weekend needs these popsicles.  Enjoy! xo
This recipe makes 10 popsicles.  All you need are popsicle molds (found at most places like Walmart and such) and popsicle sticks!  
Shopping List
1 (3 oz) box of instant vanilla pudding
2 cups of milk (I used 2%)
1 cup of Cool Whip, slightly thawed (just not frozen)
the zest and juice of two limes
10 wooden popsicle sticks
Graham cracker crumbs (I just crushed one sleeve of graham crackers)
Popsicle molds should be at room temperature before assembling.  Spray down inside each mold with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together your pudding and milk for about 2 minutes until it starts to thicken up.  After about 2 minutes, whisk in your Cool Whip followed by your lime zest and juice.  Fill each popsicle mold until there is about an inch left at the top of the mold.  Repeat with all molds.
Next, add your graham crackers to a gallon-sized baggie, seal them up and then lightly crush them using something heavy (I used a pot).  Once you have crumbs inside your baggie, sprinkle them in your molds.
Pop molds into freezer and freeze for one hour.  After one hour, place the wooden sticks inside each mold.  Continue to freeze at least 7 hours before removing.
When you’re ready to serve, run your sink until the water is very hot.  Holding the mold, place the bottom portion under your hot water for about 20 to 30 seconds.  After that, you should be able to grab the sticks and easily remove each popsicle.  If they’re not coming out easily, run the bottom of the mold under hot water a few seconds more.
Remove, serve and enjoy!
If summer had a taste…it would be this!

    I swear I saw a similar creamy ice pop recipe the other day – not sure if it was from you or not, but seeing a variation of this a few times has convinced me to make it!

    Where do you get your popsicle sticks? Do you just use craft popsicle sticks or is there another kind that you use? I wanted to make popsicles and went to the store and the craft isle was the only place I could find sticks….I wasn’t sure if they were ok to use or not, lol!
