Is it hot where you live? Because we had an unusually warm spring here. In fact, it's been so unusually warm here, it just meshed right into Summer and we didn't notice the difference.
But I'm NOT complaining. Nuh-uh. This born and raised Texan is LOVING the unsual warm temps. It blesses my little heart and it makes me think of home. And besides, it's still not NEARLY as hot as Texas temps. So nope. No complaints.
But I'm going to bet that you all are not all from Texas yourself (I know, I'm a crazy gambler) and you are all probably feeling the heat somewhat.
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how I lazified homemade popsicles. And low and behold if a lazy mom out there didn't send me a lazy PUDDING pop recipe to make! I am super excited about it for a couple of reasons...
- I tend to have random packages of pudding on hand. Especially now that I know how to make these things. *sigh*
- Who doesn't LOVE a chocolatey, delicious pudding pop?!
- Now I don't have to buy them from Walmart.
- It's easy enough a lazy mom can do it!
[insert cheesey laugh here]
Okay, I promise not to make any more stupid jokes.
Lazy Pudding Pops
(sent in by Julie)
Instant pudding mix
2 cups of milk
popsicle molds (or dixie cups like she says)
Beat pudding mix and milk with hand mixer 2 minutes. Spoon into dixie cups and plop a popsicle stick in the middle and pop in the freezer. Once frozen, peel cup off and enjoy. Easy-peasy!!
And boy howdy, isn't that a lazy recipe?!
Just THINK of the possibilities! I mean, just look at all the flavors you could make?! And if you aren't feeling TOO lazy, then maybe you could make half and half's like the one pictured above!
So there you have it. Go plunder through your pantry and find that random pudding mix and make some of these, mkay? Your kids will thank me, er, I mean you for it! Because that's who they should thank, YOU, not me. Mmm, hmm.
