Which flavor of pudding and ice cream would you use for this recipe?

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on March 26th, 2014

Some recipes are so simple (and so darn delicious) that you can’t help but make them the first chance you get. This is one of those recipes. (See recipe card below.) It’s essentially ice cream blended with pudding and served on a delicious bed of crushed up butter crackers (mixed with butter).

We featured this recipe on the Turkey Hill Facebook page last month, and it was a big hit. The nice thing about the recipe is that you can use vanilla pudding mixed with vanilla ice cream, or chocolate pudding mixed with chocolate ice cream, or pistachio pudding mixed with our new Pistachio Almond Ice Cream, or butterscotch pudding mixed with All Natural Salted Caramel Ice Cream, or…well, you get the point.

Which pudding and ice cream combo would you use to whip up this tasty creation?

    Butter crackers? Yuck. Go with the plain ice cream folks.

  13. Joan says:

    Turkey Hill Butter Pecan ice cream and butterscotch pudding, if I have to use instant pudding at all. I might just use my ice cream: butter pecan, and some caramel ice cream topping. Yes, I think I will. Thanks for the idea.

  14. Dennis says:

    Peanut Butter Ripple

  15. Cindy Jo says:

    I would use French Vanilla pudding and Turkey Hill French Vanilla ice cream . I would top it with chocolate sauce and peanut pieces . I would also use chocolate graham crackers in place of butter crackers.

  16. Janice Dean says:

    I would use white chocolate pudding and Blitzburgh Crunch!

  17. Cleo Browne says:

    I would use banana ice cream with banana pudding.

    All natural vanilla with pistachio pudding and pineapple topping no crust or cookies for me, But you can if you want to.

  19. RonF says:

    I agree with the Deep Dark Chocolate Ice Cream and the chocolate

  21. Betty says:

    dark dark chocolate

    chocolate pudding and coconut cream ice cream

  26. erica says:

    I cannot imagine ever using instant pudding for ANYTHING. It has nothing real in it, it’s only chemicals and preservatives. And margarine will KILL you! As, of course, will any preservative-filled industrialized cookies bought in a supermarket. If I were to use crackers, the only ones I’d use would be graham crackers (and they’re not great either), but I would make my own vanilla or chocolate pudding and make it with real milk and real butter and real (that is, all-natural) ice cream.

  27. Jim says:

    Chocolate pudding and coffee ice cream

  30. Elaine Garfield says:

    I vote for coconut cream

  31. Jim in SOMD says:

    Well since it was designed for Vanilla, that wiould work great, but I think I might try it with Chocolate.

  32. Sally says:

    Chocolate pudding and vanilla bean ice cream

  33. Lila says:

    Chocolate pudding and raspberry ice cream or strawberry. Ether would be great.

  34. Marta says:

    I’m a TH (it’s got to be Turkey Hill) mint chocolate chip lover so I’ll give that a try.

  35. Kim Durham says:

    Chocolate ice cream and pistachio pudding..yum!

  36. Donna Straugh says:

  37. Pamela says:

    Coffee Ice Cream and Milk Chocolate Pudding-Mocha Pie!

  38. Sue Schell says:

    Chocolate Pudding and Mint chocolate chip ice cream! 🙂

  39. LindaR says:

    I would love to try it with pumpkin ice cream & pumpkin pudding.
    Although they are both seasonal flavors & I might have to wait for the fall, but I think it would make a great harvest dessert with a dollop of whipped cream!

  40. Elsie Nicolette says:

    Fudge ripple ice cream and chocolate pudding

  41. LouAnn says:

    Chocolate & Coffee sounds good to me also

  42. Anita says:

    Immediately, upon reading the opening prior to seeing the flavors TH used, my mind jumped to butterscotch pudding…always a favorite and paired with the salty caramel would certainly be a winner in this house.

  43. Audrey says:

    How about banana pudding and either banana split ice cream or natural vanilla bean ice cream. With vanilla you could add a mashed banana. Sounds good to me.

  44. Noel says:

    I agree with Erika who doesn’t like artificial pudding and margarine. I would use homemade vanilla pudding and dark dark chocolate ice cream

  45. Sarah says:

    Butterscotch pudding and vanilla ice cream or maybe chocolate pretzel.

  46. Ellen says:

    Chocolate pudding & ice cream.

  47. Cathy S. says:

    Have made this recipe many times using various flavors of ice cream Chocolate, strawberry, a favorite is a coconut cream.

  48. Ann Marie Stelma Graff says:

    Chocolate definitely.

  49. Nancy says:

    Chocolate pudding with Coffee or Mint ice cream would be my choice. 🙂

  50. Karen J. Chin-Mancini says:

    Double Chocolate Ice Cream, Chocolate pudding and Chocolate chipe (dark)

  51. Caroline of Manalapan says:

    we prefer to keep them separate. When pudding is made in our house, hubby cooks it so he can scrape out the pot as he did when he was a kid. He says the pot is the best part.

  52. Marta Morgan says:

    Ditto on the chocolate!

  53. Vicki Spokes says:

    I would try the original then chocolate

  54. TawndaM says:

    Chocolate pudding, …& probably chocolate icecream, too

  55. Angie says:

    Strawberry’s and cream ice cream and vanilla pudding.

  56. Sheryl says:

    I would use banana pudding and peanut butter swirl ice cream.

  57. Thelma M Jones says:

    Vanilla pudding & T H Black raspberry ice cream

  58. I would do either chocolate pudding with coffee ice cream or chocolate pudding with peanut butter ice cream BUT I would make my own pudding (grandmother’s recipe)

  59. Andrea says:

    I agree with Anita; butterscotch pudding paired with TH Salted Carmel sounds like a match made in Heaven!

  60. Phyllis says:

    Vanilla Bean & Pistaccio pudding . YUM!

  61. Harriet G. says:

    I would use vanilla pudding and low fat vanilla ice cream.

  62. Rose Marie Wilson says:

    I also agree with Erika about the instant pudding and the crackers. I would make my own pudding from scratch, and use Walker’s shortbread cookies (which still have no additives, etc.). I like Lila’s idea of chocolate pudding and raspberry ice cream, with the shortbread cookies and no extra butter (or margarine). Come on! This combo is fattening enough without adding butter or margarine! My other flavor combos would be chocolate pudding with mint chocolate chip ice cream; lemon pudding with Southern Lemon Pie ice cream, chocolate fudge pudding with Yankee Brownie Blast ice cream, and butterscotch pudding with vanilla ice cream (all with shortbread cookies and without butter).

  63. REGGIE MCGEE says:

    chocolate pudding and peanut butter ice cream

  64. Robin Ames says:

    I know what I WOULDN’T use… the flavors in the recipe listed above. Yech… too much butter flavor/yellow/white/vanilla stuff. Not appealing in the least!

  65. Lydia says:

    vanilla of course

  66. Cheryl Butchko says:

    I use vanilla ice cream with coconut cream pudding.

  67. Wm Snyder says:

    Chocolate Pudding and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

  68. Wanda Gawronski says:

    Rocky road an banana pudding

  69. Bob Kessler Jr says:

    Almost any combination of pudding and ice cream would be good for this recipe. The combination helps to keep the ice cream from melting fast.

  70. Cathy says:

    I would use French vanilla pudding with Pumpkin Pie Turkey Hill Ice cream, what an awesome Fall treat this would be!

  71. cat says:

    I would use Oreo pudding w/ Chocolate Chip ice cream ;p

  72. jan says:

    chocolate for both the darker the better

  73. terry baughan says:

    dark dark chocoloate no doubt

  74. Donna Keller says:

    Butter pecan with a carmel sounds really good.

  75. Marion says:

    Coffee ice cream and vanilla pudding. Except it is all too fattening for me!

  76. Juliette says:

    I would like chocolate pudding and vanilla ice cream! Perfect match!

  77. Juliette says:

    I would add graham crackers to the recipe! Sorry I left it out, regular chocolate pudding with vanilla TH ice cream and the graham cracker! Now that’s the perfect match!

  78. Theresa Rouse says:

    Chocolate and peanut butter all the way!

  79. Judy says:

    My first choice would be butterscotch pudding mixed with All Natural Salted Caramel ice cream!

  80. leecarr says:

    phillies graham cracker ice cream and chocolate pudding

  81. CHRISTINE says:


  82. Ann King says:

    This sounds like a good thing but I would use chocolate pudding and the deep dark chocolate and crushed Oreo cookies..

  83. Lyn Wallace says:

    I like the chocolate pudding and raspberry ice cream that was suggested Sounds Yummy!

  84. Frances Nyitrai says:

    Coconut Cream ice cream & coconut pudding…Yumm

  89. Pam says:

    I think that vanilla pudding with mint chocolate chip ice cream would be terrific – especially if extra chocolate chips were sprinkled on top.

  90. Carol McDermit says:

    I would use Salted Caramel Ice-Cream and Butterscotch pudding.

  91. Marie says:

    I would use dark chocolate ice cream and dark cooked chocolate pudding. Would also use chocolate graham crackers and whipped cream. Sounds delicious. Does it sound as if I LOVE chocolate???

  92. Ron says:

    I wouldn’t change a thing. Vanilla all the way!

  93. Judy F. says:

    TGIF!!! Might have a double scoop of ice cream to celebrate.

  94. Lynn Hordines says:

    Premium vanilla and whoopie pie

  95. Brenda says:

    Nothing but chocolate

  96. Cath T says:

    Chocolate is always a winner for me, but pistachio sounds good, too. Then again, salted caramel ice cream would be great. Well, I can see that I need to do some investigative work here, definitely. Glad to see the snow has melted on the banner, and the fields are greening up. Cows must be happy too. By the way, shouldn’t a dairy be using butter in its recipes rather than margarine??

  97. Bobi says:

    Who needs pudding?

  98. Marge Healy says:

    Definitely dark chocolate. However, I would not make this pie but an ice cream pis using rice kreispies for the crust -yummy.
    A friend gave me the recipe about 40 years ago !

  99. Kim Kilonsky says:

    Pistachio Almond Ice Cream and pistachio pudding

  101. Cathy Saynuk says:

    I would use strawberry ice cream and vanilla pudding, and mix in some sliced fresh or frozen strawberries.

  102. JOHANNA H. says:

    I suggest trying mint chocolate chip ice cream and either vanilla or chocolate pudding (depending on how much chocolate you prefer).

  103. Heather says:

    Black Raspberry ice cream & Chocolate pudding

  104. Victoria Wagner says:

    Coconut pudding with milk chocolate ice cream.

  105. Sandy says:

    Best believe it’s butterscotch!

  106. brenda says:

    You can use naykind of pudding and ice cream. Pudding and ice cream go well together. I sometime mix pudding and ice cream in my reicpe. I will some time use Lemon Pudding and vanllia ice cream or Chocoalate Pudding and Turkey Hill ice cream strawberry ice cream.

  107. Michael says:

    Rum raisin ice cream! The flavor would be amazing.

  108. LA LUZ says:

    chocolate all the way!!

  109. Mary Gilmore says:

    Butterscotch would be my choice.
    I’d also like lemon pudding with the Lemon Pie Ice Cream special. It isn’t available nearly often enough!

  110. Harold Barlett` says:

    Turkey Hill Butter Pecan Ice Cream and a “cook and serve” butterscotch pudding, but line the bowl with crushed shortbread cookies. YUM!

  111. Cookies and Cream pudding and Chocolate ice cream. Skip the homemade crust and use a store bought graham cracker pie shell.

  112. Christy says:

    deep dark chocolate or the extreme cookies and cream –it would give a balance and depth of flavor to the vanilla
    sounds like a good dessert… Yumm

  113. patricia venezia says:


  114. Joan Hudson-Simone says:

    You guys (and girls) are always working to make a great product even better, and you always ask for the public’s opinion and what they would like..Thank you..I personally love coffee ice cream, but also vanilla – a little chocolate..oh I just love ice cream.

  115. Mark says:

    banana pudding with deep dark chocolate ice cream

  116. KO says:

    I would forget the crackers and butter and rather Lorna Doones
    and tapioca (large pearls ) pudding and vanilla beans with the vanilla icecream

  117. Gail L. Johnson says:

    Butterscotch and Salted Carmel Ice Cream YUMMMMM! There could be hundreds of combination and they would all be good because Turkey Hill is QUALITY!!!! YEP

  118. Maria Mead says:


  119. JUDITH G KING says:


  120. Gordon Smith says:


  121. Peg Stevens says:

    Deep dark chocolate would be my choice, although anything would work!

  122. Patricia says:

    Pistachio Pudding

  123. Marci says:

    chocolate pudding and Touchdown Sundae icecream…yummy!

  124. Nick M. says:

    Any cooked chocolate pudding mixed with TH Fat Free Yogurt, with Cherry pie filling swirled in over a bed of coarsely chopped chocolate cookies, Hershey’s chocolate syrup drizzled on top. Been there twice in two days- try it and be destroyed. n.

  125. Toby Slunaker says:

    This is one of our favorite recipes. We add Cool Whip to the top and sprinkle some remaining Ritz crackers over the top. So yummy!

    I have tried peppermint ice cream with chocolate pudding and used Oreo Cookies instead of Ritz Crackers.

    I have tried Pumpkin Ice cream and vanilla pudding (my fave!)

    So many possibilities, so little time 🙂

  126. Patricia says:

    Pistachio pudding with French Vanilla ice cream.

  127. Kimberly Fabri says:

    I would use the french vanilla ice cream with this recipe. It would give it a richer flavor. Going all dark chocolate would be great too!

    I would use chocolate cookie crust with vanilla bean ice cream and 2 coconut puddings.

  129. sue says:

    definitely vanilla and chocolate–can’t beat that combination!!
