Banana Pudding Pops

4 Reviews
From: EatingWell Magazine July/August 2009

These banana popsicles taste rich and decadent but are low-fat and really easy to make. We especially like them with some chocolate chips added. Cool the mixture to room temperature and divide 2/3 cup mini chips among the molds before freezing.

  • 1/3-1/2 cup light brown sugar

  1. Whisk sugar to taste, cornstarch and salt in a large saucepan. Add milk and whisk until combined. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking occasionally. Boil, whisking constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla.
  2. Put about half the pudding in a food processor or blender and add bananas. Process until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Stir the mixture back into the remaining pudding.
  3. Divide the mixture among freezer-pop molds. Insert the sticks and freeze until completely firm, about 6 hours. Dip the molds briefly in hot water before unmolding.

Just made these...couldn't wait until it completely froze. Very good as is. Just did half the recipe...still made 6 pops.

Very yummy, but never froze properly. I had to spoon them out. Might be due to my tiny freezer though.

I didn't expect these to turn out so well, but they were great! I added in a tiny bit of hot cocoa mix to some of them for the kids who didn't like plain bananas. This was a great, healthy treat :)
