Banana Pudding Pops

July/August 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (48 votes)

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.
