I have been on a mission this summer to try out new popsicle recipes. I have found some really fun ones, and these Banana Cream Pie Pops are no exception. They were a big hit both with kids and adults.
If you like banana cream pie, then you will love these pudding pops. They are very easy to make. To prepare them you will need:
- 8 graham crackers
- 4 tbsp. butter or margarine
- Instant banana pudding
- Instant vanilla pudding
- Disposable paper cups or popsicle molds
- Popsicle sticks
You can prepare these pudding pops in Dixie cups or popsicle molds. The Prepared Pantry sells a great popsicle mold that you can use over and over again.
First crush the graham crackers by placing them in a ziploc bag and rolling over them with a rolling pin. You can also use Nilla Wafers instead of graham crackers, if you prefer. Melt the butter or margarine and stir it into the cracker crumbs.
Prepare each box of instant pudding separately, following the directions on the package. You can use all banana pudding instead of using both banana and vanilla pudding, but my taste testers agreed that just having the banana might result in too much banana flavor. They liked the combination of the two flavors. You can purchase the small or the large packages of pudding, depending on how many popsicles you want to make.
Place a couple spoonfuls of vanilla pudding in the bottom of each popsicle mold. Next add a thin layer of graham cracker crumbs. Add a couple of spoonfuls of banana pudding, another layer of graham cracker crumbs, and lastly another layer of vanilla pudding. Place a popsicle stick in each mold.
Freeze several hours or overnight. To serve, peel away the Dixie cup or run the popsicle mold under warm water until the popsicle easily slides out of the mold.
Prepare yourself for the delicious taste of banana cream pie!
