Ingredients You’ll Need

- Vanilla Wafers – These add the base to the popsicles that will keep the frozen pudding from dripping all over your hands.
- Banana – Ripe bananas are the best because they add tons of flavor in every bite.
How To Make This Recipe
In a large bowl, mix together the banana cream pudding mix and milk. Whisk for 2 minutes, then let it sit for about 5 minutes until it thickens.
Place the vanilla wafers into a resealable zip top bag and crush the wafers.
Slice the banana into thin slices. Drop banana sliced into the popsicle mold, then fill with the banana pudding. Shake the mold to loosen bubbles and make sure the banana pudding fills the entire mold.
Insert popsicle sticks, then add vanilla crumbs around the bottom. Press the crumbs into the pudding so they stay when frozen. Freeze overnight. Serve cold!
Recipe Tips & Variations
- You can use fresh or frozen bananas with this recipe.
- Try this recipe with vanilla or chocolate pudding. Chocolate banana pudding popsicles are delicious too.
- These popsicles need to freeze for at least 8 hours, but overnight is better. You will want them to be completely frozen before removing them from the mold.
- Run warm water over the molds for 10-15 seconds to easily remove popsicles from the molds.
- Use half and half in place of milk for a creamier popsicle.
- Make these in batches ahead of time for your next party or outdoor BBQ.
- Serve popsicles over ice to prevent melting.
The popsicles should be stored in the freezer. They can be taken out of the mold once frozen and stored in a freezer safe zip top bag. They’ll keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Yes! You will want to make sure that it’s covered tightly in a freezer bag or airtight container to keep the popsicles from becoming discolored.
It takes about 15 minutes to assemble the popsicles and about another 8 hours for them to be fully frozen to eat.
Any chain store will sell popsicle molds. If you can’t find them in a store, Amazon also sells them.
There are a couple options for this. You can use a muffin tin or plastic or paper cups. Layer the popsicles the same way and use a popsicle stick in the center. Cover the tin or cups with aluminum foil so you can insert the popsicle sticks through it.
