Tips

Want to make sure that your popsicles turn out well? Here are my best tips for these homemade popsicles. 

  • When adding the pudding to the popsicle molds, make sure to use a spoon to push the pudding down around the banana slices. This will help ensure that your popsicles have an even layer of banana and pudding. 
  • If you want to make sure that your popsicles are extra creamy, add an additional 1/2 cup of milk to the pudding mixture. 
  • If you want to make sure that your popsicles are extra banana-y, add an additional 1/2 cup of mashed bananas to the pudding mixture. 
  • For an adult version of this recipe, add 1/4 cup of rum to the pudding mixture before adding it to the molds.
  • Make your own wafer crumbs by crushing them up in a food processor. 
  • I used a homemade classic banana pudding but you can use also use your favorite instant pudding mix.
  • For a lighter banana pudding mix, you can fold in some whipped cream or greek yogurt.
