Do you remember Pudding Pops? They were one of my favorite treats as a kid. Well, alongside my grandpa’s banana pudding. My grandparents would always make it when they knew my cousins and I were coming over – and it is one of those nostalgic treats that I’ll never forget.
When My mom made it a few weeks ago for a Memorial Day cookout, I fell into nostalgia, and thought about how they would probably taste awesome frozen — I have a thing for frozen treats.
So, I asked her for the recipe — and I was right. They’re even better as popsicles. In fact, I had to vacate these from my house as fast as possible so that I didn’t eat them all in one day. Remember pudding pops? They’re perfect – except they’re banana with Nilla Wafers and have actual bananas in them. Yum.
Here’s what you’ll need to make them – and trust me, you’ll want to make them.

1/2 container of cool whip
1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 small box of banana pudding
1-2 sliced bananas
Other Supplies: Popsicle Mold, Banana Slicer 1 or Banana Slicer 2, Popsicle Sticks
Combine the cool whip, condensed milk and banana pudding together. Add a few handfuls of vanilla wafers and stir. Then, pour the mixture into a gallon sized bag.
To prepare your popsicle molds, pour a mixture of sliced bananas and crushed vanilla wafers in each mold. I did all of mine differently to see how I best liked them. I preferred almost filling each mold with bananas. Then, cut a small hole in your gallon ziplock bag and begin filling each mold. You’ll want to top the mold to be sure the mixture all falls to the bottom.
Freeze for one hour, and then place a popsicle stick in each mold, and freeze again overnight.
