Banana Pudding Pops

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.

Yield: about 10 (3-ounce) freezer pops
Active Time: 20
Total Time: 380

Ingredients

  • 1/3-1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups low-fat milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups diced bananas, (about 2 large)

Preparation

  1. Whisk sugar to taste, cornstarch and salt in a large saucepan. Add milk and whisk until combined. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking occasionally. Boil, whisking constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla.
  2. Put about half the pudding in a food processor or blender and add bananas. Process until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Stir the mixture back into the remaining pudding.
  3. Divide the mixture among freezer-pop molds. Insert the sticks and freeze until completely firm, about 6 hours. Dip the molds briefly in hot water before unmolding.
