Beat The Heat With A Creamy And Delicious Banana Cream Pie Frozen Pop Treat
Do you love banana cream pie? Now you can enjoy the same great flavors in a cool and creamy Banana Cream Pie Popsicle frozen treat.
One of my favorite desserts growing up was the simple, yet decadent banana cream pie my mom used to make from fresh bananas, instant pudding, Cool Whip and graham cracker crumbs which we ate sitting outside on our porch on warm summer evenings.
I took the same flavors of my favorite retro dessert and put them inside a popsicle using milk, banana pudding, graham cracker crumbs and fresh bananas. I made these in my Zoku Quick Pop Maker, but you can make these frozen treats the old-fashioned way in plastic popsicle molds or paper cups too.
I hope you enjoy my recipe for Banana Cream Pie Popsicles as much as we do!
One of the best parts about the Zoku is that it requires no electricity to use. Just store it it your freezer and when you are ready to make popsicles, pull it out and fill with your ingredients. The popsicles will freeze and be ready to eat in under 10 minutes.
In order for the unit to be completely frozen, you will need to place the popsicle maker in your freezer 24 hours prior to making the popsicles. You can make up to 6 popsicles before the unit needs to be refrozen.
When I am making popsicles with different layers, I place the Zoku Quick Pop Maker back into the freezer while I am waiting for each layer to freeze because they do take an extra few minutes to set.
I used also used the Zoku Quick Pop Tools Kit. I used the measuring cups to combine the mixtures together and I used the fruit wand to place the banana slices on the walls of the the popsicle maker.
Banana Cream Pie Popsicle Recipe
|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
- 4 oz vanilla pudding cup
- 4 oz banana pudding cup
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1 banana
- Scoop out the vanilla pudding into a small bowl or measuring cup and add 1/4 cup of the milk and 1 tbsp of the sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
- Scoop out the banana pudding into a bowl and add the other 1/4 cup of milk and 1 tbsp of sugar. Stir until dissolved.
- In a small custard bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs and 1 tbsp of milk together. If you don't add a little moisture to the crumbs, they will fall out of your popsicle (just like in my pictures, though I have gotten much better at making these).
- Remove the frozen Zoku Quick Pop Maker from your freezer.
- Slice one banana into thin slices, about 1/8" in thickness. If they are too thick, the popsicle sticks will not fit properly.
- Using the Zoku Wand or other kitchen utensil, place a couple of banana slices on the walls of the pop maker. I used the back of the wand to gently press the banana slices to ensure they were firmly attached.
- Place the popsicle sticks into the mold. Pour the vanilla pudding mixture into the molds until they are filled halfway.
- Place about a teaspoon of the moistened graham crumbs on top of the vanilla layer, using a wooden skewer to gently press them down. Allow to set 3 to 4 minutes.
- When the first layer is almost set, fill the molds to the fill line with the banana pudding mixture. Sprinkle a few graham cracker crumbs on top and allow to freeze for another 7 minutes.
- Using the Zoku Super Tool, remove the popsicles from the unit and enjoy! You can store them in the Zoku Storage Case or a Ziploc Freezer bag in your freezer to be enjoyed at a later time, but seriously, because these popsicles only take 10 minutes to make, they NEVER make it into my freezer!
Dip Them In Chocolate!
I Used My Zoku Chocolate Station For Making A Hard And Crunchy Chocolate Shell On The Frozen Banana Pops
One of my kids favorite snacks to eat are bananas dipped in chocolate sauce...so of course, we just had to dip these banana cream popsicles in melted chocolate.
The Zoku Chocolate Station is the perfect companion to the Zoku Quick Pop Maker because everything tastes better dipped in chocolate, especially homemade popsicles.
|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
How To Make Chocolate Dipped Banana Cream Pie Popsicles
- 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 6 frozen banana cream pie popsicles
- Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl.
- Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir. If the chocolate is not completely melted, continue microwaving for 10 seconds at a time.
- You do not want the chocolate to get too hot, or you will have to wait until it cools down. The chocolate needs to be between 80°F and 120°F (27°C-49°C) before you can dip the frozen pops. If the chocolate is too warm, it will slide off the popsicle and not stick.
- Dip the banana cream pie popsicles into the cooled melted chocolate and allow to drip for a few seconds. There is no need to let these set because the chocolate will harden almost instantly, creating a hard crack outer shell on the popsicle.
Serve And Store The Popsicles In A Zoku Storage Case
If you are not eating the entire batch of popsicles at once (who would do that?), the airtight Zoku Storage Case is perfect for storing the extras in your freezer. It holds six popsicles at a time.
The case holds the pops in an upright position, preventing them from being damaged or squished when they are shuffled around your freezer. The case even doubles as a serving tray for the prepared popsicles. Just take off the lid and let everyone pick their favorite looking one.
The Zoku Quick Pops Recipe Book Has Lots Of Simple Popsicle Recipes To Try
I have been so busy creating my own flavor combinations, like this yummy banana cream pie popsicle recipe, that I have only tried a couple of the recipes so far, but I am finding the tips and instructions to be invaluable as we are learning to use our Zoku Pop Maker.
The recipes included in the book use ingredients most of us already have on hand or are easily available and the photos of the pops are gorgeous and drool worthy.

capritaylor from Oklahoma, United States on July 15, 2014:
Could you please tell me if the banana cup and vanilla cup is already- made instant pudding (according to package directions) before you begin the first step? Or are you referring to the the unmade pudding powder?

KellydeBorda on June 16, 2013:
This is such a great idea - I'm for sure going to try it. And it gives me a great idea for doing something similar with key lime pie!
