As the weather gets warmer, I find myself baking less but still wanting dessert just as often. Banana pudding is probably one of my favorite southern, summer desserts… in addition to strawberry shortcake, cream pies….(Wait. Idea: Strawberry shortcake pops?!) Anyway! Sometimes it’s too warm to bake, sometimes I don’t want bready stuff, and sometimes I just have a lot of bananas to use. So since banana pudding is so yum I decided to try making popsicles. They came out quite good too. Now let me write down this recipe so I can move onto those strawberry shortcake pops!
You will need:
- 2 cups whole milk (set aside 1/2 cup)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- a dash of salt
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 egg
- popsicle molds and wooden sticks
Gather all your ingredients and watch my video of the process!
