Banana Cream Pie Jell-O Pudding Pops

Jell-O Pudding Pops. If only I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard those three words in the last month. It all started when my boyfriend, Joe, and I took BuzzFeed’s “How Many ’90s Foods Have You Tried?” quiz—because it was clearly more important than actually being productive, okay? After a few high-fives, knee-slaps and those were sooo good-s, we arrived at item #36; Jell-O Pudding Pops.

Much like #25’s Clearly Canadian and #29’s Pop Qwiz Popcorn, I quickly gave Jell-O Pudding Pops a “don’t remember” and was on to the next. Joe looked at my apparent third eye with frightened disbelief and ordered the quiz to a halt. After repeated interrogation, he finally came to terms with the fact that I truly had never tried Jell-O Pudding Pops. But, from then on, every “what do you want for dessert?” or “do you want anything from the grocery store?” was met with “Jell-O Pudding Pops.” Seriously.

Last weekend, I was finally ready to put the madness to rest and bring this popular frozen treat back to life—and this time around, banana cream pie-style! The popsicles were insanely easy to make, delicious and so refreshing on a hot Sacramento day. I can kind of understand why people got so crazy (Google it!) when pudding pops were pulled from store shelves. However, when you make your own, the flavor combinations are endless. I can’t wait to experiment with chia seeds and other fresh fruits. Yum!
