Summertime is banana split time.
I remember when I was young, my mom would take us to go get ice cream and we’d all share a banana split.
When my mom and nephew were in town visiting last week, we went to get ice cream, and what did my mom get? A banana split! Just like good old times. It was fun, but unfortunately I didn’t split it with her because I was too consumed with my snickers and reese’s blizzard.. mmm.
The traditional flavors in a banana split consist of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream with pineapple, strawberry and chocolate sauces. And of course 1 banana, split down the center, topped with a maraschino cherry.
We created a fun twist to the traditional banana split – and it’s in our favorite form – POPSICLES!
These Banana Split Pudding Pops are going to be your favorite summertime popsicle – I mean just look at those layers of deliciousness!
There is a rich Dulce de leche layer which tastes like a mix of butterscotch and caramel. Then a classic chocolate pudding layer, topped off with banana pudding layer with maraschino cherries mixed in.
I have a time saving tip for you. This recipe calls for Dulce de leche pudding. You could go looking for Dulce de leche pudding in the packaged pudding aisle, but you won’t find it there, even if you scour the aisle for 20 minutes like I did.
I actually found the Dulce de leche pudding by accident. I was grabbing some yogurt, and what do I see? The refrigerated pudding section! I never buy refrigerated pre-made pudding, but if you’re looking for the Dulce de leche pudding that’s where it will be. And it’s delicious.

If you are looking to buy a popsicle mold that uses wooden popsicle sticks, the one I use and suggest is the Norpro Ice Pop Maker.
