What a dish to serve on the an up coming anniversary of The King of Pop, Elvis Presley's passing on Aug. 16th. This recipe by John W.
, is SO fitting and inspiring & totally delish in my kids' book. Why I forgot to make a blog about it over a year ago is beyond me, but I guess now is a better time then ever.
So just a little insert about Elvis, that I know. He loved loved banana & peanut butter sandwiches. And so do I. Matter of fact I grew up on them. Mine were never grilled or toasted as I see
many doing now a days. It was 2 slices of fresh white bread with a slather of peanut butter on both pieces of bread and sliced up bananas smacked dab in the middle...yummy, yum-O...hmm mm good. However, Elvis liked them, is fine by me. And it's great to see
that my kids enjoy my favorite sweet sandwich to this day.
Elvis was a great many things. A talented singer, an actor, quite a good looking man, love the movie Blue Hawaii. He was a father, a son, a husband, a friend
and great many things and one of America's top icons. While his untimely death came about, it broke a lots of hearts and brought about a lot of sadness for his family, friends and valued fans. He lives on in the heart of everyone that he touched. That's why
I love this themed frosty and delicious frozen treat. It was SO easy to make and I'll show you.
Here's where the link to the recipe:
2 cups cold milk
1 (3.5 ounce) package instant banana pudding mix
1 1/2 teaspoons warm peanut butter
Pour the cold milk into a large bowl; whisk the pudding mix into the cold milk until dissolved, about 2 minutes.
Allow to rest until nearly set, 4 to 5 minutes.
Next is the peanut butter
Mash the peanut butter into the pudding; stir to distribute the peanut butter evenly throughout the mixture.
Spoon the mixture into popsicle molds, tapping the mold on a hard surface to allow any air bubbles to escape.
Insert wooden popsicle sticks into the center of each popsicle mold. **please note, wooden popsicle sticks are best in this recipe, due to the mixture being thick. I know~~the plastic ones
Store in freezer until completely frozen solid, 5 hours to overnight.
Running warm water over the outside of the mold will make it easier to remove the pops.
And Wah-LA!! you have a delicious treat fix for a King. The recipe makes 6 thick pops and it's a favorite. Do try them! This 3 little ingredient recipe, is a quick fix and can be thrown together
in no time. Simple, fast and amazingly good. If you need to add a little more peanut butter, go for it. It's a total keeper in my books.
