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 slipped out.
 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.

Hi mis7up :) Great blog. I remember watching Elvis movies with my Grandma when I was a kid. She loved Elvis! I've made these pudding pops before. My kids love them.

Those pops look delicious! And on a side note, I have a story about your fried cheese sticks recipe. Not long ago, I was jonesing for spaghetti and meat sauce. No big deal, except Steve hates GF pasta, and I don't like Spaghetti squash with meat sauce. Result - no spaghetti for us. :( Then I'm thinking of other ways to get the fix. Meatballs, maybe, or hey, wow! Dip fried cheese into it!. of course, there ARE no GF fried cheese sticks. None. So I go searching and find your newly-approved recipe. Looks good, so I saved it. The very next day, in the Daily Dish, there's your recipe again. Ok, I can take a hint. Ran out and bought string cheese (which I've never even tasted before, what's with that?) and finally, this morning, got around to making them. They're frozen now, waiting for me to fry them later today. Anyway, your method is perfect. I had no bread crumbs, so used a corn breading that ends up like a cross between breadcrumbs and panko. Very southern. I added Italian seasoning (homemade, of course) and went to town. So easy, and makes a nice exterior that adheres well. I'll let you know how they work for us. Oh, and I have no meat sauce, so will just use Exquisite Pizza Sauce (AR recipe, ALWAYS in my fridge) and dip away! Didn't mean to take over your blog, but I'm so glad you posted so I could say THANK YOU! - Duffy

oh Duffy...your quite welcome. My mother in law can't have gluten or dairy...and it totally sucks for her. Every now in again, she'll eat a little hoping it doesn't give her grief. But as well in her case, can't have corn either...I mean what's up with that. She gets soo sad at times when she sees some of my posts...but I have found things she can enjoy when I'm cooking for them that makes up for it. Let me know how it all turns out for you and then if it does....I'll be so thrilled for you. ;-)

Yoohoo! Mis 7 lady? I fried those cheese sticks tonight. YUM!! Seriously good. Next time if I don't have any bread crumbs on hand, I'll whip up a batch, because my corn coating didn't do them justice, flavor-wise. But your method was spot-on perfection. The coating STUCK, was super crispy, they went from freezer to table in about 5 minutes and we loved em! BTW - Exquisite Pizza Sauce makes a darn good dip for them. Now I'm off to write a 5-star review. :)

About Me
I'm an active mom of 4 and married the love of my life. I'm a full~time certified care giver, part~time food blogger @ http://the7upexperience.com , avid & obsessed novice photographer. I love allrecipes and pretty much an addict. I'm also a new member to Banana Belt Photography Club that's local to my community, and an Allrecipes Allstar Brand Ambassador. And have stamped allrecipes on me for life. The site has opened up my eyes to so much more then just recipes. I'm proud to be a member of this site and my love, passion & learning other recipes from other valued members has really broaden my horizens.
My favorite things to cook
Asian, Mexican, Multi-cultured foods, Low-fat, Low-sugar, Stews, casseroles, slow cooker meals and baking......Everything!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Funny but true: Cooking traditions men sit in the recliner and women in the kitchen...lol My family is always in the kitchen. My sister and her family, my parents and my family celebrate Christmas in January. Due to distance and work related jobs. Every year we plan what we are having ahead of time. Our tradition is usually food we've had abroad growing up overseas. Normally with Asia influences. It's always a special treat when we normally don't make the dishes often throughout the year.
My cooking triumphs
Unknown to me when I came up with a chicken and dumpling recipe of my own, my father was floored & delighted and told me it tasted just like his mother's.......My mom dropped her jaw because it was better then her's. It's a staple with my husband and kids.
My cooking tragedies
I had found a recipe for a Pretzel Pie(like Pecan Pie), thought it looked good and I didn't follow the recipe when it said unsalted pretzels. I just grabbed the normal stuff with the salt on it, made the pie, and my dad and husband were painting with thrist. And making weird pickle sour expressions, when I realized the pie was over salted. Oopppss! I never made it again.
