Creamy Banana Pops

It's getting hot outside.  Time to dig out and clean my Popsicle molds. These delicious frozen treats were a favorite of mine as a kid.  When I was a kid there weren't the exotic flavors that you can make today.  Pudding pops, berry pops, smoothie pops, yogurt pops, - you get the picture.

Today's recipe is for creamy banana pops.  So easy to make and so creamy and delicious.  Take some ripe bananas and toss them in a blender with some cream, milk, sugar,  and vanilla extract.  Swirl until smooth.  Pour the mixture into some Popsicle molds. Put on the tops and freeze.

If you don't have Popsicle molds  - not to worry.   Just pour the mixture into 5-ounce paper cups.   Let the pops freeze for about 1 hour so you can insert a wooden stick in the center.  Place back in the freezer until solid.  Remove from freezer and enjoy a delicious frozen treat.  A great way to enjoy the hot summer days:)
