So this started out to be something else. 🙂 Last week I told you about my new Poptail obsession after I got a popsicle maker set. After making the Tequila Rose Strawberry Poptails I was looking forward to making more using other liqueurs.
I mentioned that next up was Banana Pudding Sippin’ Cream.
So I got busy making them this weekend, only to find that they never would freeze. I suspect it is because of the alcohol content in the Sippin’ Cream. It is 40 proof, which falls in the 40-80 proof range of alcohols that won’t freeze. So I screwed up there. 🙂
But I refuse to be daunted by something so delicious, so I changed directions. I went with a LUSCIOUS soft serve ice cream.
First up, let me show you how I started out making this dessert.
It’s very easy to make and doesn’t call for many ingredients. You use:
- Banana Pudding Sippin’ Cream
- Whipped Topping
- Vanilla Pudding Mix
I mixed the ingredients all together in a bowl with a whisk.
It comes together nicely.
Then I poured it into my popsicle mold and put it in the freezer. I waited about an hour and a half then put the popsicle sticks in. I left it overnight but it never froze.
I had some leftover mixture so we ate that as pudding, and it was delicious.
Since I figured out this was never going to freeze, I took a look at what I had and it was the consistency of soft-serve ice cream.
So I scooped it out of the mold into a pretty ice cream dish and topped it with some caramel topping. Oh goodness. It was DELECTABLE. So I have NO problem with changing directions on this one. I would make this on purpose.
The key to this dessert is the Banana Pudding Sippin’ Cream. You can find it at good liquor stores.
If you dare, you could just drink this straight from the bottle. Or mason jar, more specifically. 🙂 It tastes better really cold, and it’s all the flavors you love from banana pudding with a really good kick to it. Bananas, whipped cream, vanilla wafers, and booze. Lots of booze.
This tastes like whiskey with a little bit of banana pudding mixed in. It leaves that warmth in your throat and chest that a nice whiskey gives you. So if that can be transformed into an ice cream, uh, yes, please. 🙂
Here is the recipe I used:
- 1 1/2 cups of Banana Pudding Sippin’ Cream
- 1 package of Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix (3.4 ounces)
- 1/2 cup of cold milk
- 2 tsp. of ground cinnamon
- 2 cups of Cool Whip whipped topping
Whisk the milk, Sippin’ Cream, and pudding mix until smooth.
Fold in the Cool Whip, and add the cinnamon.
Freeze for several hours or overnight for ice cream consistency.
Garnish with toppings of your choice. The caramel syrup is delicious. You could add chopped walnuts or crumbled Vanilla Wafers too.
That’s it! So easy. And a really elevated way to enjoy banana pudding, which I happen to love.
Be sure to serve it in a lovely ice cream dish, and use a real silver spoon if possible.
I love using my good silver for hot and cold things because it takes on the temperature of the food. Eating soup warms the spoon and ice cream makes the spoon very cold and it even gets a little bit of condensation on it.
I don’t know why I love that, but I do.
Eating ice cream with an equally cold spoon is just the way to go. 🙂
So if you want a different way to enjoy the flavors of banana pudding, I hope you’ll give Banana Pudding Sippin’ Cream Ice Cream a try! If you do, let me know what you think!
