Nutella Pudding Pops

The two ingredient, ultra easy ice cream and pudding alternative recipe. Since I made my Nutella Ice Cream post I have received many requests for an alternative to the bananas in the recipe. I didn't think that would be a very difficult request to fulfill, I was quite mistaken.


Bananas have such a very unique texture and taste combination. Finding something to play a similar role but not the same texture and an underwhelming flavor proved challenging. Finally though I am pleased to present my recipe for Nutella Pudding Pops. It's thicker like a pudding, the texture is smooth, and the taste is Nutella heaven.

Nutella Pudding Pops

Recipe

8 tb Nutella
2 cups of Papaya
makes roughly 7 servings

Choose a ripe papaya of good quality, with lots of yellow skin and a mushy feel. Cut in half, scoop out the seeds. Then scoop out the papaya out of the skin and onto a paper towel covered plate.

The paper towel should soak up excess juice, you don't want too much liquid. Place the papaya and Nutella in a blender or food processor and blend till smooth.

Then pour into popsicle molds, let freeze and enjoy!

 The papaya gives a very light tropical undertone to the rich chocolate Nutella. To cut calories or for a healthier snack cut the Nutella down to 6 or even 4 tablespoons, it still tastes great. Eight tablespoons was my ideal flavor and it's very heavy on the Nutella, you may enjoy a lighter flavor.


A slight bonus, during experimenting I found that with just a little more Nutella I could get the consistency of a real pudding. A real pudding that is impossible to stop eating...

Final notes, some points of interest on papayas, preliminary medical research suggests it can act as a contraceptive please do not eat papaya if you are or plan to become pregnant. Second, if you are allergic to latex please do your research before consuming papayas. Unripe papayas naturally contain small amounts of latex. Finally if you'd like to learn more about papayas this is a good starting point.
