'The Genie' --- Two Desserts for Kids of All Ages

2           bags cookies (recommended: Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies)
6 to 8    bananas, sliced
2           cups milk
1           (5-ounce) box instant French vanilla pudding
1           (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1           (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1           (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping thawed, or equal amount sweetened whipped cream

Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.

In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies. OPTIONAL.....Add mini marshmallows to top and extra banana rounds. Refrigerate for a couple of hours. 
NOTE: Make sure frozen whipped topping is well thawed

This is a true comfort dessert. Moderation is recommended...Hahahaha!

They’re simple to make....nobody wants to work hard in the kitchen in this weather.
Makes approximately six 5 oz. popsicles 

2             tablespoons raw sugar ( I used Three)
1/4          cup water
3             cups watermelon, seeds removed and cubed
3             tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
1             cup pomegranate juice

To make the simple syrup, bring the water to boil, add the sugar, and remove from heat.

Next, puree the watermelon, and add the simple syrup and lime juice.

Pour the watermelon mixture into popsicle molds, or paper Dixie cups, and fill to two-thirds full. Allow the mixture to freeze for 30 minutes, and then pour in the pomegranate juice. After 30 minutes, add the popsicle sticks. Freeze ice pops overnight for best curing. Very refreshing

This recipe is from  'The Genie'       Canada
