twd ~ Banana Coconut Ice Cream Pie


Check out this recipe on Spike Bakes. Thanks Spike for a wonderful summer pick!

The star of this dessert is the crust. Buttery coconut and shortbread cookies! Magically, it tastes even better than it sounds!

On top of the crust is a thin layer of sliced banana. I did not dig the frozen banana taste or texture. I ended up digging them out. Not really a fan of frozen fruit.

There was another ripe banana mixed into the ice cream. I couldn't really taste it so much. Perhaps because I used German Chocolate Cake ice cream instead of plain chocolate so there was caramel and fudgey cake pieces for the banana to contend with.

This was a great dessert to have waiting in the freezer when my mom came up this weekend. After a yummy dinner of spicey Thai curry, this was perfect for sitting on the balcony in the cool summer evening.

Ah, that's what I thought - that the frozen banana wouldn't work. I left it out.
Yours looks delicious!

The crust, the crust, I wish I'd made the crust. Sometime I will. I knew I'd like it too much.
I'm a huge banana anything lover, but I think I'd have left them out of this pie, too.

Wasn't the crust awesome? I left out the frozen bananas and liked it that way.
