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.
