Have you ever taken some of your favorites foods and tried to morph them together? I sure have! I’ve taken some of my favorite casseroles and turned them into soup. I’ve turned some of my favorite meals into impressive sandwiches.
When we decided to share 31 Days of Summertime Treats with y’all, I really wanted to do an ice cream sandwich but not the traditional kind. I wanted something that was a little unexpected. Then it came to me! I’ll combine a couple of my favorite treats into one! A treat that I look forward to is the Banana Cream Pie Milkshakes that Sonic carries from time to time. I also love a good ice cream sandwich on a hot summer day.
Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches!
It’s easy enough that your kids can help put them together.
Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches
- 1 cup milk
- 1 box instant vanilla pudding (3.9 oz)
- 8 oz whipped topping
- 1 medium banana (peeled and chopped small)
- 1 box honey graham crackers (crackers broken in halves)
Whisk together pudding and milk. Wait about a minute until the pudding thickens.
Gently fold in the whipped topping.
Fold in banana pieces.
Pour mixture into a freezer safe dish, cover with plastic wrap, and freeze until frozen completely.
Once frozen, break apart and put into a food processor, Pulse until smooth. *Don't over process! You wan't your mixture to be firm enough to stay on the grahams. Over processing will make it too soft and the ice cream with slide right off.
Assemble your sandwiches by adding about a tablespoon of your "ice cream" to the middle of a graham cracker, add graham cracker to the top and smoosh the ice cream to the edges of the grahams.
Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze until firm.
Fold in a tablespoon of peanut butter to your pudding and whipped topping mixture for a "Chunky Monkey".
Instead of bananas, try blueberries or strawberries.
Use chocolate pudding for a Chocolate Cream Pie Ice Cream Sandwich.
Love cheesecake? Me too! Use the Cheesecake Pudding mix instead of vanilla, and add your favorite berries.
