a pink ice cream pie

My daughter turned 4 last week; and she requested a pink treat.

So I came up with this:  banana raspberry ice cream pie / cake

Before you start you want to peel and freeze bananas at least 8 … I like to freeze them for about 4 hours … otherwise they get rock hard frozen and are harder to blend into a smooth ice-cream ( but this would depend on your freezer )

Then you want to make the crust and throw that in the freezer as well

Crust ingredients  ( place the following in a food processor and mix well )

  • 2 cups of pecans
  • 2 table spoons of coconut oil
  • a handful cashews
  • and a pinch of vanilla
  • some maple syrup or dates to sweeten  ( I added a little of both )

Check for the consistency … you want to be able to shape it and not for it to crumble … so if it is too soft add more nuts… if too crumbly add some coconut  oil or maple syrup. (but be carful as just a teaspoon can be all you need )

Shape into small pies for individual servings or a big pie and place in freezer for an hour or more.

Once the bananas are ready blend them with frozen raspberries.  I love the taste  of this ; as the bananas are sweet and the raspberries take the sweetness down. I usually add enough raspberries  so that it is not too  sweet … probably about 1 – 2 cup full of raspberries

Once blended  take the pie crust out … fill it up and place it back in the freezer for a bit to get the ice-cream filling to harden a little…

and the you are all set 🙂

I had extra ice-cream left over which was delicious without the crust as well.
