TWD : Banana Coconut Ice Cream Pie


Spike of
spikebakes chose this wonderful no bake recipe this week and even if I have a wonderful ice cream place just around the corner I decided to make Dorie's Chocolate Ganache ice cream (wonderful !!).


I used an unsweetened coconut for the crust letting the cookies be the only sweetener and actually made half the crust dose.
I had problems figuring out how much is a pint of chocolate ice cream and in the end eyeballed it when adding it to the bananas.
I loved my slice: we'll see tonight what the rest of the family thinks.
Please visit Spike for the recipe and the other bakers for more Ice cream pie.

Love the ganache. It's got a milk chocolate look to it. And I would have liked 1/2 the crust instead of the whole two cups of coconut. The photos on your blog are captivating. Love the heart shaped cupcakes.
