ICE CREAM SANDWICH WITH BANANA AND STRAWBERRY

Here i came with a scrumptious dessert recipe. Having some ice cream after our meal is something heavenly. Right?? And if it  is nestled in between two wafers, cookies or crunchy coconut !!!!!...for sure, it makes your tummy yummy. An ice cream sandwich with your favorite fruit. And this is the recipe which makes my tummy and me happy. A dessert with chocolate ice cream, banana, strawberry and desiccated coconut. I love desiccated coconut recipes and i was in a mood to make something special with that...So instead of wafers i used desiccated coconut, that looks wow!!!. Keep in mind, the banana and strawberry for this dessert must be sweet enough for the best result....Do try...



INGREDIENTS (serves 6 - 7 ice cream sandwiches)


Banana                        - 2 nos, ripened, sweet
Chocolate Ice cream   - 2 small scoops (for the taste and sweetness)
Strawberry                  - 3 nos, chopped
Desiccated coconut     - 1 small cup
Strawberry syrup         - a drop(for the light pink color only)
Sweetened condensed milk - 4 tbsp (for mixing desiccated coconut, so take accordingly. Remember, do not make it creamy)


PREPARATION



  • Slice the bananas and  place it on a tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Freeze it for 2 hours. Do not keep more. 
  • Cut the strawberries into fine pieces. Set aside.
  • Then take a bowl and combine condensed milk and strawberry syrup ( a single drop will do) until a pinkish color. To this add the desiccated coconut and mix well with a spoon. It should not be a creamy consistency. It should be like bread crumbs. 
  • Keep refrigerated for 30 minutes.(do not skip this step)
  • When done, take out the mixture and line  a parchment paper inside a square dish. Drop the mixture and level with a spatula very well until smooth. Freeze it overnight. So the crust is ready.
  • Now take out the chopped bananas.(after 2 hrs)
  • Immediately blend it in a blender until creamy. Do not blend for more time as it will release water.  
  • Transfer it to a bowl and mix it with chocolate ice cream (kept at room temperature) along with chopped strawberries.
  • Line another square dish with cling film / parchment and transfer it into the dish. Level very well evenly.
  • Freeze it over night.
  • When done, take the frozen banana mixture and frozen coconut mixture out.
  • Cut it in equal shapes and assemble ice cream sandwich .
  • Serve chill. Yummy ( finish it before it melts).
  • Cover each prepared sandwich with plastic wrap and freeze for storing.
