Tuesdays with Dorie: Banana Coconut Ice Cream Pie

Spike of spike.bakes selected Banana Coconut Ice Cream Pie this week (he'll have the recipe for ya). Check this recipe out. You take shortbread cookies, coconut and butter. Cook them down a little then press into a pie dish and freeze. Stir chocolate ice cream with pureed bananas to make the filling. Freeze. Easy as pie! No baking!! Perfect for the upcoming summer! Well for those of use getting summer this year! In Utah it just snowed!
Anyways, this crust is awesome. The overall pie, I was honestly not crazy about. Since it's all frozen, it's hard to slice and my crust stuck to the dish when getting a slice out. Then it was hard to eat just a bite, it was "hard". Well I did freeze mine a day + overnight so maybe that's why. I had to let it sit out a bit to slice it and eat. The kids liked it though. I used a dark chocolate gelato and left the rum out of mine and sliced the bananas for the top per slice of pie.

You know what I'm thinking, this would be great done as a Banana Coconut Chocolate pudding/cream pie instead. But that crust! I may have to think of something else to use that with too, Hmmm....something key lime maybe?

The snow in my front yard yesterday did not scream summer! But this dessert did. We loved it. I did take it out of the freezer 30 minutes before cutting it, that helped. I will make it again!
