Ice cream sandwiches with toasted coconut banana bread and filled with creamy coconut ice cream sandwiched in between. Enjoy this classic frozen treat with a fun twist that is gluten free and dairy free.
With only a few weeks of summer left, we are trying to soak it up with all the fun things we remember as a kid. For me, there was nothing better than an ice cream sandwich to cool down with on a warm summer day.
These Toasted Coconut Banana Bread Ice Cream Sandwiches are an upgraded version with a tropical twist on this classic treat.
The gluten-free banana bread was amazing all on its own but I couldn’t resist stuffing it with some coconut ice cream for the filling. The flavor combination of banana and coconut were a match made in heaven.
The gluten free banana bread batter was baked in this Wilton Ice Cream Sandwich Pan but if you don’t have one, you could definitely use either a jumbo muffin tin or a regular muffin tin filled 1/3 of the way for smaller ice cream sandwiches. The cakes will be just the right thickness to sandwich a scoop or so of creamy coconut dairy-free ice cream between them.
Or instead of using the ice cream recipe below, go for your favorite ice cream – it will be amazing either way! Just don’t forget to roll the sides into a pile of toasted coconut, sprinkles or even chocolate chips. Then be prepared to bring out the kid in you!
These homemade and healthier ice cream sandwiches make a great non-dairy and gluten free frozen treat to beat the summer heat!
