Bonkers for Banana Pudding Ice Cream

July 7, 2015

Banana pudding is a nostalgic dessert and this summer version adds ice cream to the bowl.  While no actual pudding is in this dessert, it still echoes known and loved flavors in the old standby. Fresh banana slices are sauteed in sugar and butter before they poured over vanilla ice cream and served with vanilla wafer cookies.  This warm weather treat would also be delicious with a drizzle of salted caramel sauce.  Click here to see the other recipes using Breyers vanilla ice cream.
