The Perfect Banoffee Pie Made with Ice Cream!
I know, I know! Summer is almost over. Well it isn’t quite over yet! I have just the treat that will allow you to linger in summer’s good graces a little while longer: Frozen Banoffee Pie.
Most of us know about how fantastic the traditional banoffee pie with its sensational caramel flavor and hints of banana throughout is. This pie definitely pays homage to the original but adds a very distinct and delicious ingredient to the mix: ice cream, Blue Bunny to be exact.
What Is Banoffee Pie?
A Banoffee Pie is a classic English dessert made with bananas, cream and toffee. The usual way includes vanilla cream but it can also be made with chocolate or coffee as well.
The base is usually made with biscuits or cookies as the crust but it can also be made with graham cracker, which is what I used in this recipe.
The combination of toffee which is very similar to caramel or butterscotch along with bananas and cream is just to die for!
How To Make Banoffee Pie!
To start, I begin with a graham cracker crust. You can buy one from the grocery store or you can make your own graham cracker crust.
Next I add a layer of caramel sauce to the crust. Again, you can buy a wonderful artisan one at a quality grocery store or you can make the Real deal caramel icing which would take this over the top. Slices of banana slices are added as well.
Next I added a full carton of softened Blue Bunny’s premium vanilla ice cream over the top. Yep I did folks! Then I topped the ice cream with MORE caramel sauce and banana slices and fresh whipped cream. It was sensational! And it couldn’t have been easier to create this sensational frozen banoffee pie.

I am not ready for summer to end because the summer weather was really messed up this year. We got the heat before the rain, cold and smoke and the summer went way too fast. I so enjoy basking in the warm summer sun and just did not get enough this year.

Summer weather is still going strong over here! Unfortunately 🙂 But this pie makes it all worth it! A slice of this, with the banana and caramel, sounds amazing. And great photos, frozen stuff is not the easiest to photograph! Props to you! (guess you don’t become a cookbook author for nothing 🙂 )

Oh, this looks so deliciously good. Great way to end the summer.
I’m not ready for summer to be over because I don’t have fall/winter clothes. Moved from tropical weather to a city that experiences all 4 seasons!

I don’t want summer to end because I love the way my daughter squeals in happiness the very moment we step into the sunshine. Her first interactive summer is one I’ll remember forever. She’ll never be this excited simply about daylight again
