Banana Bread Ice Cream Sandwiches

I got hit with the nastiest of head colds over the weekend.  Complete with a sore throat, incredibly stuffy nose, and the feeling that my head might explode.  Which is really no fun when you’re pregnant and can’t take any medication.  Or hungry and can’t taste anything.   
It didn’t hold me back from eating sushi with my parents who were in town for the weekend, or downing a few slices of pizza Saturday night, or eating these Banana Bread Ice Cream Sandwiches.  
I’m pretty sure it all tasted amazing.  Especially these….

My mother-in-law told me about the idea for Banana Bread Ice Cream Sandwiches she’d seen somewhere a while back.  I was really excited to try it but just never got around to it. Isn’t it kind of a genius idea?

When my mom showed up with about five loaves of homemade banana bread, I immediately knew I had to try this.  Next time you make banana bread, you have to give it a try to!

Let the ice cream soften a bit, then spread it onto a slice of banana bread.  

Top it with another slice of bread, wrap it in saran wrap, and stick it back in the freezer until the ice cream is freezes again.  

I tried to take pictures as fast I could before the ice cream melted, but you can see it started to get soft.  I always love when ice cream sandwiches start to melt a little before you’re done eating it, so I didn’t mind so much.
