Step 3

Transfer the banana and strawberry ice cream into a separate container, and mix in 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut. If the ice cream is a bit too soft to enjoy right away cover with plastic wrap, and place in the freezer until slightly firm.

Tip

  • If wrapping with plastic, make sure that one layer of the plastic wrap touches the banana ice cream. This will help prevent crystallization.

Step 4

Scoop the ice cream into 2-3 serving dishes, garnish with a bit of coconut flakes, and serve immediately.
