Banana Butterscotch Coconut Nice Cream

An ice cream concept inspired by a childhood favorite dessert.

Growing up, my mom’s seven-layer magic bars were a beloved dessert by all 8 of my siblings. So much so that after baking them, she would usually have to hide the magic bars in her room to avoid us eating them all in one sitting.

This banana-based ice cream is a nod to that delicious magic bar flavor. It incorporates a bit of almond flavor for the nuttiness, coconut flakes, and of course, butterscotch chips for the unmistakable sweet rich flavor. It’s a simple few step recipe that’s perfect for whipping up a weeknight bedtime snack in just minutes.
