I love the versatility of this dessert too. You can virtually turn it into an ice cream/pudding flavor combination you like. You can really get creative (hint…this is really good with strawberry ice cream, fresh strawberries and vanilla pudding).

Here is how to make this tasty ice cream treat.

  1. You know, this looks so good. I think I would use the Coconut Creme flavor in place of vanilla instant pudding. The flavor is awesome compared to the vanilla instant pudding. >>Is it kept frozen in the freezer or in the refridgerator?<< I wonder how crushed Chessman cookies would be in place of butterd crackers? Or maybe crushed vanilla sandwich cookies? Thank you!
