{make it} vanilla banana ice cream small stacks…



Oh Joy Eats reader Sanaa emailed me the other day with a fun bite-sized snack she came up with and wanted to share called Vanilla Small Stacks. While throwing a little get together for friends, Sanaa decided to combine thin slices of bananas with vanilla wafers, topped with blueberries and cinnamon for a sweet & easy bite-sized dessert. I loved her idea so much that I tried it myself and added an extra special ingredient…ice cream! So here you go…my take on Sanaa's vanilla small stacks…Vanilla Banana Ice Cream Small Stacks!


You'll need:

-Vanilla Wafers {Sanaa and I both prefer Trader Joe's Ultimate Vanilla Wafers which have real flecks of vanilla beans}

-ice cream {I used vanilla here, but chocolate or coffee would be delish}

-thin slices of banana

-cinnamon {just a shake for each stack}

Drop a teaspoon of ice cream on one wafer, cover with banana slices, sprinkle with cinnamon, and finally, top with the second wafer. As a non-dairy alternative, omit the ice cream for Sanaa's original creation vanilla stack creation {bottom photo}. Enjoy!
