This Nutella Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Cake has a no-bake graham cracker crust and an easy no churn ice cream! It makes an impressive frozen dessert.
June has always been one of my favorite months. It means school’s out along with the official start of summer.
I just love how much more happier and relaxed everyone is and there always seems to be some kind of celebration going on like a wedding or a birthday.
And it just so happens that my blogging friend Samantha is celebrating a blog anniversary today too 🙂

Giveaway details are listed below after the recipe.
No celebration would be complete without a cake so I brought along this Nutella Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Cake.
It makes the perfect birthday treat to cool down with during the hot warmer months.
Plus ice cream cakes are my absolute favorite kind of cakes especially.
They are so easy to customize and you can make them way ahead of time and store them in the freezer.
Plus they’re so simple to put together and yet they still make an impressive dessert.
The creamy and rich Nutella ice cream is no-churn so you won’t have to lug out that heavy ice cream maker.
As much as I love homemade ice cream from my ice cream maker, there are days I forget to plan ahead and store it in the freezer. With this no-churn ice cream, you won’t have to worry about that.
You will ONLY need 5 ingredients for this ice cream too – Nutella, condensed milk, sugar, vanilla and heavy cream.
Then you spread the ice cream over a no-bake graham cracker crust and banana slices, then add some crumbled Oreo cookies and spread on another layer of whipped cream for a pretty contrast.
I love the look of the different layers but you can certainly leave out any layers you don’t want:)

Don’t forget to top it all off with the delightful chocolate Nutella ganache and have some fun and decorate it however you like.
I added a few Ferraro Rocher chocolate, chopped hazelnuts and chocolate shavings.
No matter how you serve it, Nutella just makes everything better ♥♥♥
