STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE ICE CREAM BARS

Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars are a delicious no bake dessert for a hot summer day. They taste just like the traditional true Humor Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream popsicles! An easy dessert recipe with layers of vanilla & strawberry ice cream, a crumbled Golden Oreo topping and no-bake cookie crust. 

They had been critically the exceptional – I should never face up to them! they had a bright strawberry middle surrounded by means of vanilla ice cream and a strawberry crumb coating. OMG, so right!

And i’ve been demise to try and recreate them for the longest time!

Closing month, I subsequently had a risk to remake my personal home made version of those nostalgic treats or even protected options in case you’re low carb or keto.

WHY IREALLY LIKE THESE STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM BARS
These flavor even better than the unique from what I don't forget. And, you can cause them to a-head for a birthday or special occasion if you have employer coming over.

STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE ICE CREAM BARS

INGREDIENTS:
Cookie Crust:

  • 20 Golden Oreo cookies crushed with the cream filling (about 2 cups) (OR you can use any Vanilla Creme Sandwich Cookies - they even have Gluten Free ones or Use Nui Snickerdoodles for a low carb / keto version)
  • 3 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 4-1/2 - 5 cups your favorite vanilla ice cream homemade or store-bought (use Halo Top Vanilla Bean, Keto Pint or Wink Vanilla for a low carb version)
  • 2-1/2 cups strawberry sorbet homemade or store-bought (use Halo Top Strawberry or Wink Strawberry Ice Cream for a low carb / keto version)

Crumbled Topping:

  • 8-10 Golden Oreo cookies crushed (use my Keto Sugar Cookie recipe or Nui Snickerdoodles for a low carb version)
  • 1 Tablespoon butter softened
  • 4 Tablespoons freeze-dried strawberries pulsed into powder* OR strawberry sugar-free gelatin (jello) powder

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Line an 8 x 8 square baking dish with parchment or wax paper leaving an overhang for easier removal of the bars. Set aside.
  2. Make the cookie crust - In a food processor, add the entire cookies (no need to remove the cream filling) and pulse into fine crumbs. Add the melted butter and stir until combined. Press mixture into the bottom of the lined baking dish. Place in freezer for about 20 minutes to set.
  3. Make the crumbled topping - In a small bowl, zip-top bag or food processor, add Oreo cookies and crush into large crumbs. Mix with softened butter and press together into pea-sized pieces. Combine with freeze-dried strawberry powder (or strawberry jello powders). Set aside.
  4. Assemble - Remove vanilla ice cream and strawberry sorbet from freezer to soften (takes about 15-20 minutes). When ready, scoop around 2 cups of vanilla ice cream over the cookie crust and spread evenly using an offset spatula.
  5. Place pan in freezer to harden slightly (about 10-20 minutes).
  6. Next, spread the sorbet over the vanilla ice cream layer evenly. Again, place pan in freezer for 10 minutes if needed. Add the final layer of vanilla ice cream spreading evenly.
  7. Sprinkle the strawberry cookie crumbs evenly over the bars. Place in the freezer for 3-4 hours or overnight.
  8. Lift out of pan using the parchment paper overhang. Allow to sit out for about 5-10 minutes so the crust softens up slightly. Using a very sharp knife, cut into square rectangles. Store bars in freezer until ready to serve.
