Tropical Ice Cream Sandwich

“Tropical Ice Cream Sandwich”

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Breyers for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

My daughter is a big dessert lover but often, we try to come up with fun dessert ideas that incorporate fruit. Peach cobbler, strawberry shortcake, fruit parfait… just to name a few examples. However, this time, I wanted to do something different and think outside the box. We decided to re-create this recipe for a tropical ice cream sandwich that we found on the Breyers website.

Breyers has partnered with Chef Antonia Lofaso to create 5 fun, family-friendly recipes featuring Natural Vanilla to encourage family moments together. My daughter was excited to create a delicious recipe so we got started!

Any recipe that uses something like Breyers Natural Vanilla is a favorite of mine. Breyers is committed to using high quality ingredients. Breyers Natural Vanilla is made with fresh cream, sugar and milk, and sustainably farmed vanilla beans.

Here are a few reasons why we LOVE Breyers Natural Vanilla:

Breyers Natural Vanilla is America’s No. 1 vanilla ice cream, and parents now have additional reasons to feel good about serving it to their family.

Breyers now sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*.

All Breyers vanilla is real and from sustainably farmed, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ vanilla beans.

Breyers products are available in grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99 – $5.99.

*Suppliers of other ingredients such as cookies, candies & sauces may not be able to make this pledge. The FDA states that no significant difference has been shown between dairy derived from rBST-treated and non-rBST-treated cows.

Here’s how it works… 


  • 2 (1/4-inch thick) fresh pineapple slices
  • 1 cup Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream, slightly softened
  • 2 Tbsp. toasted flaked coconut


  1. Grill pineapple slices over low to medium heat for 90 seconds on each side. Allow to cool briefly.
  2. Sandwich the softened Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream between the 2 grilled slices of pineapple. Coat sides in toasted coconut. Slice in half and serve. (You are welcome to skip this option if you have AHEM kids who AHEM dislike AHEM coconut….)
