Strawberry Banana Pound Cake

As I sit here with my pint of Strawberry banana pound cake, writing this blog, I am 37 weeks pregnant. My husband and I are on the edge of our seats with anticipation about meeting the latest addition to our family and introducing her to the world. I wonder if this is the same way Blue Bell feels when they debut a new flavor?

Well Blue Bell, let me be the first to say congratulations on your new arrival, strawberry banana pound cake...she's absolutely perfect!

The chunks of pound cake are deliciously moist and a little chewy. The slices of strawberry are ripe, sweet and just a little tart. The banana ice cream is the perfect base and the whipped topping swirl could be overlooked, but I wouldn't dare!

Thank you for making these last few weeks of my pregnancy a little more sweet with this perfectly balanced and slightly decadent treat.

5 out of 5 scoops for cake and ice cream!


  1. Lydia, i recently ate a whole half-gallon of this ice cream at one sitting. I agree with everything you say except for one thing: In the ice cream i ate, the strawberry chunks were frozen, and i do NOT like the way the frozen strawberries tasted. They did not taste like fruit, but more like squishy cubes of ice.

    For that reason, i would give this ice cream 4/5 stars, because everything else about it was excellent. Loved the moist chunks of poundcake and the banana ice cream and swirls of topping!

  2. PS ... 37 weeks! You are overdue. :)

    Hope you have a beautiful baby very soon!
