In a microwave safe bowl, soften ice cream for 10 seconds in the microwave. *Repeat process until ice cream is creamy. In a large bowl, spoon in softened ice cream, blueberries and smashed bananas. Fold until mixed thoroughly. Using a spoon, spoon a generous amount of ice cream mixture onto the flat side of one oatmeal cookie. Spread ice cream mixture across the entire cookie, leaving about ½” of space from the sides. Top with a second oatmeal cookie and lightly press together. Wrap the ice cream sandwich firmly in a piece of plastic wrap and freeze for 1 hour. Makes the perfect summertime treat!
