Using a food processor, chop oreos until they resemble fine crumbs.
Place oreo crumbs on a plate.
Remove packaging of the ice cream pint, keeping the ice cream shape in tact.
Roll ice cream in oreo crumbs until covered.
Freeze until banana creme anglaise is ready or until you are ready to serve. Slice into 4-5 pieces; serve with banana creme anglaise and strawberries.
BANANA CREME ANGLAISE:
Fill a large bowl with ice water and set aside for later.
In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks with a whisk for 1-2 minutes until they are very smooth. Set aside. Add sugar and whisk for 2 more minutes, or until the sugar is fully incorporated and it is pale yellow.
Heat the heavy cream in a double-boiler until it is just barely simmering (don't let it boil!). Heat the cream until it reaches 180°F.
When cream reaches 180°F, VERY SLOWLY pour the hot cream into the egg and sugar mixture, whisking constantly.
Return the cream and egg mixture to the double-boiler and heat slowly, continuously stirring until it reaches 185°F. The creme should be thicker, but still pourable.
Set the top bowl of the double-boiler in the ice water bowl to cool. Stir in the banana extract. Every so often, stir the banana creme anglaise until it is fully cooled.
I put that this serves 2-4 people - depending on how many slices you're looking to serve. I'd highly recommend 1 pint for just 2 people, but for those of you who are as health conscious as I should be, you can definitely stretch it out to feed 4 people.Use an instant read thermometer to take the temperature of the creme anglaise.For the double-boiler, put one pot/bowl (not glass!) on top of a sauce pan, making sure it does not touch the water in the sauce pan.The banana creme anglaise makes about 1 cup; you likely will not use all of this will 1 pint of ice cream, but it keeps well in the fridge and is perfect to top on fruit, tarts, pastries, or another ice cream cake!
