Vanilla Macadamia Nut Ice Cream Pie

This Hula Pie recipe was inspired by our trip to San Diego earlier this year. While in San Diego we took a day trip to La Jolla. We walked down on the beach to see the sea lions and had lunch at Duke’s. Duke’s was the perfect La Jolla lunch location. We snagged a seat on the edge of the balcony and had a great view of the beach.

Lunch was great, but the dessert was the star of the meal. I had never heard of Hula Pie, but it is famous at Duke’s. Vanilla macadamia nut ice cream pie, topped with hot fudge, macadamia nuts, and whipped cream in an Oreo crust. It was to-die-for. I knew right away that I had to make this at home.

How to Make Duke’s Hula Pie

This pie was super easy to make. Start with a store-bought Oreo crust. Next, make the ice cream. Whip some heavy cream until stiff. Gently fold in sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and chopped macadamia nuts. Spread the mixture into the crust. It will have a slight mound in the middle. Place the crust in the freezer and let it set up. When you are ready to serve the pie, pour some hot fudge on top of the pie and sprinkle with more macadamia nuts. Finally, add some dollops of whipped cream and serve.

  1. Saved this recipe to make for my birthday today. I couldn’t find a premade Oreo crust so I made that by hand too. I will try harder to find a premade crust as I think it might come out of the pan easier. My crust is like cement to the pan. However, the recipe for this is amazing!!! When I told my husband about this recipe two months ago he’s been bugging me about it ever since. It definitely didn’t disappoint. I’ve never made ice cream before and I’m so surprised at how good this was! Thank you!!
