Spoon 1½ tbsp-sized dollops of the batter onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper and spread out. Sprinkle with a pinch of extra coconut and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and cool on the sheet then transfer to a wire rack. If the ice cream is not soft enough to spread, microwave for 30 seconds. Spread a layer on a macaroon then top with slivers of strawberry and another macaroon. Freeze for at least 30 minutes.
