Notes

Note: Traditionally, banana splits have three different types of ice cream. A good way to cheat this is to buy neapolitan and scoop from each section.

Ingredients

  • banana, halved
  • scoops ice cream*
  • 1  Tablespoon  chocolate syrup
  • 1  Tablespoon  chopped almonds
  • maraschino cherry

Directions

In a sundae cup or bowl, place the 2 banana slices. Then, between the slices, place the ice cream. Drizzle with the chocolate syrup and almonds. Top with a maraschino cherry. Pop in a rom-com and enjoy a banana split or five.

Banana Split Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Banana Split Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
