Eating ice cream right out the tub is great, but sometimes you want to get a little creative with your ice cream creations. The next time you’re in the mood for vanilla ice cream or gelato, turn it into a delicious banana split. Add bananas, chunks of brownie, and chocolate syrup for a heavenly combination.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint of vanilla bean ice cream or gelato, such as Talenti
  • 1 banana, diced
  • Brownie chunks
  • Chocolate syrup, to taste

Directions

Scoop as much ice cream as you want into a bowl, then add diced bananas, brownie chunks, and chocolate syrup to taste.

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.
