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

  • 1 banana, halved
  • 3 scoops ice cream* (see notes)
  • 1 Tablespoon chocolate syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped almonds
  • 1 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.
