Banana splits are great for summer (and filling too!)
With so many different flavors or ice cream and toppings - what are some of your favorites??
If made the “traditional way” in a banana boat then it’s:
split banana, 3 scoops of ice cream - vanilla, orange sherbet, strawberry swirl, topped with fresh strawberries mixedwith sugar (or the frozen ones thawed are fine!), whipped cream, crushed nuts of choice, 3 maraschino cherries on top
split banana, 3 scoops of ice cream - heavenly hash, chocolate chip, and chocolate fudge, topped with either hot fudge sauce or chocolate syrup, crushed nuts of choice, whipped cream and maraschino cherries
split banana, 3 scoops of ice cream - spumoni, pistachio and vanilla - topped with strawberries, whipped cream, pistachio nuts and maraschino cherries
when I want a “little banana split” it’s usually a half banana sliced, a scoop or ice cream or sherbet, strawberries are my favorite (unless I go chocolate), whipped cream, nuts and a cherry.
also - sliced fresh peaches, plums or nectarines can easily replace bananas - even fresh pineapple, orange, tangerine, kiwi, etc.
It’s fun to play around with different combinations…what are your favorites?
(and if I am having a chocolate attack - replace chopped nuts with chocolate covered nuts of choice or chocolate covered raisins!!!
