BANANA SPLIT

 

Banana Split Recipe

There are as many theories on what constitutes a “proper” banana split as there are on how to cure the hiccups. Here is a basic split with variations.

Halve one large banana lengthwise for each serving. Brush halves with lemon
juice. Place in “split” plates with halves facing each other. Place a scoop each of vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate ice cream in center of plate.

Variations:

Top with whipped cream. Sprinkle with nuts and top with maraschino cherry.
Fill center of plate with banana, coconut, and pineapple ice cream. Top with shredded coconut and pineapple syrup or pineapple preserves. Use any 3 flavors of ice cream. Top with same flavor jam, jelly, or preserve and sprinkle with toasted slivered almonds. Use vanilla fudge, chocolate chip, and chocolate ice cream. Top with chocolate-flavored whipped cream and curls of chocolate. Use any flavors of ice cream and top with chocolate hot fudge sauce and nuts in syrup.
