Banana Split Recipe # 6
  • 1 banana
  • 3 scoops of ice cream (Any flavors - vanilla is traditional)
  • walnuts packed in a syrup (in a jar)
  • whipped cream
  • chocolate syrup
  • sprinkles
  • 2 red maraschino cherries
    You need some type of long individual "boat" type of dish for a nice presentation. Peel the banana and slice it lengthwise so you have two long halves. Lay the halves, flat side up, in the dish. I use put on three scoops of ice cream. Choose your own flavors but vanilla tends to be traditional. A vanilla and strawberry blend also works well. You also need "wet nuts". These are walnuts packed in a syrup (in a jar). They're sold in supermarkets with the cones, sprinkles and other ice cream fixings. Put a few spoonsful of nuts over the ice cream. Layer on the whipped cream. I use three mounds of whipped cream, one on top of each scoop of ice cream. You can also drizzle some chocolate syrup gently over the whipped cream as well as sprinkles. Top with some red maraschino cherries.
