Banana Split

Every now and then, our oldest daughter and the dessert lover of the house, wants to enjoy a good portion of Banana Split. It's easy to make, you need few ingredients and it's yummy. At least, that's what she says. I'm not an ice cream lover (just don't talk about Ben & Jerry's, that's different), but if Lana wants banana split, banana split she will have.

To my surprise, I found so many different versions of banana split on the Internet. I was truly amazed! Those are not banana splits!!! Hello!! Who said you could put strawberry ice cream, pineapple topping, marshmallow, chocolate syrup or even maraschino cherries and chopped nuts on a banana split??? That's just not done! Never!

This is the only way to make a real Banana Split:

You cut a large banana lengthwise and lay it on a boat dish. In between the banana halves, you lay three royal scoops of vanilla ice cream. You make fresh chocolate sauce (who may possible have thought chocolate syrup is a decent alternative? Ugh!) to top your Banana Split with. There may be discussion about this, but you have the choice to finish it off with fresh whipped cream or not. But this is the one and only recipe.
