National Banana Split Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Banana Split Day -Today is National Banana Split Day!

This decadent dessert has been around since the early 1900s and is the perfect treat to enjoy on a warm summer night.

The split is a variation of the traditional ice cream sundae and is usually served in a special dish called a banana boat.

It is easy to make: Split a banana and place a slice on either side of the boat. Add three scoops of ice cream in between the banana slices—one scoop each of chocolate, vanilla, strawberry.

Top the chocolate scoop with hot fudge, the vanilla with candied pineapple, and the strawberry with strawberry sauce.

Swirl whipped cream over each scoop. Finish it off with a sprinkle of crushed nuts and a few maraschino cherries.

To celebrate National Banana Split Day, set up a make-your-own banana split buffet and invite your friends over for an impromptu ice cream social!
