Banana Split Lush

The good old fashioned banana split goes back decades. Likely you have had a banana split, but it is a more old fashioned dessert so maybe not! There are so many dessert choices these days, that it is entirely possible some have not had a banana split. Well, this dessert is ice-cream based. It is traditionally served in a long dish called a boat. Banana’s are cut in half lengthwise and laid into the dish. There are in fact a lot of variations, but the usual banana split is made with scoops of strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate ice cream served in a row between the the split banana. It is garnished with whipped cream, nuts, and maraschino cherry. Sounds mouth-watering dosen't it?

Now let's move onto some information about the banana split pie. Here’s a fact according to Wikipedia, “the banana split pie was created by Janet Winquest, a 16-year-old resident of Holdrege, Nebraska. In 1952, she won a $3,000 prize in Pillsbury's Grand National Recipe and Baking Contest for the recipe.”
