Have you ever created a dish or dessert that looked totally different than how it tasted? This Banana Split Dessert is exactly that way. While the traditional treat is made with Ice Cream, Bananas, Strawberries, Pineapple and Chocolate topped with whip cream, nuts and cherry, this Banana Split Dessert has no ice cream but taste exactly, if not better, than the traditional treat you are familiar with.
You know me…I love easy desserts that look impressive! I’m all about keeping it simple for you!
The original recipe, that came from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook, was made in a 13 x 9 pan, but I adapted it a bit and served it in these little parfait glasses that I found at Walmart. The original recipe also did not call for strawberries, but what’s a Banana Split without strawberries.
Do you know the best way to purchase good strawberries?
First, turn the package over and make sure there are no bruised or damaged berries. Then give the package a good sniff, yep…smell the strawberries, if you can smell a good flavor then they are perfectly ripe for you to use.
