This is a classic, and it’s definitely worth mentioning. Of course, the fun part with banana splits is the toppings! You can go crazy adding the toppings. The good news is that if you make them at home, you don’t get charged by the topping.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 large banana
  • 3 scoops ice cream
  • 1 or 2 homemade ice cream sauces
  • Whipped cream
  • Nuts or other toppings


  1. Slice banana in half down the middle and place each half on the side of a large bowl, facing one another. Right in the middle, add a few scoops of ice cream.
  2. Top ice cream with one or two homemade sauces. I particularly like strawberry and chocolate. Top with lots of whipped cream, nuts, and any other toppings you can imagine!
