Appealing to the child in all of us, the banana split is one of the easiest ways to finish a meal. And good ingredients make it into a real treat.


    You Need

  • For each person, one ripe but not over ripe banana, two scoops of the best and strongest vanilla ice cream (I recommend Hill Stations Strong Vanilla Bean), whipped cream (optional), hot chocolat


In a shallow glass dish arrange the banana, split down the middle, and add the ice cream. Top with the whipped cream and, if using, pour the hot chocolate sauce over the top. Scatter the almonds on top of that.
