How to Make a Banana Split. Make sure you’re pretty hungry when you attempt to conquer this version of a classic treat. Serves one (or two if you share).

Things You'll Need

Peel a banana and cut it in half lengthwise.

Put the two halves in a long, skinny ice cream bowl.

Place three scoops of ice cream on top of the banana: one chocolate, one vanilla and one strawberry.

Pour hot fudge over the chocolate ice cream.

Pour pineapple syrup over the vanilla ice cream.

Pour strawberry syrup over the strawberry ice cream.

Top with whipped cream, a few cherries and nuts.


  • For low-fat sundaes, use frozen yogurt or reduced-fat ice cream.

  • Add caramel to your sundae for a special treat.

  • Go wild and put the strawberry sauce on the chocolate ice cream and the hot fudge on the strawberry ice cream. You can vary the ice cream and sauce flavors as you wish, of course.
