Ice Cream for Supper

We recently had family visit, and after one really hot day, the kids asked if we could have ice cream for supper day. We did, and it was fabulous!

Today is National Banana Split Day. Just in case you don’t know what this is, you take a peeled banana and slice it in half, lengthwise and place it in a bowl. Between the slices, you add three scoops of ice cream. Traditionally we’ve used vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry.

Next each scoop of ice cream gets a sauce. Chocolate, pineapple, and strawberry are the sauces traditionally added. To finish off this delicacy, add whipped cream and a cherry.

It’d be fun to hear your variations on the banana split. Or do you have a favorite place to go for this treat?

Today is another hot South Carolina August Day. August is probably why someone created Banana Split Day. I encourage you to have fun today and treat yourself to a banana split. Tag me on social media if you do.

  1. I love banana splits….without the banana! lol Seriously, ice cream is a favorite, but I don’t eat it as often as I used to. 😉


  2. Thinking I need to go make some banana splits with the boys now 🙂 And while we haven’t had ice cream for supper (yet!), we have done “Backwards Dinner” on select lazy weeknights, where everyone gets to eat dessert before dinner. Kind of a nice break in routine.
