#2 The Banana Split

#2 The Banana Split.

All-American Habits

The banana split is an ice cream-based dessert that can pretty much be found everywhere in the United States. This American classic was first created in 1904 in Latrobe, Pennsylvania

The banana split is made by taking a banana and splitting it in half lengthwise, then taking one scoop of chocolate ice cream, one scoop of vanilla ice cream and one scoop of strawberry ice cream and placing them in a bowl, situating the pieces of banana on either side.

Then, you take pineapples (crushed) and strawberries (sliced small) and sprinkle them over the top. Then you top it off with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, crushed nuts and sprinkles... and of course, you can't forget to place a cherry on top!
