Banana splits

Banana splits




  • 4 bananas, sliced
  • Neapolitan ice cream
  • Chocolate topping
  • 16 marshmallows
  • 8 smarties or M&Ms
  • Nuts (optional)


For each serve, place a scoop of each of your favourite Neapolitan flavours in a bowl.

Arrange banana slices around ice cream.

Cut marshmallows in half and use four halves to make each flower (2 per serve).

Use a smartie to make the centre of the flower.

Smother with topping and nuts (optional).


  • I slice the bananas cross-ways; it is too frustrating trying to cut long strips of banana with a spoon!
  • I also made a version in a glass, banana split towers. Use a layer of each flavour ice cream, with banana slices and marshmallows in between. Work quickly!
  • For adults, use your favourite good-quality ice cream and a chocolate liqueur sauce — keep the marshmallow flowers!
