NATIONAL BANANA SPLIT DAY

Are you R E A D Y ?  Today, as in each year on August 25, it is National Banana Split Day!

Classically served in a long dish, called a boat, a banana is cut in half lengthwise and laid in the dish with with scoops of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream placed in between.  The strawberry ice cream is complimented with pineapple topping, chocolate syrup is poured on the vanilla ice cream and strawberry topping covers the chocolate ice cream.  Crushed nuts, whipped cream and maraschino cherries garnish the entire boat.  Today, there are many variations to the classic banana split.

SOUNDS DELICIOUS !!

The banana split was invented by a 23 year old apprentice pharmacist in Latrobe, Pennsylvania in 1904.  David Evans Strickler enjoyed inventing sundaes at the store’s soda fountain.  The first “banana-based triple ice cream sundae”  sold for 10 cents which was double the cost of all other sundaes.

Enjoy the following “tried and true” Banana Split Cheesecake recipe:

On this warm day, celebrate National Banana Split Day with a nice cold banana split boat and don’t forget the cherry on top!

My favorite use to be a banana split but have not had one in awhile, other than that I don't do sundaes.
