Classic Old Fashioned Soda Fountain Banana Split

A classic, old fashioned soda fountain banana split, made with a banana, pineapple, strawberry and chocolate syrup toppings, one scoop each of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream, whipped topping, chopped nuts and a cherry garnish.

I pondered a bit on what kind of creative and unusual foodie banana split I could come up with, but you know what? To me, there is really only one banana split. A classic, old fashioned, soda fountain banana split. Let's face it, I'm a simple, country cook and no foodie gourmet, so what else would you expect from Deep South Dish?

A fresh banana, split lengthwise, vanilla, strawberry and chocolate ice cream nestled between the slices, and finished with pineapple topping, strawberry topping, and chocolate syrup, whipped cream, a sprinkle of chopped nuts and of course, at least one cherry on top. It is, at least in my eyes, the perfect, ultimate banana split.


Classic Old Fashioned Soda Fountain Banana Split
From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish

  • 1 banana, split lengthwise
  • 1 scoop each of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream
  • Pineapple topping
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Strawberry topping
  • Whipped topping, like ReddiWip
  • Finely chopped nuts
  • Maraschino cherries, with the stem

Cut the banana in half, lengthwise. In an oblong dish or banana split boat, place the banana slices on the outside edges.  Place a scoop of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream in between the banana slices. Top the vanilla ice cream with the pineapple topping; the chocolate ice cream with the chocolate syrup, and the strawberry ice cream with the strawberry topping.  Squirt a dollop of whipped cream on top of each ice cream scoop, sprinkle nuts on top and place one cherry on the top of the center ice cream, or one cherry on each scoop!

Serve immediately.
