Banana Split Pie #OurFamilyTable

Graham cracker crust with layers of chocolate, pineapple, strawberry ice cream, whipped topping, drizzled with more chocolate and topped with a cherry.



Life doesn't get much simpler or more delicious than this Banana Split Pie.  Easy to put together ahead of time and pull out after a fun family dinner on a hot summer night.  Our daughter, Jessica, snuck back into the freezer for a second serving later that evening.

What is more perfect than an ice cream pie in August when the weather is so sweltering?  I guess you could just serve up ice cream and toppings or put some ice cream into a cone and your family and friends would be happy and content.  But you would not get the satisfaction of seeing the awe on their faces when you serve them up an Ice Cream Pie.


The best part is that they will never realize how very simple it was to take all of these store bought ingredients and turn them into this amazing dessert.

  1. Wendy, that really looks so good. My grandkids love anything with a cherry on top. I have to find that pineapple ice cream topping too.
