Banana Split will help beat the summer heat

Hello, I’m Hannah Kauffman and I am your 2014-2015 Juniata County Alternate Dairy Princess. I have been involved in the Dairy Promotion Program for 11 years. It has taught me so many things and it is also very fun to be in. Two of my favorite promotions are being part of the different parades and making the giant ice cream sundae at the fair.

July is the middle of the summer and it gets pretty hot out there. Take a look at this delicious recipe on how to make a banana split.

Banana Split

1 banana, split lengthwise

1 scoop each of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream

Toppings: chocolate syrup, marshmallow fluff, strawberry syrup, whipped cream, chopped nuts, maraschino cherries

Place banana slices against sides of long dish or bowl, place scoops of ice cream in a row between the banana slices. Put the toppings on however you would like, then add whipped cream on top sprinkled with chopped nuts and topped off with cherries.
