Banana Split Pie: A No Bake Dessert Recipe
I am an avid ice cream lover; a lifetime devotee and nothing quite says summer like ice cream. It’s a sure way to beat the heat while enjoying a nice treat. This Banana Split Pie turns the classic banana split into a scrumptious frozen pie! It’s fun for any summer celebration, be it an impromptu dinner with friends or a special birthday party. Everyone lights up when you bring out a pie covered in sprinkles, hot fudge, caramel, and cherries. You can even let the kids join in by letting them add on all their favorite sundae toppings.
The recipe calls for the typical banana split characters plus the makings of a waffle cone crust that leaves you licking your fork. Feel free to switch out plain old vanilla for your favorite flavor, or layer it with 2 flavors for extra pizzaz! All of the toppings can be switched up too, of course. Get creative and make it your own. You really can’t go wrong with an ice cream pie y’all! Now get to making your own!
Home Chef Tip: It can take some major patience to wait for the ice cream to melt to the right consistency for pouring into the pie crust. If you're in a hurry, place the whole quart of ice cream in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between. It shouldn't take more a minute or two to zap it. You don't exactly want it all to be soup, but it needs to be pourable to ensure an even surface.
