Surprisingly, the banana split was born in a pharmacy rather than an ice cream parlor back in 1904. It was the brainchild of David Evans Strickler, who was a 23-year-old pharmacist apprentice that enjoyed experimenting with new soda fountain sundaes in his free time. This dessert combo immediately caught like wildfire among the college crowd. It became so popular that they could charge customers double the price of a normal sundae, which was 5 cents at the time. Go bananas, because on August 25 we celebrate National Banana Split Day to pay homage to this unique and delightful dessert!

 In its traditional form, it is served in a long dish called a boat. A banana is cut in half lengthwise (hence the name) and laid in the dish. There are many variations, but the classic banana split is made with three scoops of ice cream (one each of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry) served between the split banana. A sauce or sauces (chocolate, strawberry, and caramel are traditional) are drizzled onto the ice cream, then crushed nuts (generally peanuts or walnuts is optional.) and whipped cream (optional), then topped with a maraschino cherry.

3
Drizzle the sauces and toppings on top of the ice cream. If you want to get really traditional, pour the chocolate sauce on top of the chocolate ice cream, the strawberry sauce on top of the strawberry, and the pineapple on top of the vanilla. Alternatively, you can pour chocolate sauce over each scoop of ice cream.
If you don't have any strawberry ice cream topping or syrup, you can use 2 tablespoons (25 grams) of diced strawberries instead.
If you don't have any pineapple ice cream topping or syrup, you can use 2 tablespoons (30 grams) of pineapple chunks instead. If you don't like pineapple, try 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) of caramel syrup instead.

4
Add a dollop of whipped cream. You can add a swirl of whipping cream over each ice cream scoop, of you can place it down the length of the banana split. The store-bought kind that comes in a can with a nozzle will be the easiest to use. You can also make your own, and pipe it on using a piping bag and a large, star-shaped tip.
