Banana Split: The All-American Ice Cream-Based Dessert

Banana Split History At A Glance


Everyone can agree that Banana Splits are an American classic. From being Walgreen’s signature dessert in the mid 1900s to being the reason that there is an annual Great American Banana Split Festival in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, this delicious dessert has been enjoyed for generations. It even gained so much national notoriety that August 25th was deemed National Banana Split Day. Banana Splits are a staple of Summer and contain the perfect assortment of ingredients to keep you cool under the hot sun. The traditional Banana split blends together golden bananas, rich ice cream, fluffy whipped cream, juicy cherries, sweet strawberries, and smooth hot fudge, which offers a cornucopia of flavors in every bite.

Are Banana Splits Healthy?


Unfortunately, sometimes foods that contain great flavor also come with great drawbacks. Many of the Banana Split’s mouth-watering ingredients are high in sugar and over processed. Eating this type of dessert too often can cause negative health effects, such as weight gain, blood sugar spikes, tooth decay, and migraines, just to name a few. In a world where health and wellness are taken very seriously, it can make enjoying this tasty treat on a regular basis very difficult. Many people and companies have tried to create alternative ingredients/recipes to make this dessert as healthy as possible, but nothing in the market has quite done the trick.




The Sundae Snack You Crave Without The Ice Cream Calories
