For the last and final day of Kids Delight – Fruits all forms, I took the easy way out! I decided to finally make this Classic Banana Split that I have read so many times in Enid Blyton books. Growing up, I never had some of the experiences that kids in those books seem to have. And that always made me want to do it right away.
Of course I don’t think in ’80 or ’90 our market place had such well established parlors. It was only much later the Ice cream parlors became much more expanded and offered so many options. I still remember the Milky Way, an exclusive Ice Cream shop that opened up in early ’90s and it used to sell the ceramist ice creams.
We used to regularly visit and enjoyed their creations. Previous to this, we used to get standard ice cream flavours and you don’t have an option to mix and create. However even then I don’t think I would tried a banana split. Having decided on this, I alerted Konda that she will have to taste something new for me.
She was all ready and I decided I would get store bought flavours, instead of making it myself. Infact when I was making those 3 ingredient Ice Creams in single serves, my idea was to make this. However it got over before I could even plan. So I had to get some more.
Kids were so excited when they saw the ice creams and the boys even said they won’t mind trying out strawberry. Imagine that! Especially with banana in it. That single bowl was not enough and Konda gave up trying to get her share, boys enjoyed it so much that they didn’t realize that they completed all the ice cream scoops along with the banana added.
Knowing what all has gone in and they were actively involved in setting this up and clicking as well. So they knew it had chocolate overload anyways. If you love a sundae lot of toppings, then this is for you!
