Banana Split Ice Box Cake

Angela Pitts


My family loved this recipe! My husband found this in a Taste Of Home magazine and we tweaked the recipe a little. The graham crackers get nice and soft as the dessert chills over night, it's just heavenly! :)

How to Make Banana Split Ice Box Cake


  1. In a large bowl, mix first 3 ingredients until blended; then fold in pineapple. Fill a pastry bag (or plastic Ziploc bag) with mixture and cut small hole in corner.
  2. On a flat serving plate, arrange four crackers in a rectangle. Pipe about 1 cup of mixture over crackers; top with 1/4 cup of banana slices. Repeat layers 5 times. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or all day).
  3. Before serving, top strawberries and banana slices (and walnuts if you prefer); and drizzle with chocolate syrup. It tastes just like a banana split!
  4. COMMENT: This is a VERY sweet dessert, so watch your portion sizes...even though you may be tempted to grab a large piece! I hope you enjoy.

    Another Option: Experiment by adding Blueberries to the topping (instead of bananas on the top layer)!
