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! :)

16 oz
whipped cream topping, thawed
8 oz
sour cream
1 pkg
3.4 oz instant vanilla pudding mix
1 can(s)
8 oz crushed pineapple, drained
whole graham crackers
2 medium
bananas, sliced (rounds)


chocolate syrup
1 pt
halved fresh strawberries
additional banana slices
1/2 small
jar walnuts in syrup (optional)


1In 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.
2On 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).
3Before serving, top strawberries and banana slices (and walnuts if you prefer); and drizzle with chocolate syrup. It tastes just like a banana split!
4COMMENT: 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)!
