Ready to run down to the ice cream parlor and order up a fruit-filled sundae? Save your energy, 'cause you'll be "bowled over" by the shape this one's in. Our Banana Split Bombe is a fun version of an all-American Classic.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 gallon Neapolitan ice cream
  • 1 (12 ounce) jar hot fudge sauce
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 1 (12 ounce) jar pineapple preserves
  • 2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed

What to Do

  1. Divide 3 flavors of ice cream and allow to soften slightly.
  2. Line a 3- to 4-quart bowl with plastic wrap. Spread chocolate ice cream in bottom of bowl. Top with a layer of fudge topping and 1 sliced banana. Spread strawberry ice cream over banana, then top with pineapple preserves and remaining sliced banana. Spread vanilla ice cream over top, then cover and freeze at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  3. Remove from freezer and invert onto a serving platter. Remove bowl and plastic wrap, then frost with whipped topping and return to freezer at least 1 hour, until topping has frozen. Serve or cover and keep frozen until ready to serve.


After slicing, top each serving with a cherry to give it a banana split finishing touch.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I just put this together in a smaller quart size bowl, a 1 1/2 quart bowl since there's only 2 of us now - the kids all flew the coup! I found out you can limit the portion sizes of the ice cream flavors as you go along, so this is manageable for a lesser size bowl. I also used what I had in the fridge a jar of pineapple topping (same as preserves), so its the same thing and is better to spread, also. I still had some Neopolitan ice cream left from the smaller portions, too. I'm anxious to see how this smaller portion turns out like the above recipe and will further comment on that. Happy Desert eating!

Sounds like just what I want yummy,easy and great to make ahead of the hard stuff !,,,

sounds so fancy with little work, that is what we call "bride's dessert" i will add strawberry topping for special occasions
