  • How to prepare homemade banana split:

    1. To start we must prepare the ice cream. We peel the 400 grams of bananas and cut into thin slices, of similar thickness. We reserve 100 grams for the preparation of strawberry ice cream.
    2. The rest we will place in a bowl covering it with plastic wrap. The paper must be accommodated between each layer to prevent them from turning into a ball or sticking. We then put it in the freezer for at least 3 hours.
    3. We wash the strawberries very well and remove the sepal, which is the green part on top. Then We cut them into small pieces and store in another bowl with the 100 grams of bananas. We do the same process with the cling film and freeze for the same number of hours.
    4. We remove the first bowl of bananas from the freezer. We take 150 grams and grind them in a food processor or blender. The rest we save for the chocolate ice cream.
    5. We must grind it up quite a bit. It will cost a bit at first, but after a while the mixture will separate into lumps. Later everything will come together again in a homogeneous ice cream, which is what we are looking for.
    6. When the banana ice cream is ready we can flavor it if we wish so. It will be enough to add a pinch of salt and a little vanilla essence.
    7. We put this ice cream in a bowl and freeze it again for a few minutes.
    8. To prepare the strawberry ice cream we use the food processor again. We crush the strawberries with the 100 grams of banana until getting the same consistency as the previous ice cream. We reserve in the freezer.
    9. We prepare the chocolate ice cream grinding the other 150 grams of banana with the 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder. When we obtain the desired consistency, we freeze.
    10. Then we peel the other two bananas. We cut them in half and lengthwise. Then we place them on a plate with a scoop of ice cream of each flavor between the banana.
    11. On top we add a little yogurt, the fruit of our preference, the syrup, the cereals and the nuts. Banana Split fácil
