Bye Bye Banana Split: Other Ice Cream Sundaes You Must Try on

Sundae recipes for your next ice cream party

A banana split is a staple treat in American society. It melts in your mouth the moment it hits your tongue with its creamy and flavorful goodness. In recent years, ice cream sundaes have taken on a whole new meaning. From loads of ice cream stacked together to crazy mixtures of salty snacks on top scoops of sweet ice cream, the sundae world has far exceeded the traditions and simplicity of the banana split days. If you’re looking to change it up, try one of these delectable ice cream sundaes.

Strawberry shortbread sundae

If strawberries are one of your favorite fruits, this sundae is a must-try. Mix fresh strawberries, strawberry ice cream, yellow cake, and graham cracker crust and top it with whipped cream, jam and maybe even some crumbled cookies. For an extra taste of sugary goodness, microwave the strawberry jam. If you don’t want to make it yourself, Coldstone Creamery’s Who You Callin Shortcake?™ is a fan favorite that truly hits the spot.

Cookie lover’s sundae

Caramel is one of the most beautiful ingredients bestowed on desserts. Melt it in the microwave and drizzle it between layers of cookie dough and ice cream, warm fudge, and crumbled Oreos. If you’re not a big Oreo fan, try Reese’s or chocolate chip cookies.

Fudge truffle ice cream sundae

What’s tastier than when fudge truffle ice cream meets red velvet cake? Add those, with chocolate shavings and rich fudge ganache and you have a warm, decadent, and mouthwatering sundae. Want to share with the whole family? Coldstone Creamery prepares this fudge truffle sundae in made-to-order pints to keep in the refrigerator for visitors or family members to try.

S’mores sundae

You don’t need a fireplace to enjoy this tasty treat. The trick is in the alternations. Move from vanilla ice cream, marshmallow fluff, graham cracker crumbs, marshmallows and fudge, and repeat. Keep alternating until you have a stacked sundae of delicious goodness.

Pro Tip: Before you start building the sundae, drizzle the glass with fudge sauce warmed up in the microwave.

Banana split done right

While the traditional banana split might no longer hold the stature it once did, its presence can still be found in other sundae concoctions. Coldstone Creamery mixes the standard ice cream, banana, whipped cream and fudge staples with almonds and strawberries for what’s referred to as the Banana Split Decision. By taking the standard American classic of a banana split and adding some other favorites, customers can enjoy their banana split with extra pizzazz.

While banana sundaes will always be enjoyable, they’re even tastier when you have the opportunity to be creative.
