No Bake Banana Split Pie

Now, another dessert coming right in time for Summer.. Who doesn’t love the Banana Split? Well… honestly, I don’t. I don’t like bananas and I’m not a huge fan of ice cream. But PLEASE don’t let that stop you from trying this amazing recipe I have found. Just because I don’t like bananas doesn’t mean that my family dislikes them too. And this No Bake Banana Split Pie was a huge hit in my house. My husband and our two kids absolutely loved this pie!

Since I don’t eat Banana Splits, I had to do some research on how the Banana Split became so popular. I had no idea that this widely loved dessert was created in Latrobe, Pennsylvania! And well most of you probably don’t know that I currently live in Pittsburgh, Pa and it’s not very far away from here. I also learned that it was created by a 23 year old named David Evans Strickler who was an apprentice pharmacist. He created the Banana Split in 1904 using the stores soda fountain, and it only cost 10 cents, twice the price of all other sundaes!!
