INGREDIENTS
For the Graham Cracker Crust
  • 1½ cups fine graham cracker crumbs (about 1 sleeve)
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 T sugar
For the Pie Filling
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
  • 5 bananas, mashed
Additional Toppings
  • ½ pound of strawberries, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • ¼ cup crushed pineapple (canned is fine)
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Whipped cream
  • Maraschino cherries
  • An additional banana, sliced
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Start by adding your strawberries and 2 teaspoons of sugar to a bowl. Stir to combine, and refrigerate. This will give them a chance to juice up a bit.
Graham Cracker Crust
  1. In a mixing bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs and sugar.
  2. Add butter to the graham crackers and stir until coated.
  3. Spread mixture evenly in a 9-inch pie pan. Use a flat bottom glass to flatten the crust.
  4. Bake in a 375° oven for 5-7 minutes. Allow to cool completely before adding filling. You can stick it in the refrigerator to speed it up a bit.
Banana Swirled Ice Cream Pie Filling
  1. Mash 5 bananas in a mixing bowl. Add ice cream and gently fold in the bananas. You want it swirled, not fully incorporated so be gentle!
To Assemble Banana Split Ice Cream Pie
  1. Add the banana swirled ice cream mixture to the pie pan with the graham cracker crust. Spread evenly and return to the freezer until hardened.
  2. Just before serving, remove pie from the freezer.
  3. Add your pineapple in the middle of the pie. Then a circle of the juiced strawberries around the pineapple. Then the sliced banana around the outside of the pie.
  4. Drizzle chocolate sauce over the pie. Add whipped cream and cherries. Serve cold.
