Vegan Banana Splits

Plates of Vegan Banana Split topped with No Churn Chocolate Ice Cream

If you’re a quantity eater like me, volume means everything. The more (is always) the better.

Quantity eaters rarely take one bite of a dessert and say, “Oh my, that’s too rich for me to finish. I’ll pass. ” But rather, “Oh, man, that’s so good I need two spoons to eat it faster.”

And if this describes you, banana splits are likely your kind of dessert. So many layers of flavor, and more importantly, so much volume.

Scooping up No-Churn Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream for homemade banana splits

You guys know I couldn’t create No-Churn Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream and do nothing with it. That would be borderline sin. Plus, a vegan banana split was begging to be made. I’m kind of a chocolate-banana freak, so it was practically destiny.

It may look complex, but this banana split is as simple as they come!

Coconut Whip

That’s it! It takes 10 minutes to build and 5 minutes to devour. Trust me, I time these kinds of things.

What does it taste like? Glad you asked. It’s:

& Like a banana lover’s paradise

This is the perfect dessert for one or a large group because it’s so easy to multiply.

If it’s just you, add a couple scoops of ice cream to one banana and top as desired! If there’s a group, round up a mix of toppings so people can build their own. A banana split party, if you will. It’s what all the cool kids are doing these days.

    There is no hyperlink on the ingredients list to the “No Churn Chocolate Vegan…” ice cream recipe… I thought the name looked familiar, had to Google it to find it an be redirected back to MinimalistBaker.

  2. Lana says

    This looks TO DIE FOR!! So keen to try this, I am definitely a quantity eater… especially if it looks as tasty as that!!

  3. Amanda - A Cookie Named Desire says

    This is so amazing, it’s a little disgusting. I think I need two. One for me to eat and the other for me to look at and admire it’s beauty while I eat (and then I will obviously eat the second banana split while remembering how delicious the first was).

  4. Renee H. says

    Mmmmm! I just might have to make this, though I won’t want to share :) I would so make chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches with this, dipped in vegan dark chocolate…. (It’s It, anyone? Official food of San Francisco!).

  5. Brittany says

    In my post today I said I was all about the crunch… well I’m also all about the volume. The more food the better in my book! And this banana split — gah, it looks so amazing. I love everything about it. I want a bite right now.

  6. Emilie@TheCleverCarrot says

    Yes! It’s the return of the No Churn Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream! Love it. I haven’t had a banana split in years and you are enticing us all with this grown-up yet whimsical version. This SPEAKS volumes ;)

  7. Sarah | The Sugar Hit says

    364 days of the year I cannot stand bananas. And then on that 365th day, I eat a banana split and I’m CRAZY FOR THEM! This looks like the absolute platonic ideal of a split. Gorgeous photos and an epic, mouthwatering recipe as always!

      Ha! That’s funny. My sister doesn’t like bananas either and I just don’t get it! But a banana split? Who can resist?! Thanks for the kind words, Sarah!

  8. Joanna says

    Wow! That looks like the best banana split that I’ve seen in a long time. Thinking about it, it’s been a long time since we’ve made them around here, I think that is about to change!

  9. Liz @ Floating Kitchen says

    I’m with you. No dessert is ever too big! About a month ago at the restaurant where I work, a guest couldn’t finish their pots de creme – which is like 4 bites worth – and asked to box it up. I almost died. Seriously??

  10. Millie | Add A Little says

    Soooo tasty!! I love chocolate and bananas together – would it be outrageous to add some peanut butter too ;)

  11. Abbie @ Needs Salt says

    Holy. You blow my mind, Dana. You really do. These banana spits are everything any vegan missing sweet indulgences should adore. And those little wooden spoons! So cute. Where did you find them?
    Pinning this!

  12. Kelly says

    Yum!! I can never understand when people say things are too sweet! Desserts can never be too sweet in my opinion :)

    XO Kelly
