"A fun and easy dessert for both adults and kids. To make it a little more of an 'adult dessert', try adding a capful of rum… oh so yummy!"

"Awesome snack for someone on a diet! Very easy to make. Next time I might try a little peanut butter in the banana boat as well."

"I was first introduced to this as a 12 year old camping with my Pioneer Girls Group and it became a camping must have. Our kids always made sure we packed the banana boat ingredients before we left for camping. Now they are on their own and continue this camping tradition with their friends and families."
