This lovely and delightful dessert has the classic flavor of a banana split. It's a cool, creamy treat with no last-minute fuss since you just pull it from the freezer. It always solicits praise from our big family. -Marye Franzen, Gothenburg, Nebraska

"Can you use half n half instead of evaporated milk? This looks like something that would be great in the summer and easy enough to make ahead of time."
