A sensational frozen delight. Reminiscent of a banana split without the chocolate. The family's favorite - inspired by my beautiful godmother Antoinette!

This is fabulous! I did tweak the recipe a little, however. I used Splenda instead of sugar and used the low fat cream cheese and light whipped topping. Was so decadent. I also spooned chocolate sauce over each serving and topped with toasted pecans, a dollop of whipped topping and topped with a marachino cherry. Was a dessert for my Mom's birthday party (made two dishes), wonderful for a crowd instead of banana splits! Everyone loved it Read More

My husband is the biggest ice cream fanatic i know and he loved this. I guess it's a good somewhat healthier substitute. Personally I didn't care for it too much. Read More

Made this the other night had some tonight and it is delicious. Made half of the recipe and used an 8 by 8-inch glass dish. (If anyone wants to know the drained weight of 1/2 of a 20-oz. can of Dole pineapple is 5-1/2 oz.) I used fresh (slightly sweetened) strawberries. The pineapple and banana became kind of mushy so next time I will try pineapple tidbits and only coarsely chunk the banana for a better texture. Also I would add the fruits directly to the creamed mixture gently mix this and then gently fold in the whipped topping (one less dirty bowl). DO add some slivered almonds or chopped pecans over the top. YUMMY. Read More

This is very very good. Next time I make this however I will see how it fits into two 8"x8" so I can keep one in freezer. I wasn't certain if it was to go back into freezer again or not but family liked it better after it thawed completely and strawberries had more flavor than when frozen. Funniest thing was when I came into room and found my teenage daughter licking very last remains out of the dish. She was embarrassed but we almost rolled on the floor laughing. Read More

REFRESHING! We really loved this dessert! Easy to make and has a wonderful light & fluffy texture. The fact that it's frozen makes it a lot like ice cream (except better)! Followed the recipe exactly and wouldn't change a thing! I used 2 bread loaf pans and 2 large custard cups (didn't have enough for a 3rd loaf pan). Definitely a repeat! A nice Spring-Summer dessert for those warm evenings! Read More

This was a wonderful recipe. I froze it in a bread loaf pan, so it was really easy to cut and present the frozen squares. I also 86ed the pineapple and added frozen raspberries. Very good! Read More

Mmmm. Company loved this treat. Really you should set it out for a while before serving. I thought that because there is a lot of whipped cream in it it shouldn't freeze too hard (whipped cream doesn't freeze solid) but it does. Probably because of all the fruit and the cream cheese it 'bonds' together and makes it very hard. So thaw a bit before serving. Very tasty! Read More

I brought this to a company function and everyone loved it. Several people asked for the recipe. I tweaked it a little by using strawberry Cool Whip since it was on hand when I bought it...delicious! Read More
