Grilled Banana Splits

Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On May 24, 2013 @ 5:00 pm In Dessert,Grill,Recipes | No Comments


(Turns out, it’s SUPER RIDICULOUSLY HARD to photograph ice cream on smoking hot banana slices!)

That’s right y’all…bananas grilled, then split-ified and topp-ified. Well, technically they are split then grilled…but I thought Split Grilled Bananas wouldn’t sit right. So we have Grilled Banana Splits. 

Here’s how it works.

  • Split the banana down the middle, lengthwise so that the open banana has flat sides.
  • Dip the bananas onto a plate of sugar. 
  • Place on the grill, in their peels, for a few minutes. 
  • Carefully transfer to bowl, top with ice cream and whatever toppings you like.
  • Race to eat it all before the ice cream melts!

We had a blast gobbling up these grilled banana splits! These are the perfect dessert for when you’ve got the grill going this summer!!!

Grilled Banana Splits

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 5 minutes

Cooking Time – 5 minutes


  • 4 bananas
  • About 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 4-8 scoops of ice cream
  • Toppings – whatever your favorites are!



  • Split the banana lengthwise, making flat pieces of the banana.
  • Spread the sugar out of a small plate and dip the banana side into the sugar, it should stick to the banana.
  • Grill the split bananas in their peels with the sugar side down for 3-4 minutes. Remove and top with ice cream and toppings.
  • Enjoy eating the grilled banana split on a warm summer night!

Hope everyone has a lovely Memorial Day weekend!
