Kids in the Kitchen – Banana Split

Welcome to this weeks Kids In the Kitchen. We’ve had a lovely foodie weekend after I was chosen as a Morrison’s Mum and I received £80 in vouchers for my weekend shopping. I’ll be writing more about that soon but for the kids I bought them some nice things to make their own banana splits. You can see how they got on later in this post.

First I like to thank those who contributed to Kids in the Kitchen last week.
First up was Mummy Zen and daughter made Beer Bread. I really really have to try this, bread that can be made quickly, sounds brilliant. The only other bread I know that can be made quickly is soda bread and I’m not a fan of that.
Then over on The Beesley Buzz, the lovely Miss T makes Apricot Bread Pudding. I’ve been craving bread pudding ever since, yum yum.
Finally, over on The Recipe Source we have gluten free biscuits, baked in a challenge to see if they can compare with their regular recipe for allergy free shortbread biscuits.
Thank you all for joining in and inspiring me, and hopefully my readers too.
Do come and join in if you can, all kids cooking posts are welcome, old or new.

Banana Splits

These were inspired by The Beesley Buzz who had a lot of banana recipes over the last few weeks. When I saw them I thought my littlies would love to make them, so we had to give them a try.


the main ingredients are bananas and ice cream. Then you can add any sorts of topping that you wish, we used, sprinkles, mini chocolate beans, mini marshmallows and strawberry sauce.

I let the kids loose helping themselves to banana slices, ice cream and whatever toppings they wished. They had loads of fun.

    I haven't had a banana split for years! These ones looks great – maybe I'll have to have a blow out at the weekend and make some for us!

    Mmm. I always forget how good banana splits are. A great think to make with the kids, I will give this a go soon, partly in the hope of getting my younger 2 to ever eat a banana again!

    BRILLIANT banana splits! Love them. We've been so inspired by your linky that it has really helped us remember to get the kids involved in the kitchen each week. Thank you so much for doing it week in, week out. Look forward to seeing your #morrisonsmum stuff too! xxx
