Banana Split Icebox Cake
This Banana Split Icebox Cake is a blend of some of my favorite fruity flavors! Banana, pineapple, strawberry and cherry all make an appearance and are topped with chocolate and caramel sauce! No bake, easy to make banana split heaven!
No bake desserts like this one are great right now, since it’s getting so darn hot. Our upstairs bedroom has been heating up during the day recently and it hasn’t been so good.
We need to get someone out to service the air conditioning, but can’t seem to get on it. Instead, we bought fans.
The hubs and I have been talking about getting fans for forever, even before the bedroom started getting warm. But Lowes had a 20% off deal over the weekend, so we jumped on it.
Of course once we had the fans, the hubs wouldn’t rest until they were installed. So Sunday night at 10:30 p.m. he decides we need to install the one in our room. The other one was done the next day.
It was our first time installing fans and I got the job of assistant. Since it was dark out at that point and the power in the room had to be off for the installation, that meant holding a flashlight, reading instructions and handing the hubs things while he was on the ladder installing things.
In a moment of waiting, I of course checked instagram. What else would I do with a free 30 seconds?
The hubs wasn’t really a fan and gave me his disapproving look, but instead of saying something negative he smiled, in a joking way, and said “I love you.”
It was quite effective.
I got what he was saying, laughed and didn’t look at the phone again. The last few days saying “I love you” instead of how annoyed we are has been our thing. It’s been pretty effective at making us laugh and even more effective at accomplishing…whatever we are trying to accomplish.
Fortuantely both fans got installed without too much difficulty. And they really do look great and help a lot with keeping the air circulating and the rooms cooler. I’m a fan…no pun intended. 😉
I’m a dork, I know.
But back to the icebox cake.
It actually reminds me a lot in flavor of the Banana Split Blizzard from Dairy Queen. It’s my fave. I very rarely get another flavor unless it’s some special flavor that I’m curious to try, or I’m craving cookie dough. I can’t remember not loving it.
This icebox cake is the same way. It’s the perfect summer dessert. I love the flavors and how it all comes together so well, I can’t imagine not loving it. I know it will be that way for you too. 🙂
