Dairy Queen Copycat Recipe
1/2 cup scoop vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup scoop chocolate ice cream
1/2 cup scoop strawberry ice cream
1 large ripe banana
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup (or hot fudge)
2 tablespoons strawberry ice cream topping (or fresh strawberries)
2 tablespoons crushed pineapple
Line up ice cream scoops next to each other in an oval deep dish or a banana boat. Cut the ends of the banana off (about 1/4 inch) while still in the peel. Slice in half longways. Pop each half of the banana out of the peel onto each side of the ice cream row, pressing down and in a little so it'll stay put.
Top the vanilla ice cream with the pineapple, the chocolate with the chocolate syrup and the strawberry with the strawberry sauce. Top each scoop with some whipped cream and a cherry for each.
