    Ice cream expert Olivia Everson share her tips to make the perfect, traditional banana split.

    Olivia Everson: Right now I am going to show you how to make an Alpine Banana Split. The first thing you are going to do is you cut off the ends of the banana. So it can fit perfectly in your bowl. Then you are going to turn the banana upside down, and peel off the back of the banana, then you are going to cut it right down in the middle, you are going to flip it upside down into your bowl, and carefully lift off the banana peel. Next, we are going to take the ice cream. Now it shows, Swiss Chocolate Ice Cream, scoop that in. Take the sauce, you can use any sauce of your choice, such as Hot Fudge, Chocolate Sauce or Butterscotch, I am just going to sprinkle this on all over. Next, sprinkle on our almonds all over, and we are going to do two circles of whipped cream on each scoop of ice cream. Nice and around. We want them even, and we are going to take a cherry, just going to pop it right in the middle, and you always want to pick cherries that have a stem, to look nicer, perfect! And that's how you make an Alpine Banana Split.
