You can pick one up from your local Walmart in the freezer section for around $4.54 for the family size (1lb). That is what I did to make this easy but impressive dessert.

I took the idea of a banana split but made it a little more easy to serve. There will be no melty ice cream with these banana splits. I swapped out the ice cream for cubes of Sara Lee® Pound Cake and made pretty layered mini trifles.

The base is a Sara Lee® Pound Cake layered with chocolate mousse, sliced strawberries and bananas, plus crushed pineapple. All of those tasty flavors found in a banana split. And no banana split would be complete without a dollop of whipped cream with a cherry on top!
