When I was a kid, there was nothing better than a banana split or a peanut buster parfait from good ol’ Dairy Queen.

What can I say? I was a girl with simple tastes.

So imagine my surprise when I ordered a banana split to share with the hubby in L.A. this past weekend and THIS is what showed up.

Yeah, The Ivy knows how to rock a banana split and still make it seem healthy somehow.

NOT PICTURED: Little ramekins of whipped cream, hot fudge, hot caramel and sugared peanuts that we covered all the fruit and ice cream with immediately after snapping this pic.

For the record, we almost considered ordering our own desserts because we both have a sweet tooth. Guess it’s a good thing we didn’t huh?
