Grilled Banana Split and a #Giveaway

When I was a little girl, I am told I used to eat ice cream with my Aunt Emily all the time. Although my memories of my youth are fuzzy, I do remember going to Dairy Queen for banana splits and blizzards with her in my teenage years. Like every visit she would make, I knew at some point we’d be making a trip to Dairy Queen.

Nowadays I don’t eat ice cream that much but when I do indulge, it’s banana splits all the way.

When Mazola Corn Oil contacted me about grilling with their product, I knew I wanted to give their grilled banana split recipe a try. Grilled fruit is absolutely the best. And pair it with ice cream! Perfection.

While most grills are too hot for olive oil to handle, corn oil has a high smoke point. This means it is ideal for marinades and protein on the grates, and won’t burn or leave a bad taste. More importantly, it’s a better-for-you way to grill.  A recent study found corn oil lowered LDL or “bad” cholesterol more than extra virgin olive oil.

The fruit doesn’t take long to grill and that little time on the fire brings out the sweetness of the fruit. Give it a try with your favorite fruits.

And to help you make some of your favorite grilled dishes this summer, Mazola Corn Oil is giving away the ultimate summer grilling kit to one reader! Mazola wants to be your summertime companion – perfect for spicy marinades and unique grilled recipes.

The fun pack of summer staples includes:
· Mazola Corn Oil
