Grilled bananas take an already amazing fruit to a whole other level. Each tender bite is flavored with banana pudding-flavored ice cream, caramel sauce, and chocolate sauce. It’s made even more perfect with grilled vanilla wafers!



  • 4 large, ripe bananas
  • 1 cup vanilla wafers (about 1 1/2 oz.)
  • 3 cups banana pudding-flavored ice cream
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons bottled caramel sauce
  • 3 tablespoons bottled chocolate sauce
  • 4 maraschino cherries



  1. Preheat your Z Grills pellet grill to 400 to 450 °F.
  2. Make a long cut through the skin on the concave side of each banana, and pull the peel apart slightly.
  3. Place the bananas in a grill basket, cut-side up. Grill, uncovered, until banana is warmed through and the peel is mostly black, about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove bananas from the basket and set them aside. Add vanilla wafers to the basket, and grill until cookies get slightly charred, about 1 minute.
  5. Divide ice cream evenly among 4 bowls. Peel bananas, and cut each diagonally into 5 pieces. Top the ice cream with bananas, whipped topping, caramel sauce, and chocolate sauce. Coarsely break up vanilla wafers, and sprinkle over bowls. Top with cherries.
