  1. Place strawberries in a medium bowl. Slightly crush with a potato masher or fork. Stir in banana.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine undrained pineapple and Sugar Twin. Cook over medium heat until mixture starts to boil, stirring often. Pour hot pineapple mixture over strawberry mixture. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  3. Spoon 2 tablespoons strawberry mixture into 6 parfait glasses. Top each with 1/2 cup strawberry ice cream. Spoon scant 2 tablespoons strawberry mixture over each. Top each with 1 tablespoon Cool Whip Lite and garnish with half a maraschino cherry.
  4. Serve at once or freeze. If freezing, remove from freezer 10 minutes before serving.
  • To prevent banana from turning brown, mix with 1 teaspoon lemon juice or sprinkle with Fruit Fresh.
