Make pineapple sauce: Bring all ingredients and 1/3 cup water to boil over medium-high heat, stirring. Simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes, until thickened. Pulse in a food processor until chunky. Pour into a bowl; cool.

Make strawberry sauce: Cook all ingredients in 1/4 cup water over medium heat, stirring, until strawberries begin to break up, 10 minutes. Pour into a bowl; cool.

Assemble splits: Divide bananas, ice cream and sauces among dishes; top with whipped cream and cherries.
