One of my favourite treats in the summer use to be ice cream. It was the best, so many possibilities. You could eat it just by itself, as a milkshake, or even as an extra to a slice of pie. One of my all-time favourites was making banana splits.
As I was scrolling through my Instagram newsfeed, there were some pictures of ice-cream and naturally I began to crave some myself. I decided I would try to make a healthy alternative for a banana split. Needless to say it turned out amazing, and could be debated that it was better than the real thing.
The Ultimate Banana Split
What your sexy self will need:
1. 1 banana
2. 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
3. 1 TBSP all natural peanut butter (smooth or creamy)
4. 1/4 cup strawberries
5. 3 drops of stevia
6. 1 TSP cinnamon
Peel a banana, cut it in half and place in a bowl. Heat the banana in the microwave for 30 seconds.
In a separate bowl, mix together the greek yogurt and stevia, and once the banana is finished in the microwave put the greek yogurt mixture down the centre of the split banana, and sprinkle the cinnamon on top.
Then drizzle the all natural peanut butter on top of the greek yogurt. It may help to put the peanut butter in the microwave for 30 seconds to make it easier for drizzling.
Finally, cut the tops off of the strawberries, wash them, and cut them into smaller chunks. Place them in a bowl and add a tiny bit of water to the bottom, and microwave for 30 seconds to a 1 minute. Once the strawberries are done in the microwave pour them over top of your banana split.
This is the perfect treat to satisfy cravings for something sweet and delicious, but doesn’t compromise your healthy eating. This delicious treat can be personalized by added whatever fruit you prefer such as, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries. If you like a bit of crunch, any type of nut can be added on top, or if you prefer chocolate, dark chocolate chips can be melted and drizzled on top as well.
Happy eating 🙂
