Have you ever been sad when looking at a banana split? I think not. Right now some of us are experiencing lots of bad weather as it may be hurricane season based on where you live. I know when it rains most people tend to want to cuddle under the covers with a good book, snacks and maybe a slice or two of pizza but maybe we can ditch the “unhealthy” and try something a bit more nourishing yet fun and flavorful. Besides eating healthy, let us say for instance there was a black out at your home due to the weather and you wanted a quick creamy snack to satisfy your sweet tooth craving and help pass the time of the blackout.

My Banana Split recipe will be just the thing in assisting in the snacking area. Here is my recipe for a healthier version of a banana split which you can, of course, add your own little twist on.

Let’s start with ingredients

First, we would need the obvious, Ice Cream! However, since we are going a bit more on the healthier side, how about Greek yogurt instead. For the other contents, you can add granola, raisins, diced pineapples, fat-free Whipped Cream, honey and of course, a banana. When making a banana split, you don’t have to go strictly by one standard recipe. Yes, there are key factors that make up this scrumptious dessert like ice cream, bananas, whipped cream and more. However, you can be creative, fun and just go with your feelings at that time.

If you feel for fresh strawberries, chocolate ice cream or no ice cream and maybe yogurt instead, with or without whipped cream and let’s say sprinkles, you can do that as well. It is all in the taste and whatever you think represents a banana split.


First, separate all ingredients in small bowls to make preparation easier.

Dice the pineapples into small squares if they are not already diced, Chop the raisins smaller to make the desert light and easy to eat and slice the banana thinly.

Take a small bowl or glass (preferably a bowl) and fill the bottom with yogurt.

Add 2 tablespoons of granola, 1 tablespoon of pineapple, 1 tablespoon of raisins and cover with yogurt.

For garnish, add another tablespoon of granola, whipped cream, a drizzle of honey and banana slices.

Bon Appétit!

This recipe is different from your traditional banana split because as we know, a traditional banana split consists of ice cream and lots more sweets to satisfy your sweet tooth. However, it’s just as or maybe even more delicious than the usual sweet treat. It’s also good for the kids if they love ice cream and you prefer they eat a more wholesome, nutritious snack. Now, who said eating clean can’t be fun?!

Hope you enjoyed the recipe.
