Sometimes we’ll have banana splits for dessert or sometimes for a treat on a warm day. The top picture shows our son’s banana split. He likes it loaded with everything, even sprinkles. The bottom picture shows my husband’s which has very little ice cream and mostly fruit. I fix mine halfway in between the two with more ice cream but just a little whipped cream (lite). A lot of times we’ll have both vanilla and chocolate ice cream, but this time we were out of the chocolate. Adding chocolate syrup makes up for not having the chocolate ice cream.
Notice all the fresh fruit. That makes this dessert a lot healthier than having cake and ice cream! Use low-fat ice cream and skip the whipped cream to make a great tasting low-fat dessert.
