One of my favorite sweet treats are banana splits!
It’s hard to eat healthy when your weakness is sweets!
Sweets are a weakness a lot of us deal with. Having ice cream and cookies all day would be amazing if it didn’t mean all the calories.
Finding healthy alternatives that actually compare to the real thing and fill you up is the best.
One of my favorite recreations are Greek Yogurt Banana Splits.
How do you make a good banana split?
Banana splits are all about the toppings! The right toppings can make a banana split the most delicious treat.
Making it healthy is the tricky part.
Finding a good plain Greek or Whole Milk yogurt is a great way to start!
Look for the Real California Milk seal to find delicious plain greek yogurt made with Real California Milk!
Love supporting dairy’s in my home state of California since 99% are family owned, which means real food from real people. California milk is so healthy and a good source of important vitamins, minerals, and protein! Not to mention, California is a source for quality, sustainable dairy foods!
Healthy Banana Split Toppings
Your banana split can be more traditional with a cherry on top, but it really doesn’t have to be.
Add your favorite fruits, nuts, or both to the top! Here are some ideas for healthy toppings:
- Pineapple (Crushed, Diced, or Sliced)
- Sliced Bananas
- Apple Slices
- Mandarin Oranges
- Low Fat Whipped Cream
How do you make healthy banana splits?
You can use any of the ingredients above. Here are the ingredients I used.
- Sliced Strawberries
- Diced Pineapple
- Chopped Pecans
- California milk
- Prepare your fruits. Slice bananas in half long ways.
- Lay bananas flat on dish
- Use a melon baller or ice cream scooper to scoop Real California Milk greek yogurt on top of the bananas
- Scoop fruit on top of greek yogurt. I like to use 2 or 3 different fruits as toppings. (Strawberries, blueberries, and diced pineapple)
- Drizzle a line of honey across the top
- Top with your favorite nuts (I used chopped pecans)
These healthy banana splits are fun to share with family and friends or to make for a mid-morning snack!
