Ever had a banana split? Growing up my mom used to make them on Sunday’s during the summer. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to get through one without it melting all over, but that was may favorite part. Drinking the bottom of the bowl…okay now I realize why I gained weight…makes sense now that I’m reminiscing back on it. I wanted create a banana split that has healthy aspects and fewer calories at the same time.Most banana splits you order from restaurants or even make from home can be over 1000 calories alone! Even if you split the dessert you’d still be consuming a large amount of sugar and fat. \n \n Most of the calories in my banana split come from the healthy ingredients. The lowest calories come from the ice cream, cool whip and syrup. \n \n Ingredients:\n 1 Tsp Flax Seeds\n 1/2 Pineapple Slice\n 1 Tbsp No Sugar Added Strawberry Pie Filling\n 1 Tbsp Sliced Almonds\n 3 Walnut Halves\n 1 Tsp Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup\n 1 Tsp Sugar Free Caramel Syrup\n 1 Medium Banana\n 1/2 Cup Fat Free Reddi Whip\n 3 Maraschino Cherries\n 3 Flavors of Skinny Cow Ice Cream\n \n I had a hard time finding banana split bowls at the store so I bought a butter holder and flipped it upside down. Add 1/4 cup of Reddi Whip to the bottom of the bowl. Slice the banana in fourths and place it on top of reddi whip. \n \n Dice up the pineapple and lay it on top of the banana. Add another layer of Reddi whip on top of the pineapple. The idea of the dessert is to make it look much larger than it really is. By filling in the spaces with Reddi Whip it will help. \n \n I have a ice cream scooper that scoops 1/4 cups and that is what I used to scoop out the ice cream. I scooped 1/4 of each flavor and laid it on top of the Reddi Whip Layer.\n \n Next I drizzled 1 Tbsp of Chocolate Syrup and 1 Tbsp of Caramel syrup on the split with a spoon. After all the syrups were added I topped with with the almonds, walnuts and flax seeds. \n \n This dessert would be so much fun to set up for a party with the girls or a summer barbecue with friends or family. \n \n Calories: 305, Fat 8g, Carbs 45g, Fiber 14g, Sugars 20g, Protein 10g\n The calories seem pretty high BUT you have to remember it takes A LOT of ingredients to make a banana split and compared to a restaurant banana split you can save up to 800 calories. Also, the calories in my version are mostly coming from the nuts, and the banana. \n \n This would also be a great treat to split with someone! Hey that’s why they call it the banana split right? Okay maybe that’s not why, but it still works :)\n \n ADD TO PINTEREST HERE!
