Mock banana split

Ever find yourself wanting a little treat at night? Perhaps your kids come home, acting like they have not eaten in days? Or maybe you just want a guilt-free dessert? This recipe is simple, delicious and healthy. Dress these up by placing them in delicate ice cream bowls and watch how surprised your family and friends are when you tell them the only ingredient is... bananas! Though it tastes like ice cream, there is no added sugar or milk!

Mock banana splits

Serves 4


  • 4 to 6 bananas (frozen)
  • Sliced strawberries, oranges, kiwi, or any fruit you love!

  1. Keep bananas that are turning ripe (or fresh from the store -- your choice) in the freezer.
  2. Remove from freezer and note that the bananas will be darker in color, but this is fine!
  3. Remove peel and place bananas in food processor (or blender) and pulse.
  4. Serve with strawberries or raspberries (or any fruit you desire) and chocolate chips.
