Travel back in time and relive those mouth-watering moments without the need to count calories!

The banana split – a decadent dessert that should never be forgotten!

Serves: 4

 Ingredients

 

To make the frozen yogurt:

500g full fat Greek yogurt

125g agave/maple syrup

 8-10 drops Vanilla FlavDrops

For the splits:

 4 bananas (cut horizontally)

✓ 250ml coconut cream (refrigerated for at least 1 hour)

Topping ideas:

✓ Drizzle Sugar-Free Syrup (Chocolate flavour)

✓ Handful fresh cherries

✓ Sprinkle Pumpkin Seeds

 

Method

 

#1 Firstly, make your frozen yogurt. Whisk up all frozen yogurt ingredients and place into an airtight container. Freeze for at least 3 hours, whisking up every hour or so to prevent ice crystals from forming.

#2 When ready to make your split, whip the coconut cream to a thick consistency. Drain any water from the chilled coconut cream and then tip the cream into a large mixing bowl. Using an electric whisk, whisk on a low speed for 1 minute, then turn the speed to high and whisk until stiff peaks form. You may need to move the whisk up and down to create air pockets.

#3 Assemble your split! Place banana halves into a bowl, add 3 scoops of your frozen yogurt, whipped coconut cream (pipe these on if you’re feeling fancy), sugar-free syrup, fresh cherries and a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds. Devour.
