Healthy Banana Split

People keep asking me how I stay that skinny while eating all the food I post here. Well, it’s easy … Balance is the key! I never start my day with sugar loaded cereal or fatty things, I always have oatmeal! I never have a heavy lunch, either I have another oatmeal or a protein packed salad. This way I can absolutely afford cake time in the afternoon, a nice dinner and a dessert. While my cake time is usually super decadent I try to make my nighttime dessert as healthy as possible. This Healthy Banana Split is one of those desserts!
Good fats from the banana and peanut butter and low in carbs, yet super filling and satisfying. It tastes so decadent, you will not feel like you eat something that is good for you! Since a normal banana split can have up to 1000 calories each serving, you might wanna do the swap to this version too :)

  1. I love banana splits and use yogurt instead of ice cream sometimes. I can no longer eat peanut butter due to allergies but could use sun or wow butter instead. Great food choices and yes I agree, balance is key.
    Thanks for adding my yummy cake.

  2. I am going to have to show this to my daughter. She loves things like this. We often make a banana boat – banana, peanut butter, chocolate chips or carob chips and coconut! She loves them and I know she will love these!

  3. Looks great! I would probably switch it up just a little and use real homemade whipping cream though. Would go great with a movie night!

  4. I like the peanut butter twist. I can’t eat bananas because they give me wicked heartburn in my old age, but I would love to make this for my boys.

  5. You had me with the title. 😉 I am always looking for fun, flavorful, but most importantly HEALTHY dessert alternatives. This looks incredible! And I totally agree that starting out the day with a healthy meal like oatmeal is a great key to staying thin and in shape.

  16. That healthy banana split looks awesome! I would skip the peanut butter, though, since I’m not crazy about it. I would probably add some unsalted peanuts to it, though, instead. I love the idea of the of the healthy whipped cream!
