Banana Split on a Stick

Banana Split on a Stick
In This Article

This 200-calorie treat includes all the flavors of the indulgent childhood ice cream sundae without the fat and sugar. Homemade magic shell chocolate coating causes the dried fruit and peanuts to stick securely to the bananas. Pick large, straight bananas for easier skewering. Store in the freezer or in the refrigerator if you have cold-sensitive teeth.

RD Tip

Instead of looking at dessert as an indulgence, use it as another tool in your arsenal to help you reach your health goals. By making a recipe like this one, you make dessert functional by adding an extra serving of fruit to your day. This gives you beneficial nutrients like fiber, potassium, vitamin C and antioxidants.
