Girlfriends, in case you needed proof that eating healthy doesn't have to be boring and sad... this healthy banana split is IT!
YEs our pretty and clean eating approved banana split right here is the ultimate proof. See how gorgeous and mouth-watering it looks?
It just makes me wanna faceplant my computer's screen. And it's not just pretty looks, this healthy twist in the classic banana split dessert tastes great too!
You really don't have to give up on all the food you love to live a healthy lifestyle, you just need to adjust them a little bit to improve their nutritional profile.
And I'm here to help you do just that 🙂
Save those calories by making my Healthy Banana Split this summer!
See, a standard banana split can pack up to 1000 calories and 30 grams of fat. That's basically eating half or more of your daily calorie allowance for dessert. Yikes!
Not to mention that besides the banana, it's not really nutritious. Does it mean you should banish it altogether if you want to stay on track? Definitely NOT! Just make your own healthy version!
In this recipe, I'm using frozen Greek yogurt instead of ice cream to lower the fat and sugar content of out healthy banana split.
You can also use frozen yogurt if you have access to a good brand without too much sugar where you live. That would be even closer to the real deal!
The homemade clean eating chocolate sauce I found here is just the BOMB. Make a big batch, store it in the fridge and use it as a guilt-free topping over fruits, yogurt, ice cream, desserts...you name it!
