Everyone at one point feels the need to give in to that sweet tooth and dive into a yummy sweet dessert. Making a desert or ordering one, tends to be a thought battle and time-consuming affair. Alright, that’s what happened to me but I know I can’t be alone in what I went through… Right. So. In the middle of difficulty, I found opportunity to make a Banana Split recipe. I’ve always been fond of the Carnival Ice Cream shop in Colombo, the banana split is like a meal all on its own, loaded with yummy nuts and their homemade ice cream (which is always so nice and creamy) topped off with one or two cherries.
The best thing about this recipe is it’s so easy to make, the ingredients and the add-ons that you can combine with the recipe is endless. Chocolate mousse or chocolate ice cream with a drizzle of maple syrup is just going to give you that sugar rush you desire. Alternatively, you can keep things healthy and bring some fresh fruits, nuts, greek yogurt and with some nut butter keeping things interesting and energy filled. I could go on with endless combinations but ill just let you be adventurous and explore things.
Here is what I’ve added to my Banana Split
- One large banana
- 04 tbsp of curd
- 02 tbsp of creamy peanut butter – shop at PeasloveLk
- 02 fresh strawberries
- 01 tbsp of granola – shop at 3x3Granola
- 01 tbsp of melted dark chocolates
- 1/4 tsp of black chia seeds
- Mint leaves for garnishing
- Peel the banana and split it in half length-wise and place it on a plate or a bowl keeping little space in the middle.
- Add curd, yogurt, or ice cream in the middle. then add nut butter, strawberries, or any fresh fruits you’ve picked. Then sprinkle some crunchy and nutty granola for some crunch, drizzle melted dark chocolate on top and garnish with some mint leaves.
That’s it! your easy banana split dessert is done!
