Healthy Banana Split

FullSizeRender

You can have this for breakfast or dessert. It is much healthier than an actual banana split. I made the “soft serve ice cream” with frozen bananas, blueberries and blackberries. And then topped it with pistachios, puffed quinoa, more fruit and melted chocolate.

This recipe makes one large serving.

Ingredients: 

2 frozen bananas

¾ cup of frozen blueberries

¾ cup frozen blackberries

Milk, just enough to blend the frozen fruit

Toppings:

1 banana, sliced in two lengthwise

3 or 4 fresh cherries, pitted and sliced in half

A few fresh blueberries

2 tablespoons of chopped pistachios

2 tablespoons of puffed quinoa

2 tablespoons of toasted dried coconut

30grs of dark chocolate, chopped

1 teaspoon of coconut oil

Fresh mint leaves

 

Melt the chopped chocolate with the coconut oil in the microwave for 30 second intervals until it has completely melted, stirring in between.

Place the frozen banana, frozen blackberries and frozen blueberries in the blender. Blend until smooth, adding a bit of milk to get everything mixed.

Serve it on a big bowl. Add the sliced banana in the middle. Add the blueberries and cherries. Sprinkle the pistachios, quinoa and dried coconut. Drizzle some of the dark chocolate and finish it with a few mint leaves.  Eat right away.
