Needless to say, my intense love of food is only healthy in moderation! :) I love the sugar-filled-calorie-overloaded-fat-from-heaven-oh-my-goodness-that's-not-good-for-you food just as much as the next person. But I choose to eat more fruits, veggies, and wholesome foods that fuel my body (at least I try). The other stuff I still indulge in but in moderation. So when I'm able to create a healthy alternative to one of those delicious foods that I crave way too often, I get super excited! My taste buds don't know the difference. So indulge, I will. And I won't even feel bad about it!
So today, I give you a healthier, granola-topped version of the traditional Banana Split. We're swapping out ice cream for protein-rich Greek yogurt, and topping this bad boy with our organic-nut-filled Goin' Nuts granola, melted dark chocolate, and sprinkles. I won't make you wait a second longer!
((cue the drool!))
Banana Split: A Healthier Alternative
1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
2 tbsp dark chocolate
Sprinkles, optional but highly encouraged!
1. Cut banana in half (you should have 2 quarters of a whole banana) and place in bowl.
2. Top with yogurt and Goin' Nuts granola.
3. Melt chocolate in microwave or double boiler over low heat. If using a microwave, warm chocolate for 5 seconds at a time, until melted. You do not want to overheat or the chocolate will become hard and dry! Drizzle over your sundae immediately (before the chocolate has a chance to harden)!!
4. Finish with the sprinkles!
5. Spoons up, mi amores!
I hope you love it! Let me know if you give it a try. I'd love to hear how it turns out! And you can visit our ONLINE STORE to purchase our Goin' Nuts granola. When you do, you'll be giving one meal to a person in need for each bag you purchase! Thank you :)
