A healthy spin on a favorite dessert! You and your family won’t miss the extra calories and fat in these yummy Banana Split Yogurt Parfaits…promise!
A fun and healthier alternative to traditional banana splits! These parfaits are made with protein-packed yogurt and make for a satisfying dessert. Add granola for a yummy breakfast or a crunch for dessert.
These Individual Banana Split Sundaes are a great way for the kids to have a well-balanced sweet treat. The secret is to load up on the fruit!
Even though my family has dessert each night, I do try to make it somewhat healthy. We all have cravings now and then, but I definitely don’t want us to get too much sugar. So, making these parfaits gives us that opportunity! We substitute out the ice cream for lowfat yogurt, top with all our favorite fruits, add in a dash of protein thanks to the pistachios and get that sweet tooth craving satisfied with those mini chocolate chips and caramel sauce. YUM!
Nutrition Tip: The brown spots on a banana do not mean it’s going bad. In fact, it means the antioxidants within are becoming more potent.
