Okay, the truth is I’ve never been a fan of banana splits, but this turned out to be one of the best recipes I’ve never created. Plus, it takes less than 5 minutes to throw together and is full of nutrition.
We all know banana splits are typically loaded with sugar from ice cream, whipped cream, sprinkles, and whatnot, but fear not! This version is a total game-changer.

This banana split requires just a handful of ingredients, and chances are you already have them in your kitchen. No need for a grocery run – simply grab these few ingredients and let the magic unfold…
When it comes to selecting the star of our banana split show, I opt for an underripe banana. Surprisingly, this choice offers not only a different flavor and texture but also some nutritional advantages. Underripe bananas are slightly firmer, less sweet, and have a subtle tang that adds a delightful twist to our recipe. But there’s more to it than just taste.
Underripe bananas contain more resistant starch, a type of dietary fiber that is beneficial for our digestive system. This fiber helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes a feeling of fullness, and supports healthy gut bacteria. Additionally, underripe bananas are lower in sugar compared to their riper counterparts, making them a great choice for those mindful of their sugar intake.
