These healthier banana splits are made with 2 ingredient banana ice cream - frozen bananas and almond milk! Such a fun treat the whole family will love!
To make the banana ice cream, place the frozen bananas in a high powdered blender or food processor. Add the almond milk and blend until thick and creamy, like soft serve ice cream. You may need to stir it several times or use your blender's tamper to get things moving. The key is to add as little almond milk as possible to make it super thick and creamy.
To assemble the classic banana split, lay the split open banana on a plate, top with a few scoops of banana ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream, sliced bananas and strawberries, sprinkles, a couple of maraschino cherries, and a drizzle of melted dark chocolate!
To assemble the s'mores banana split, lay the split open banana on a plate, top with a few scoops of banana ice cream, a handful of crushed graham crackers, a few toasted marshmallows, a drizzle of dark chocolate, and another handful of crushed graham crackers.
*For the coconut whipped cream, I refrigerate a can of full fat coconut milk overnight. When ready to use, open the can and scoop out the very top, the thick coconut cream into a mixing bowl. Discard the water. Whip the coconut cream with electric beaters until it resembles whipped cream. Add a few tablespoons of powdered sugar and a ½ teaspoon or so of vanilla extract, or to taste. Whip again until combined. And voila, vegan whipped cream!
*For the toasted marshmallows, preheat your oven's broiler to high. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and place the marshmallow on the sheet. Place them under the broiler, watching very carefully. They will burn in an instant! Remove them when they look golden and toasted. This can take less than a minute, depending on your broiler. Don't walk away!
