Share this delicious banana split with your loved one or devour it all by yourself.  

NB: You will need bananas that have been frozen 24 hours in advance.

You will need:

  • Chocolate sauce – see recipe above
  • 2-4 scoops of vanilla banana ice cream – see recipe above
  • Cashew cream – see recipe here

You can be creative and add different flavors to your ice cream e.g. rose water, mint or orange oil. 

Use different fruits that are in season – raspberries, blueberries, etc.

You could use maple syrup instead of chocolate sauce – the combinations are endless.
