INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITUTIONS
This no-bake banana split dessert is perfect for a healthy dessert or guilt free treat! The banana is the base of this dessert. Its naturally gluten free and vegan of course! Think of it like a banana split…without the ice cream and all of the toppings.
This banana split dessert recipe uses chocolate hummus because its sweet, chocolate flavored and vegan. Chocolate hummus is low in saturated fat. Make sure to check the label of the chocolate hummus you buy to make sure it is vegan (most are but please check)! If you dont want to use chocolate hummus for your banana split, you can sub peanut butter, nut butter, tahini, chickpea butter, granola butter, or any spread similar to peanut butter. Chocolate hummus has less fat in it than peanut butter or nut butters but they do make good substitutes.
Granola, Strawberries and blueberries
This no-bake dessert recipe uses gluten free granola and fruit as toppings. These toppings make this dessert a healthy option. Other toppings substitutions are nuts, any type of seeds or chocolate. Feel free to make this banana split your own! You can use any topping you would put on top of a regular ice cream banana split.
TASTE & TEXTURE
This is a healthier version of a traditional banana split. It is dairy free since there is no ice cream! Its served best at room temperature or even warmed up.
