my healthy banana split

'A healthy banana split?' I hear you say! As I have slightly over indulged whilst on holiday, I thought I would try a healthier version of a banana split. It's something I have never made before, so I put it on my August bucket list as one of my things to do for this month.

I have to say I was really impressed with the results. It was delicious and I didn't feel I was missing out! It can be eaten for breakfast or as a dessert. I ate it as an afternoon snack in the garden.

This is the recipe in case you fancy making it.

1 banana
low fat Greek yoghurt
sugar, to sweeten (if needed)

Blend some of the strawberries and blueberries into a puree, leaving some aside for decoration.
Add a little sugar to sweeten if necessary and blend again.
Cut the banana in half and place on a plate.
Spread the puree over the banana.
Then spread over the Greek yoghurt.
Place the remaining berries over the top for decoration.

If you have any puree left over, it's great to have on porridge, yoghurt or fruit.

Voila! Enjoy all the gorgeous flavours without the naughty calories.
