A Healthier Banana Split for Kids….and Adults

I wasn’t kidding when I told you my pregnancy cravings have been strong- my first three blog posts have been about desserts! As one of my “side-jobs”, I teach a cooking class for children at the local grocery store once per month. I have been teaching the class for over two years now and I have a multitude of recipes that I plan to share to help get your kids into the kitchen and tasting and trying delicious recipes.

For February’s class, we made a healthier banana split for our dessert. What I love about this recipe is that it is incredibly easy. So easy, that I am going to be making it with my daughter’s preschool class that is full of 2-4 year olds later this week.

All you need:

  • Banana, cut length wise
  • Whipped topping such as Reddi-Whip
  • Strawberries, chopped
  • Blueberries
  • Sprinkles
  • Other toppings: chopped nuts, shredded coconut, raspberries, and chocolate/caramel syrup

All you do:

  • Place banana on plate or in a bowl.
  • Scoop or spray whipped topping between the two banana slices.
  • Place desired toppings on dessert and serve immediately!

Edited to add pictures from my daughter’s class today!  We also made a fruit smoothie with avocado- another hit!
