Weirdo Banana Split

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by KRMC1127

This is a great dessert when I have no ice cream in the house! It's considerably healthier than more traditional cakes and pastries served for dessert - trick your kids into a cold dessert they can eat with a spoon!

This was pretty dang good!! I was searching Zaar for a dessert for one person, and your recipe definitely fit all my needs, since I love banana splits, but was out of ice cream. After removing the banana/whipped cream from the freezer, I sprinkled it with some peanuts that I had smashed into bits, and added a squirt of caramel syrup. I didn't have any candy sprinkles, but the nuts worked out just fine. The peanut butter whipped cream was really good, and so was this dessert!! I think the flavored whipped cream would work on alot of other desserts, too. Thanks for satisfying my craving!! Teresa
