Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 bananas, sliced in half
    4 teaspoons caramel sauce
    2 tablespoons ground almonds or peanuts
    4 fresh cherries, stem and pit removed*
    4 teaspoons semisweet chocolate chips, melted
    4 wooden craft sticks or lollipop sticks

    *You could also use maraschino cherries.

Tips

Get creative. Use peanuts instead of almonds, top with a tablespoon of whipped cream or a spoon of crushed pineapple. With a dessert this low in calories, you have some room to customize it.


Directions

Line a small sheet pan with wax or parchment paper.

Press a stick into each banana half until it pokes through the other end, leaving 1-2 inches exposed at the bottom.
Spread one teaspoon caramel over each banana, then roll in the chopped almonds. Place one cherry on the top of each stick. Drizzle each banana with one teaspoon melted chocolate.
Freeze on the sheet pan. Serve immediately or place in a freezer bag to store them.

Serving Size: Makes 4 bananas on a stick

    Not my idea of a banana split. I make a real banana split for for about 150 calories. I use 1/2 banana, slice it into two long parts. I take 1/2 cup ice milk and divide it into two small scoops; put it between the banana slices. Top one scoop with 1 tsp sf choc. syrup and other w/ a mashed strawberr - 7/5/12

    Potassium is one extra nutrient I track, and while bananas generously provide it, I'm not that excited about eating bananas. This kills 2 birds with 2 stone: I can now eat my banana for the potassium, and have my evening snack in the bargain. - 6/29/12

    Disappointed when I read the recipe. The picture AND the treat are misleading when compared to the name of the treat. Where's the CHOCOLATE? It might well be tasty if billed as banana pop, banana on a stick, etc. For something called "banana split" it misses the boat completely! - 6/29/12
