    I did not care for the combination of watermelon and banana. I prefer the mock banana split I make with 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, banana, and 1 Tbs. low sugar jam (warmed in the microwave) drizzled over the top. - 3/22/09

    This was ok, but for 200 calories I can have some REAL ice cream, which is better. I eat enough fruit and veges at other times, so would rather spend my dessert calories on something I really enjoy. - 11/18/09

    Just tried this with a little adaptation as I had no granola and I used a honey dew melon. It was great. I will make this again. - 11/18/09

    This was awsome! Tried it with the cottage cheese suggested above also. I like them both, but prefer the origanal. Calories are high, but I make this my breakfast with a slice of toast. This holds me over till lunch. - 9/28/09

    This recipe is very similar to what I eat quite often for breakfast (which is plain, fat-free Greek yogurt topped with fresh fruit and granola/dry cereal--with some flaxseed and chopped nuts sprinkled on top). This 'banana split' sounds cool and refreshing -- perfect for a summer afternoon treat. - 6/11/10
