Watermelon Banana Split

This refreshing eye-catching twist on a banana split features lycopene-rich watermelon scoops in place of ice cream, which is higher in fat and calories. It's a healthy option that scores big points for looks and taste!

What You'll Need

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 medium watermelon
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup caramel fruit dip
  • 1/4 cup honey roasted almonds

What to Do

  1. Peel bananas and cut in half lengthwise then cut each piece in half. For each serving, lay 2 banana pieces against the sides of each of 4 banana split or other shallow dishes.
  2. Using an ice cream scoop, place 3 watermelon "scoops" between the banana slices in each dish. Remove seeds, if necessary.
  3. Top each watermelon "scoop" with a different fruit -- one with blueberries, one with pineapple tidbits, and one with sliced strawberries. Drizzle caramel fruit dip over the top, sprinkle with almonds, and serve.

For those that are dairy sensitive or elect not to have dairy, this is the recipe for you. Instead of the three scoops of ice cream, they are replaces by three scoops of watermelon. My sons will love this recipe. One chooses to be vegan and the other just avoids dairy.

YUMMY! I love banana splits but they are not really kind to the waist line. This is a great replacement desert. I can not wait until the watermelons are plentiful and sweet. I really want to try this recipe.
