It’s time to take a trip down memory lane with this healthy twist on a classic, childhood dessert! Quick and easy to make, this Acai Banana Split is perfect for breakfast, dessert or as a sweet, nostalgic snack to share. It’s also a delicious way to bump up your daily fruit intake!
Instead of topping hers with ice cream, Healthy Luxe has made her own creamy, dairy-free Acai Nice Cream out of just four ingredients! The hero ingredient is Amazonia’s Acai Pure sachets, which contain 7 x the antioxidants of blueberries plus Omega-3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids. The secret to nice thick nice cream is to add small amounts of liquid as you blend to ensure your ice cream isn’t runny!
As for toppings, you can be as indulgent as you like depending on whether you’re having your banana split for breakfast or dessert. Healthy Luxe has topped hers with granola, fresh strawberries and blueberries, flakes coconut, and a good drizzle of peanut butter. For something a little more indulgent, you could top it with melted chocolate and choc chips!
