Banana Ice Cream Sundae

A banana split you won't feel guilty about eating! This sundae has a base of banana ice cream and topped with hard-shell dark chocolate. This recipe yields around four one-cup servings and the process is simple but does require some freeze time which needs to be planned for in advance. For those who enjoy a cool dessert on a muggy night this is sure to please the palate.

Not only is this sundae great for a summer night, but it is actually quite healthy and filling. By including a peanut butter spread, a banana and fruits you're actually looking at a sustainable snack instead of just a simply delicious dessert! You're looking at most all of the sugars coming from natural sources in addition to this recipe being gluten-free and vegan!
