Banana Split “Nice” Cream

Recipe posted in: Healthy Sides & Snacks

Banana Split “Nice” Cream is the healthy dessert dreams are made of.

So scrumptiously sweet, the mixture of strawberries, chocolate, peanuts and banana that collects around the bottom of your bowl won’t be there long. Rich is the best way to describe the decadence of this nice cream’s smooth, thick texture, as well as its high protein content. Dig a spoon into this dessert and you’ll see it does serious justice to the classic sweet, frozen treats. Savor each delicious bite because, as one serving, the banana is the only thing split, here.
