If you're trying to watch your weight and have an ice cream craving, try bananas. I slice them up along with some strawberries and blueberries, then drizzle sugar free chocolate syrup over them. You can even use your favorite sugar free hot fudge sauce. A little light whipped cream and a maraschino cherry and you're all set. The creamy texture and sweetness of the banana along with the traditional banana split flavors satisfies me with a fraction of the calories and sugar. How do you satisfy your cravings?
I have to say I thought this was a lame suggestion, but then coincidentally I had put some aging bananas in the fridge and pulled one out for my cereal this morning. Cold bananas really do simulate ice cream! What a happy discovery - and I haven't even tried them with chocolate sauce yet!
