Electrolux #splits : mini banana bites, you can eat them all or you can split


Kelly Ripa is at it again raising money for ovarian cancer and I want to help. I have first hand experience with this and suffice to say my friend got the treatment she needed and she is happy and healthy, lets make that the case for more and lets find ways to cure it completely so in the long run there is no need for treatment.

Yes its summer and here in New York city its sweltering so why not make banana splits? I took some tiny scoops and coated them in a Scharffen Berger chocolate shell, I placed them on top of nice slices of banana that had a squeeze of lime and then I squirted some raspberry sauce around them to bathe in, the whole thing got a little whipped cream and a cherry. Perfect little banana split bites to eat by yourself or share.


I even made another mini split from an apple banana, just in case you want to eat the "whole" thing. How do you like your banana split?

Beautiful! I'll bring my peach ice cream to have with your banana splits.

Thanks for the cancer "shout out" and WOW look at those banana splits! I haven't had one in years, but may change that with these sensible sized portions. I think organic vanilla ice cream with a spoon of strawberry jam on top, or fresh raspberry syrup, with some Texas pecans sprinkled over. Now there's a dessert I can wrap my lips around!

I hope you submitted this to FoodBuzz's call for banana splits.

I love what you did here because normally when I hear banana split, I tune out and turn off because I just don't like that kind of large eating but this is very manageable. :)
