Weightwatchers Style Banana Split

Cold, creamy, nutty smothered in chocolate sauce.  Now that's what im talking about!

There's been a lot of talk recently about banana based desserts and it got me longing.  So the other evening, in my usual, its late, there's a film on and i need to stuff my face with something mode, i thought of this.  Not only am i mad about bananas but ice cream and then ice cream with nuts really does it for me. 

As im sure you all know at this stage, im loving Choccy Philly.  Its just so versatile and i really helpful for Weightwatchers Style desserts especially the little portion tubs.  I just love them and smothered on top of this  is just the icing on the split. 

Now as much as i love nuts, peanuts, pistachio (my favorite) old style halloween nuts or monkey nuts as they used to be called, well their not very propoint friendly although they are very nutritional when it comes to have excellent natural fats.  I actually ate a lot of nuts after being sectioned on my second baby and i feel that they really helped me.  Im probably way off with the above statement and im sure some nutritionalist would probably disagree but just at the time i was so run down (as is normal after delivering a baby but i felt better after them.  Don't take my word for it, its just my personal opinion or feeling really.  Anyway i realised that 2 brazil nuts works out with a Weightwatchers Value of 1 Propoint which is really good because their very large and you feel like your getting more than you bargained for, 

Anyways a banana split has always been a favourite in my house.  Now this is not fancy, pretty or even a recipe but it sure is tasty. 

Weightwatchers Propoints per Serving 4

Weightwatchers Propoints per Recipe 8
Serves 2


2 bananas peeled and sliced very thinly

2 measured scoops of Weightwatchers Vanilla Ice Cream (measuring spoon comes with the ice cream)
1 small 30g tub of Choccy Philly
6 Brazil nuts sliced thinly
2 99 Flake


In 2 small serving bowls, place half of the sliced bananas at the bottom of each bowl so that should be one banana between the 2 of the bowls.  Place 1 scoop of ice cream into each bowl.  

Top with the remaining bananas.  Remove the film off the top of the small tub of Choccy Philly and place in the microwave for 20 seconds.  Pour half the tub over each of the bowls.  Slice 3 brazil nuts thinly and sprinkle over 1 bowl and repeat the process for the second bowl.  Insert a Flake 99 into each bowl and serve. 

Enjoy the Niptuck way, so you don't have too!

  1. I really like choc philly too - wasn't sure at first but it's really grown on me.
    Anything with chocolate and bananas is a winner!
