Healthy eating made simple and delicious.

Made with frozen yoghurt instead of ice cream or cream, our yummy banana split gives you all the taste for far fewer calories.


  • 200g (7oz) low-fat plain yoghurt
  • 15g (½oz) dark plain chocolate, broken into squares
  • 1 tsp runny honey
  • 1 level tsp cocoa powder
  • ½ level tsp cornflour
  • ¼ cup or 60ml (2floz) water
  • 2 small bananas
  • 15g (½oz) flaked almonds


  1. Freeze the yoghurt 2 hours before required, stirring halfway through to prevent ice crystals forming.
  2. Put the chocolate, honey, cocoa, cornflour and water in a small non-stick saucepan, set over a low heat and stir with a wooden spoon until the sauce is thickened and smooth.
  3. Peel the bananas and cut in half length-ways. Place each split banana in a serving dish, sandwiched together with half the frozen yoghurt. Pour the warm chocolate sauce over the top and scatter with the flaked almonds.
  4. Smart tip: Add a couple of drops of vanilla essence to the yoghurt before freezing.
