Banana splits always look so fancy and I loved the idea of making a healthier version that would be perfect for breakfast or as a sweet treat for any time of the day.
They are so easy to make, and the fresh Açaí makes it a cool, refreshing treat to enjoy, especially during the summer.
Açaí is a popular superfood that is rich in antioxidants. It is said to be good for your brain, heart and have many other health benefits.
One of the questions I get about Açaí often, is “Do they actually taste good?” and for those of you who haven’t tried it yet, YES! One spoon and you’ll be hooked. Trust me, especially if you are already a fan of fruits.
Here are some of my other topping suggestions you can try out:
- Fresh tropical fruits: mango, passionfruit, dragon fruit, kiwi and so on.
- Roasted nuts: Pecans, Walnuts, Slivered almonds, Pine nuts etc.
- Cacao Nibs
- Coconut Flakes or desiccated coconut
- Drizzle of melted nut butter or chocolate.
- Raw or roasted seeds: Pumpkin seeds, Sunflower seeds, Chia seeds etc.
