Indulge your sweet tooth with this healthier version of a banana split. To save on calories and fat content, replace the traditional ice cream component with cottage cheese, which adds creaminess and a fun, healthy twist! In fact, 1/2 cup cottage cheese provides 13 g of protein to leave you satisfied for under 300 calories. The bananas and strawberries used in this recipe also add to the fiber content, which totals at 9 g per serving. That’s almost half of the daily value needed for fiber intake! There is also 46% of the daily value from Vitamin C present, so go ahead and enjoy this delectable dessert while still keeping your nutrition on point.
