Chocolate Nutty Banana Split

Chocolate Nutty Banana Split

A simple summer dessert that you can whip up in minutes Remember how good banana splits were? Well this little one is better for you *and tastes even better than the old school indulgent version. Alpro’s new plant-based ice cream is such a nice texture you can scoop it from the tub the second you remove it from the freezer, unlike traditional ice cream. It’s also a little more like gelato texture, it’s smoother and creamier. When Alpro first got in touch to work together and I trialed the new plant-based ice creams I really could not get over how much better I liked this, it’s definitely my new go-to ice cream.
