Tart Cherry Superfood Banana Splits


Total Time: 35 Minutes
Prep: 15 Minutes
Cook: 20 Minutes
Yield: 2 Servings
Level: Beginner


  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 cups tart cherry juice
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (whole, low-fat, and non-fat all work)
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup granola
  • ¼ cup dried tart cherries
  • ½ cup frozen tart cherries (thawed)


  • Make the tart cherry chocolate sauce.  Place the chocolate chips in a bowl.  Add the tart cherry juice to a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer.  Simmer for about 20 minutes, until reduced to ⅔ cup.  Pour the reduced tart cherry juice into the bowl with the chocolate chips and mix until all of the chocolate is melted, and you have a smooth sauce. 
  • Cut the bananas in half lengthwise and place on 2 plates.  Spoon ½ cup of Greek yogurt on each banana, then drizzle on 2 tablespoons of almond butter and 2 tablespoons of tart cherry chocolate sauce. 
  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of granola, 2 tablespoons of dried tart cherries, and ¼ cup of thawed frozen tart cherries on top of each banana split.  Serve and enjoy! 
  • Store any leftover tart cherry chocolate sauce in an airtight container in the fridge for later use.
