Since I've been craving banana splits recently (not sure why, I think I am just getting my banana fix taken care of since bananas are free with the new Points+ system), I figured I should look for an alternative to my fattening craving.  I found this recipe in the original Hungry Girl cookbook, but was a little skeptical at first.  I mean, the whole point of a banana split is to eat it with ice cream, right?! 

I was pleasantly surprised that this was actually quite good and managed to satisfy my banana split cravings.  The frozen cool whip makes it feel as though you are eating ice cream with the banana, and by adding a little water to sugar free jam, it really tastes like you have a yummy strawberry topping.  And by using the mini chocolate chips, it really makes you feel like there are a ton of chocolate chips on the banana split.  Yum!  This is a fun and easy way of eating a banana split, so I will be making this on a regular basis until I start craving something else!
