Banana Split Ice Cream in a Jar #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone!

Wow, Sunday already, time is going way to quick!!!  Today for #SundaySupper we are sharing recipes inspired by the Desserts In Jars cookbook by Shaina Olmanson.  This cookbook is pretty cool and has so many great ideas in it from cupcakes baked in mason jars, to pancakes to cheesecake, pies and mousse.  Everything in this cookbook looks delicious!  I swear I could eat everything in the whole book!!  The Desserts in Jar cookbook inspired me to make today’s healthy, good for you Banana Split Ice Cream.

Banana Split Ice Cream in a Jar

This was such a fun dessert to make.  I just love using Mason Jars for desserts, treats and even meals.  I don’t think I use them often enough, but I think that will change, just wait and see.  They are just so cute and remind me of something you would get in the 1950’s, kind of retro.  My Husband thinks it’s crazy of how many Mason Jars I have, but he didn’t complain when I handed him today’s dessert!!!

My Banana Split Ice Cream is all natural, no sugar added!  I used frozen fruit and blended it in my food processor until it was ice cream consistency.  The fruit I used was banana, strawberry and pineapple.  I topped my dessert with some of my homemade sugar free chocolate syrup, TruWhip Whip Cream, maraschino cherry, after all a banana split can’t be a banana split with out the cherry and some chopped peanuts.  It was perfect!!!

The dessert is so quick to make too!  I think the whole thing took me maybe 10 minutes.  You’ll have to forgive the photos, I had to go quick with photographing because frozen treats melt pretty fast, especially when its warm out.  This dessert is so refreshing and is perfect for eating on a hot summers day, while sitting on a swing on the front porch.  Ok, I don’t have a swing on my porch, well I don’t even have a porch, but it is a nice idea.  Plus this dessert is perfect to give to kids.  You won’t have to feel bad about them eating it!!  After all it’s 100% real fruit!!!
