{Entertaining} Banana "Splits" in a "Split" Second!

These little modified banana splits are what I call one of my "cheat" desserts. "Cheat" because they might be the easiest dessert alive to whip up...I'm talking 2 minutes. I've served them many a time when I have a girls' night or Bo and I have friends over for dinner. I serve mine in these fun martini glasses {I have a red one and yellow one too!}, and they're always a hit because they are so adorable but make a sophisticated statement at the same time! No messy mixing bowls, no oven to deal with, no millions of dishes to clean up...just a few simple ingredients which include vanilla ice cream, bananas, strawberries, Hershey's syrup, whipped cream, and cherries. Arrange them all in the martini glass and voila. ***Make sure you cut your banana in half and then cut again lengthwise and stick in each side of the martini glass. That's my favorite part!***

I made these for Bo and I tonight for dessert and since we're both watching our waistlines {ughh!} I made a healthier version by swapping the ice cream with fro yo, the whipped cream with light whipped cream, and lightening up on the Hershey's syrup. No need to do anything with the bananas and strawberries...they're already good for you! Trust me, it was just as tasty as the fattier version! ENJOY!
