Prep: 5 Minutes | Cooking time: 2 hours | Servings: 2


2 bananas (medium-large)
Mixed berries to serve

Frozen Strawberry Yogurt

2 cups frozen strawberries
½ cup unsweetened plant-based yogurt
Juice from ½ lemon
4 Tbsp date paste

Vegan Caramel Sauce

1 cup date paste
2 Tbsp plant-based milk
1 tsp vanilla
¼ cup almond butter
Juice from ½ lemon or lime
Pinch of salt (optional)


Frozen Strawberry Yogurt

  1. Place all the yogurt ingredients in a blender and process for approximately 3 minutes.
  2. Place in the freezer for at least 4–6 hours, or until firm and serve immediately. If frozen for more than 6 hours, the ice cream will solidify and become too difficult to scoop out.

Vegan Caramel Sauce

  1. Place all the sauce ingredients in a blender and process for approximately 3 minutes.
  2. Pour the sauce into a container and cover with a lid. Keep refrigerated.

To Assemble the Banana Split

  1. Peel the bananas and cut in half lengthwise and place on two plates or bowls.
  2. Place a couple of scoops of the Strawberry Frozen Yogurt between the banana halves.
  3. Drizzle the vegan caramel sauce on top and add mixed berries.
  4. Serve immediately.

Cooking Tips

  1. Replace the Strawberry Frozen Yogurt with Nice Cream or Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream
  2. Add additional toppings of your choice, such as nuts or seeds.
  3. Drizzle a plant-based chocolate sauce instead of or in addition to the caramel sauce.
  4. The Frozen Strawberry Yogurt works really well in a Ninja Creami or your favorite ice cream maker. If using a Ninja Creami, just blend all the ingredients until smooth. Then transfer the mixture to the ice cream container and freeze for a minimum of 24 hours before processing.
