I can't even begin to tell you how these tasted! The sweet mellow creaminess of bananas tossed in coconut sugar and nut butter, all caramelised together to create one seriously dreamy mouthful. Then layered with crunchy candied almonds and finished with two giant scoops of our COYO Simply Vanilla, dairy free coconut milk ice cream, lashed with home made coconut caramel sauce. They were so simple to make, yet so satisfying, and such a heathy version of a Banana Split. No refined sugar, no dairy and only wholesome whole food ingredients.
