Lickety Split!
Woohoo! A banana split you can sip thru a straw. It's perfect for the lazy (and those who fear spoons!). Enjoy...

Ingredients:

For Shake
1 small banana
1/2 cup light vanilla soymilk
1/4 cup Breyers Double Churn Free Creamy Vanilla fat-free ice cream
1 tsp. Coffee-mate Sugar Free French Vanilla powdered creamer
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia)
1 cup crushed ice or 5 - 7 ice cubes

For Topping
3 frozen unsweetened strawberries
1 tsp. sugar-free strawberry preserves
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip
1/2 tbsp. Hershey's Lite chocolate syrup
Optional: maraschino cherry

Directions:
Place strawberries in a small microwave-safe dish, and microwave for 30 seconds, until mostly thawed. Mash thoroughly with a fork, mix in preserves, and set aside.

In a separate small dish, combine powdered creamer with 1 tbsp. hot water, and stir until dissolved. Place creamer mixture along with all other shake ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into a tall glass, and top with the strawberry mixture. Finish with Reddi-wip, chocolate syrup and, if you like, a maraschino cherry. Observe how beautiful it looks... then stir it up and enjoy!

Banana Quit!
We've gotta hand it to restaurant chains like Steak 'n Shake. The idea of putting classic ice cream sundae flavors and ingredients into milkshakes is TOTALLY brilliant. The thing that's not so smart? The psychotic amount of calories and fat stuffed into 'em. 750 calories for a beverage?! That's out of control -- especially since most people order a shake as a drink to be sipped along with their meal. It's like washing down your lunch with a couple of BURGERS, calorically speaking. And no sane human would do that! Instead, make and enjoy our Slurpable Split Shake. We've shaved roughly 500 calories off the average banana split shake, and kept all of the fun and deliciousness. The only thing psychotic about our swap is how crazy-good it tastes and how crazy-obsessed you'll become with it!
