This morning our kids woke up to a banana split with hot fudge for breakfast. Needless to say, they are THRILLED we are doing food photography now. It was chocolatey, fruity and very tasty.

You’ll find that most of what we are doing now is healthy so even though these look like 500 calorie treats they are just 195! This recipe is taken pretty much straight from the Biggest Loser Family Cookbook – which I highly recommend!

Trivia: A cluster of bananas is called a hand and consists of 10 to 20 bananas, which are known as fingers.
