Don't let the name fool you; this "sundae" is actually a healthy serving of fruit in a bowl. Frozen bananas are pulsed in a food processor until they're creamy like ice cream and then topped with more fruit, nuts and coconut. You can shamelessly eat this for breakfast or even as a recovery snack after a big run - your body will thank you for the extra energy and potassium.



  1. Cut each banana into 6 chunks and freeze until rock-solid, preferably overnight.
  2. Make the ice cream: Put the banana chunks in a food processor and process. (Hang on, your food processor may jolt in the very beginning!) The bananas will look crumbly at first, then gooey and eventually light and creamy, just like ice cream. Stop the food processor frequently to scrape down the sides of the bowl and break up any clumps. Serve right away or scrape into a container and freeze until ready to serve.
  3. Make the sundae: Mash the raspberries and maple syrup together in a small bowl with a fork until saucy. Scoop the banana ice cream into a dish and top with the raspberry sauce, blueberries, pistachios, coconut, chocolate chips and a dollop of Greek yogurt.
