Happy National Banana Split Day! On a hot summer day, there's nothing better than a creamy, and deliciously sweet Mocha Banana Split. Make sure you love a kick of coffee flavor! Which, being Caffeine Addicts, I know you do...
1 tablespoon whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon instant espresso granules
1 medium banana, peeled and cut in half crosswise
1/2 cup coffee low-fat ice cream
1/2 cup chocolate low-fat ice cream
4 teaspoons chocolate syrup
4 teaspoons chopped walnuts, toasted
4 teaspoons chocolate covered espresso beans, chopped
Place whipping cream and espresso granules in a bowl; stir with a whisk until soft peaks form.
Cut each banana half in half lengthwise. Place 2 banana quarters in each of 2 bowls. Top each serving with 1/4 cup coffee ice cream and 1/4 cup chocolate ice cream.
Drizzle each serving with 2 teaspoons chocolate syrup, and top with half of whipped cream mixture. Sprinkle each serving with 2 teaspoons walnuts and 2 teaspoons espresso beans, and top with 1 cherry.
