Welcome to the first banana-flavored recipe on this site! As I mentioned in my guide to low carb fruit, one medium banana contains 27g net carbs – making it definitely something we should NOT be eating on a low carb diet.
But I've become a huge fan of Simply Delish, who offer a range of jel desserts and instant pudding mixes – including banana flavor! So I decided to make a fluff-style dessert with cream cheese, but then I went one stage further and decided to make it into a low carb version of a banana split!
So check out Simply Delish – the pudding mixes are also available in chocolate, strawberry and vanilla – and very reasonably priced! They even offer a “try me” pack of all four flavors for under $12!
How to Make a Low Carb Banana Split Fluff
In a stand mixer bowl, add room-temperature cream cheese, and half a cup of heavy cream. Beat until the mixture is smooth. Add in some water and more cream, then beat again to combine. Sprinkle a packet of Simply Delish Banana Flavor Instant Pudding into the mixer bowl.
Next, beat until the mixture starts to thicken, about 1-2 minutes. Then it's time to get the toppings and mix-ins ready! Here are my top low carb suggestions:
- Low carb chocolate chips
- Strawberry sauce (make your own or buy ChocZero)
- Keto sprinkles
- Unsweetened flaked coconut or toasted coconut chips
- Low carb marshmallows available from Netrition or Amazon
- Chocolate sauce (make your own or buy ChocZero)
- Fresh raspberries or chopped strawberries
- Low carb marshmallow fluff
- Chopped nuts
- Low Carb Hot Fudge Sauce
- Crushed Low Carb Meringues
- Crumbled low carb cookies
- Caramel sauce (make your own or buy ChocZero)
- Peanut butter or Sugar Free Peanut Butter Candy
- Whipped cream
- Sugar free chocolate hazelnut spread
How's that for inspiration?!? I started with mini chocolate chips which I mixed into the fluff for a great textural contrast.
I then transferred the fluff to a bowl and topped it with chopped strawberries and nuts.
Alternatively, you could set all the mix-ins and toppings out for people to add their own!
- In a stand mixer bowl, add the cream cheese and half a cup of the heavy cream, then beat until the mixture is smooth.
- Add in the water and remaining cream, then beat again to combine.
- Sprinkle the Banana Pudding mix into the mixer bowl, and beat again until the mixture starts to thicken, about 1-2 minutes.
- Stir in the chocolate chips, then transfer the fluff to a serving bowl.
- Garnish with the strawberries and nuts.
