August 25th is National Banana Split Day and what better way to celebrate than with a decadent banana dessert? Although a traditional banana split is made with whipped cream and ice cream, this vegan-friendly dish is completely dairy-free. Although this recipe is healthier than a traditional banana split, it delivers the same indulgent flavors and creamy texture.

To make the dessert vegan-friendly, the recipe calls for vegan chocolate ice cream, dairy-free chocolate sauce and coconut whipped cream. The rest of the dessert is comprised of bananas, cherries and a mix of roasted nuts. The recipe is easy to assemble and makes a fun activity for children or large parties. Because the recipe is vegan-friendly it is also appropriate for those who adhere to a dairy-free or gluten-free diet.

This indulgent dessert is the perfect way to celebrate National Banana Split Day.
