Here's a healthy take on a banana split that's incredibly easy to put together. The best part is that you only need less than an hour as well as seven ingredients to make it, including the bananas of course. And, because the canned pineapple is already sweet enough, you could even omit the Splenda in Step 2 if you prefer. The ricotta is flavored with some more Splenda and vanilla extract before dolloping onto the bananas and pineapple mixture for a wonderfully flavorful treat. You can change up the flavor by substituting other extracts—such as almond, maple, rum, or orange—for the vanilla.
