We all love a banana split, but of course they’re not very good for our healthy eating goals. The good news is that there’s a healthier alternative. If you’re firing up the grill for a summer dinner, add this for dessert. It’s simple and delicious.


  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon crushed pineapple
  • 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
  • Vanilla Greek yogurt
  • Fresh strawberries (optional)


  1. Make a slice in the top of a banana lengthwise and carefully spread it open.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of crushed pineapple inside the cut banana.
  3. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of dark chocolate chips the length of the banana.
  4. Wrap each banana in foil.
  5. Place the bananas on the grill over indirect heat.
  6. Grill until the chocolate melts.
  7. Top with vanilla yogurt—and fresh strawberries, if you wish—and enjoy!
