Doctor Oz Sinless Watermelon Split
The Doctor Oz Sinless Watermelon Split is a healthful alternative to the traditional ice cream banana split.
Rather than 3 large scoops of ice cream smothered in chocolate sauce and covered in whipped cream, the Doctor Oz Sinless Watermelon Split is an outstanding alternative, especially for men and women in their middle ages.
- 2 bananas
- 3 scoops of watermelon
- 3 dollops of vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 2 teaspoons ground flaxseed
- Low-fat granola
- Dark chocolate chips
1. Cut the bananas in half and place into serving bowls.
2. Top the banana halves with 3 large watermelon scoops. Rich in water-content, watermelon keeps you feeling full and also contains arginine, an amino acid that helps your body naturally burn calories.
3. Put a generous scoop of Greek yogurt on top.
4. Sprinkle your favorite toppings over the whole dessert. Dr Oz suggests things like blueberries, ground flaxseed, dark chocolate chips and low-fat granola.
