Grilled Banana Split

- Whipped cream
- Maraschino cherries
- 1 and half cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups heavy cream
Start this recipe by opening the grill to medium high. Don’t peel your ripe banana! Cut it in the middle lengthwise. Place it aside and take a small bowl. Add the honey and melted butter in the small bowl. Take a clean brush and dip it in the honey and butter mixture. Brush this on the cut side part of each banana piece. Coat it evenly and gently place the banana on the grill with the cut side down. Use your hand or a spatula to place the banana on the grill to prevent it from breaking. Watch the banana until it starts to soften and grill marks start to appear on the cut side. Take out the banana from the grill and gently peel it. If you want to keep your ice cream cold then place the ice cream and whipped cream after your let the grilled banana cool down for a few minutes. Take your semisweet chocolate chips and heat it up in the grill too. Drizzle the sauce all over the cream and ice cream. Top it with the chopped nuts and cherry. You can create a healthier alternative to this dish by replacing full cream and ice cream into fat free cream and yogurt.

Start by heating the grill into medium to high heat and grill your plums. Once you see the char marks take it off the grill and leave it to cool down. After this, take your dough and shape it into a 12 inch round shape on a flat surface. Brush the base of the grill with canola oil to prevent the dough from sticking into the grill. Place the dough gently on top and wait for it to turn golden brown on the bottom. Once its cooked, place it on a sheet pan to place aside. Now, mix your honey and mascarpone cheese and mix it evenly on the crust and leave off an inch or half inch section. Scatter the berries and plum wedges on top of the dough evenly and place it back on the grill. Wait for about two minutes or until you see the mascarpone bubble a little. Top the pizza with a dusting of confectioner’s sugar and take it off the grill. Slice it into equal pieces and serve! You can lessen the guilt by skipping the confectioners’ sugar and topping it with cinnamon powder and replacing your mascarpone cheese with fat free cheese or Greek yogurt.
