Reviews forGraham Cracker Banana Split Dessert
"Great recipe! Made it as stated except omitted the walnuts (family preferences). Taste was spot on!"
"Very refreshing for a warm day."
"Made this for my boss who is diabetic, everyone enjoyed this"
"Did I do something wrong? I followed the recipe and the bottom was a thick paste, the pudding was extremely thick. I ended up tossing everything and made my own version. Is the above recipe correct?"
"We were very pleased with this recipe. Very refreshing!"
"Do to high cholesterol we use smart balance instead of butter. The dessert was excellent."
"True to it's name, it tasted like a banana split and you don't have to feel to guilty about the calorie count!"
"My husband says this recipe is definately a "Keeper". I can't believe it is for diabetics, but my blood sugar reading says that it is."
"I was out of vanilla pudding so used chocolate fudge sugar free pudding in this and no graham cracker crust. It was delicious and less fattening, I am sure."
"We had company and I made this for dessert. I made it the day before and it was good but we were expecting alot more flavor. I don't know what it needs but it just seemed like it needed something. I will make it again but I'll try something different with it. I didn't use the sugar-free, fat-free, unsweetened, reduced fat ingredients either."
