Turn your favorite banana split sundae into a mini pie for a less guilty treat

Huge banana splits look amazing, but how can just one person finish all that? These mini pies gives you all the flavor without the guilt of finishing an enormous dessert all by yourself.

I remember when I was a kid, my dad went to this fancy ice cream parlor and ordered a banana split. This thing was so big a family of six could have easily eaten it together. My dad was confident he could finish the dessert himself, so we sat by and watched. He made it about halfway and finally threw in the towel. We still laugh about this story, and we now know to make sure banana splits are served a bit smaller. These cute little banana split ice cream pies are perfect for just one person and taste just like the classic banana split, but in pie form. What could be better?
