Every year when I was younger, my family and I would take a trip down to San Diego and visit Lego Land and Sea World (unfortunately). I loved Sea World the most, as I loved seeing and touching the animals, but also, it meant we got to get some Dippin Dots. We loooooved that stuff, the banana split flavor was my favorite flavor.
When making my banana nice cream the other day for lunch, I realized that midway, the bananas looked like Dippin Dots! It blew my mind, and I immediately got the idea of this recipe.
I also got interested in taking a look at the ingredients list and nutritional facts of the original Banana Split Dippin Dots, and compared it my low-fat raw vegan version.
