If you’ve never tried a banana whip, you’re missing out. It’s frozen banana whipped into a custard-like consistency that can satisfy any sweet tooth — especially with the right mix-ins. Think: peanut butter, chocolate chips, coconut shavings. Mmmmm. Delicious, cool and creamy, it’s a dessert that can easily stand in for a scoop of ice cream — and it’s made entirely from a perfectly heathy whole fruit! Talk about a guilt-free (and dairy-free, and gluten-free) dessert.

Lucky for us, the Philly area boasts plenty of eateries where you can find this treat, and we included a few spots down the Shore, too, to cover all bases. Read up, then go get your banana whip on.
