I’m not usually one for healthy versions of dessert – but when it’s made of banana and chocolate, it’s a whole different story.

Wanna Banana is located right on the shore by Kite Beach; a hip part of town, where kite surfers, fashionistas, and hipsters gather side by side. This month, the UAE is celebrating Flag Day and National Day, and the beach was therefore covered in hundreds of flags.


Wanna Banana is situated right next to the long walkway, which runs along the whole beach, and is crowded with walkers and runners. It is a tiny little shop, but filled with friendly staff, and of course, bananas. Being a chocolate fanatic, I picked their latest flavor, “Chocolate chip,” with added chocolate sauce. It was beyond amazing! My friend picked peanut butter, which was almost equally delicious. The ice cream was very filling – one regular sized cup contains two bananas (+ toppings).



I know that I will definitely be going back to Wanna Banana; their ice cream is healthy, delicious, and reasonably priced. They advertise themselves as a snack bar, and the ice cream is definitely filling enough for me to agree with them. When you next visit Dubai, make sure to check them out!

You can find Wanna Banana on Instagram, Facebook, and on their own webpage
