School starts this week, and I love to help my kids get their day started right with a yummy breakfast. We do the usuals around here; cereal, waffles, oatmeal, etc., but I wanted something to wow them! That is when I got this fantastic idea for a Breakfast Banana Split!
Think of all the flavors of a typical banana split, but with yogurt instead of ice cream.
I split my banana down the middle and put it in this little cardboard baking pan. I found them with the cupcake liners at the grocery store. Then I topped it with my kids favorite yogurt. You can use dairy free yogurt for this too.
Now it is time to top it off. The fancier the better. I added fresh pineapple, strawberries, pecans, and coconut. I then placed a small bowl of peanut butter in the microwave and warmed it for about 30 seconds, just enough to soften it. Then, I drizzled the peanut butter over the top and finished it off with a fresh cherry!
- 1 cup yogurt
- ¼ cup diced strawberries
- ¼ cup diced pineapple
- ¼ cup chopped pecans
- 2 tbsp shredded coconut
- 2 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 cherry
- Peel and slice banana in half long ways. Place it in a banana split dish or disposable baking pan. Top banana with yogurt and then fruit, pecans, and coconut.
- Place peanut butter in a small microwave safe dish and heat it for about 30 seconds until it is soft. Drizzle the peanut butter over your banana.
- Finally top the entire thing with a fresh cherry.
- Use dairy free yogurt
You guys!!! My kids flipped out over this one! Talk about making healthy choices fun! They loved this Breakfast Banana Split! We are definitely going to be making this more often!
