A banana split… for breakfast?! That’s sure to get the kids out of bed! The Naturipe Breakfast Banana Split isn’t just a delicious treat — the nuts, fruit, and yogurt will give you a nutritious energy boost to start your day.
Folks have been making banana splits since 1904. In fact, both Latrobe, Pennsylvania and Columbus, Ohio have a claim to its birthplace. But the Naturipe Breakfast Banana Split isn’t something you’d find in an ice cream parlor – it’s loaded with yogurt instead!
Just like the original banana split, this Breakfast Banana Split is best served in an oval dish. But it looks just fine in a regular bowl, too. You can also serve it in the peel!
First, open the banana and cut in half lengthwise. Place scoops of yogurt on top of the banana. The thicker consistency of Greek yogurt works best, but regular yogurt will do as well.
Try experimenting with different berry yogurt flavors! A scoop of blueberry, vanilla, and strawberry will give it the colorful appearance that banana splits are known for. If you want to mix it up, try using coconut, apricot, or key lime.
Next, add the berries. Naturipe berries are perfectly juicy and flavorful, just what this recipe needs. You can mix the blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries together or put each group of berries on a separate yogurt scoop.
Now for the crunch! Sprinkle some crushed California walnuts on top of the berries and around the edges of the dish. You can also swap the walnuts for granola or use them both for extra crispiness.
Finally, drizzle honey over the berries, nuts, and granola to top it all off. To give it that classic banana split look, put a bright red strawberry or cherry on top!
Creamy and crunchy, sweet and tangy, this treat has it all. It’s a tasty breakfast, but it makes a cool dessert for a hot summer evening too!
