Super Cute Breakfast Banana-Split Sundae

Sep 1, 2017

The first day of school can be a mix of emotions — excitement to see friends, sadness at the end of summer, anxiety for new teachers or challenges, and maybe even a bit of resentment for the return of early morning school runs.
My daughter is experiencing all of these things and more so I wanted to come up with a fun breakfast that would put a smile on her face on the first day of school, while still being nutritious and giving her a healthy start to her day.

Breakfast sundae with yogurt, banana, alphabet sprinkles and a cherry on top.

This cute Breakfast Banana Split can be whipped up in minutes and is a healthier take on a traditional banana split.
We’re swapping out that sugar-drenched maraschino cherry for a fresh cherry, the ice cream for some yogurt, but we can still have fun with the other toppings — a few sprinkles or chocolate chips in the morning isn’t going to hurt anyone. We found these cute alphabet sprinkles that were just perfect for back to school.

We also tried freezing the yogurt overnight and scooping it like ice cream, but my daughter was not a fan of such a cold breakfast, so definitely use your own discretion for that decision.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups yogurt in favourite flavour (we used coconut)
  • fresh cherry
  • 1 banana, cut lengthwise
  • favourite toppings

Directions:

Scoop your yogurt into your serving bowl. Insert the banana on the sides and top with a cherry and desired toppings. Serve immediately.
