Banana splits are a popular dessert. Why? Good question and I could never come up with a good answer! In fact, when I worked at Dairy Queen I always wondered why any sane person would order a glorified Sundae with bananas & walnuts on it. Ewwww! Speaking of good old Dairy Queen, this was my second shortest job on record. The only one that can top it was my four hour stint at Chilis. Teenager jobs, so much fun! I will save my Burger King experience for another post.
Anyway, now that I am older and a “little” wiser, I now like everything in a banana split. So, instead of making a dessert, I decided to give it a shot for breakfast. My verdict is that I am still not crazy about the bananas (even though I love bananas on their own), but the rest is fabulous. The bananas are not in the cards for me because of the texture, but for you banana split enthusiasts this is the perfect breakfast for you!
- 1 C Strawberries, chopped
- 2 Bananas, chopped
- 1 C Pineapple, chopped
- 1 C Granola (I used my homemade peanut butter granola)
- 2 tbsp Mini Chocolate Chips (Enjoy Life)
- 1 C Greek Yogurt, plain
- 1 tsp Maple Syrup
- Mix chocolate chips and granola in a small bowl.
- In a separate bowl, stir maple syrup into Greek Yogurt. I prefer to use plain so then I can control the amount of sugar, but you can skip this step if you prefer to buy vanilla yogurt.
- In two sundae cups, add ingredients in this order: Bananas, granola, yogurt, strawberries, granola, yogurt, pineapple and granola.
- Grab a spoon and eat it up!
- If you are not crazy about the bananas (aka....ME), replace bananas with another fruit.
