I used to be team sweet for breakfast, then I was team savory when I was pregnant with my first baby, and now I just enjoy everything!
Oh, and don't forget these breakfast burritos that make the perfect meal prep breakfast too!
I also love creating new and healthier versions of breakfast flavors you know and love. But what about making desserts into breakfasts? Now THAT'S a fun challenge! I decided my first attempt should be a banana split.
Ok I'm going to be totally honest - I've never actually had a banana split before! Like, I know what it is, and I know what's in it, but I've never had it.
I guess that's weird because everyone calls me an ice cream connoisseur?
Well, anyway, it doesn't matter that I've never had a banana split because today's recipe is even better! This Breakfast Banana Split is a lighter version of the classic dessert with ingredients you probably already have on hand!
I love this breakfast recipe because it only needs five main ingredients and I bet you have most of them on hand already! For this Breakfast Banana Split you'll need:
I chose to use nonfat vanilla greek yogurt, but I've also had it with mixed berry greek yogurt, chocolate greek yogurt, and ice cream!
You could also make this healthy breakfast dairy-free by using your favorite non-dairy yogurt. The whipped cream I use is already dairy-free!
Not a fan of raspberries? Try diced strawberries, blueberries, or even the classic cherries! You could even do a mix of all of those! Any fruit will work here.
I prefer almond butter for this breakfast banana split because it's more mild in flavor than peanut butter (anything with peanut butter just tastes like peanut butter) but it's more rich and complimentary than cashew butter or sunflower butter.
However, if you don't love or can't have almond butter, feel free to use any nut butter you like!
Want to turn this breakfast banana split into a dessert again? Just swap the greek yogurt for some Halo Top Ice Cream (not sponsored) to enjoy a protein packed, low sugar ice cream option!
Whether you want an easy healthy breakfast or a quick afternoon snack, this breakfast banana split is the perfect choice! It's made with fresh fruits, protein-packed greek yogurt, heart-healthy almond butter, and, of course, sprinkles.
