Yogurt Banana Split – Healthy Breakfast Recipe
When my sister sent me a photo of a yogurt banana split, I knew I had to try one. I love banana splits with ice cream but this seemed like a fun way to eat a healthy breakfast.

I know this is going to be a recipe that I will make at least once a week because it’s cheap, good for me, and oh so tasty! Why don’t you pin this recipe and it can be your new fav too? Trust me, you’ll love it!
Is banana and yogurt a good breakfast idea?
Banana and yogurt are two foods that is great to eat together! Bananas are high in potassium and when you combine them with protein (yogurt!) these two foods help you build muscles as well as replenish amino acids! So basically, this is a good recipe to eat after a workout.
What exactly is a Yogurt Banana Split?
Well, I’m glad you asked! A yogurt banana split is very similar to a banana spilt. You use yogurt in place of the ice cream and top it with fruit or other toppings of your choosing.
How do I make a Yogurt Banana Split?
Alright alright! Let me give you step-by-step detailed instructions.
Cut a banana in half, lengthwise like you would have in a banana split.
Place the bananas in a dish, a long one works best!
Scoop your yogurt into the center of your dish, on top of the bananas.
Pour granola over top and sprinkle with desired fruit and toppings.
Drizzle with honey or maple syrup as desired.
Can I use Greek Yogurt in Yogurt Banana Split?
Yes, Greek yogurt is really good for you and so bonus for you if you have Greek yogurt to use in this recipe. You could use flavoured yogurt or plain!
What fruit goes well with Yogurt Banana Split?
I think berries go super well with yogurt so they would be delicious in a yogurt banana split! I used blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. I 100 percent would use strawberries but the ones at the store weren’t the best this time. You could use any fruit you want really!
What other toppings can I use for Yogurt Banana Split?
Coconut, chia seeds, nuts or seeds, peanut butter, and dark chocolate are a few healthy choices for your yogurt banana split.
