Alright. I’ll give you the banana split breakfast recipe without all those cute stories I planned to tell you.

But just for the record, the only reason we shan’t dig into my life history is that I have seen how you make fun of food bloggers on social media. It’s really not nice, you should stop.

I am not a food blogger though. I write about fitness and health so while I won’t bore you to tears with my cute life stories, I will try to amuse you with several ways you can prepare the banana split for breakfast.

This is one of the best simple healthy breakfast ideas that you can customise to suit the whole family.

Kid-friendly creative spin for picky eaters

Would your child have a banana for breakfast if you were to serve it to them? Would your child eat this banana split for breakfast if it were on the morning menu?

Right, I think the answer is clear here.

If you have a hard time getting your child to eat fruits unless you bribe them, you can solve that problem by serving this colourful and yummy breakfast.

You can use the following to prepare your kid’s healthy banana split breakfast:

Use their favourite yoghurt flavour (you can freeze the yoghurt if you want to trick them into believing they are having ice cream for breakfast!)

If your child isn’t old enough to eat honey, you can pour a bit of maple syrup on the split (my kids swear by this)

You can also substitute blueberries with raspberries or with any of their favourite berries

Instead of topping the splits with nuts, you can use chocolate chips

You can use healthy granola instead of rolled oats

Yummy banana split breakfast recipe ideas for YOU

Now that we have sorted out your fussy child, let’s refocus on you. You can have this for breakfast in so many ways and still, keep it super healthy.

I used plain fat-free yoghurt for mine, but you can use cottage cheese, or Greek yoghurt if you need to meet that daily protein goal.

You can also replace the oats with granola, as long as it contains no artificial sweeteners. If you are a gluten-free kind of girl, then this granola is still perfect for you.

The fruits – fresh or dry, you can really go to town on this banana split, it’s all up to you.

This looks good – best part is it doesn’t look healthy, it looks naughty – very pleasing to the eye.
