Breakfast Banana Splits . . . you want one.


My favorite story about banana splits involves my dad and Uncle Mike .  It seems years and years and YEARS ago, they decided to have an eating contest.  They consumed massive amounts of pizza and then went for banana splits.  My dad finished his, but my Uncle Mike saved his favorite part of the banana split for last, and was too full to eat it.  Somehow, this made a very big impression on me when I was a kid.

Moral of the Story: Finish your banana split whether you're too full or not. 

I found this idea through Pinterest...which led me to The Kitchn (love).  Their breakfast banana splits may be a *tad* bit healthier, topped with jam, but hey...you have to get your daily intake of Nutella somewhere!


Breakfast Banana Splits

1 banana
Greek yogurt (I like Fage)
sliced strawberries
Nutella
chopped nuts, toasted


Slice the banana lengthwise and place in a bowl.  Add 2 scoop of yogurt...I used an ice cream scooper for this.  Greek yogurt is so thick that it keeps it's shape.


Add the sliced strawberries.


Heat some Nutella in the microwave for about 10 seconds.  Drizzle over the sundae.


Add toasted, chopped nuts. (I used almonds here, but pecans might be my favorite.)


Ta-da!  Breakfast Banana Splits!  

Make them soon.  I won't tell if you eat all of the Nutella off the top first.  You know, just in case you're too full to eat the rest. ;)

  28. Like everyone else, I think these look spectacular, but I really came here to comment on your BOWLS! I haven't seen anyone else with Currier and Ives china! This is my everyday dishware. I collected it for a long time and then decided to put it to good use. Too cute to see it on your blog!

    ReplyDelete

  39. Oh my goodness, that looks divine! It would definitely be motivation to eat your most important meal of the day!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Umm yes I want one! Greek yogurt and nutella yumm:)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ah yes, anything that has Nutella as an ingredient gets my vote! My only complaint would be the "breakfast" aspect of this ... because I can totally see myself eating this for every meal.

    ReplyDelete
  42. This is the yummiest thing I've seen in a while. Hello breakfast!

    ReplyDelete
  43. This is one menu i'll be looking forward to wake up to in the morning... so scrumptious!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Now, that's my kind of breakfast! Bravo!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Such a great idea! Our dietary restrictions mean we can't eat sugar (or bananas), but this gives me a great idea to mix some cocoa powder into the almond butter and drizzle it over the strawberries and yogurt. OMNOMNOM.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Fruit for breakfast is the best! And that looks fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  47. These look great . . . . except I do not like greek yogurt at all :-( I use it to cook with but to just eat, icky I wonder if regular yogurt work work just as well?

    ReplyDelete

  52. Those look AH-mazing! That, and I love that you have the same dishes/bowls that my mom had when I was growing up. That pattern is a sweet flashback for me. Is it a Texas thing? I was born & raised in Nacogdoches. ♥

    ReplyDelete
  53. I absolutely love nutella...and the overall picture just looks yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Yum! But I have to say that I noticed the bowls you used. My mom has the EXACT same dishes.... We grew up using them and they're still going strong.
