HEALTHY BANANA SPLIT RECIPE KIDS CAN MAKE
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. No pressure, breakfast. You got this, right?
We wake up hungry, and are bombarded with choices–everything from bagels and sugar laden colorful cereals to donuts and toaster pastries.
They all promise to satisfy our tummies. That early morning sugar gives us an artificial energy boost to get lunch boxes in backpacks and shovel kids out the door.
We know it isn’t healthy. But we serve it anyway because we know they’ll eat it. It’s one less thing to worry about.
BUT LETS TURN A CORNER…
Staying ahead of the enticing commercial advertising can be a challenge, but we can arm ourselves. We’ll do it with other amazing looking food. Building this healthy banana split with your kids is a great way to combat the battle against high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors.
Use this fun banana split bowl to add to the ambiance. It’s all about presentation, people. When it feels fancy, it is fancy.
Bonus? It tastes really good!
A RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
The Greek yogurt is packed with protein, and the granola adds in flavorful fiber without a ton of sugar. This healthy banana split recipe will keep you full quite a bit longer than a bowl of sugary cereal. The vividly colored fresh fruit entices the eyes–feeding those chemical firings in your brain that beg for something beautiful and delicious. The natural sugars in the fruit will give a more desirable energy boost sans the guilt. It’s a winning combo.
And your kids will love putting these together.
I mean, look at this face. Is this the face of a deprived child forced to eat cardboard for breakfast? I think not.
That is the face of bliss right there, folks.
My mama heart is full–knowing I’m giving myself and my family a healthy, but decadent, start to the day.
WHEN TO SERVE THIS HEALTHY BANANA SPLIT
By all means, don’t stop at breakfast.
This healthy banana split recipe will even be a hit as a dessert. So many people are trying to avoid high-sugar desserts. They feel sabotaged when they don’t have healthier options at functions. You’ll please their pallets and their waistlines. Nobody will miss the 7-layer dark chocolate cake you made last year. (Ok, maybe that’s drawing the line. They might discuss fond memories of that one.)
Make this healthy banana split recipe as a dessert bar for your next birthday party–or summer social event at the park–by offering different yogurt flavors, fruit, nuts, coconut, etc.
The possibilities are endless!
