If you have some bananas that need to be used up now, a breakfast banana split with berries is ideal. Once the bananas are past their ‘perfect’ point (black and mushy in places) they’re pretty much banana bread fodder!

Healthy Banana Split Ingredients

Banana bread is a great way to use up overripe bananas but this recipe is for ripe ones. A banana split for breakfast is a very easy recipe with simple ingredients. As well as the bananas, you will need berries, granola and Greek yogurt. Yep, that’s all, it’s a super-easy 4 ingredient recipe. You can use pre-packaged granola or homemade granola – whichever you prefer.

How to Make Breakfast Banana Split with Berries

This easy no-cook breakfast with fresh fruit takes 5 minutes to prepare. This makes it ideal if you’re looking for healthy breakfast ideas for kids that don’t require much work. Cut the banana in half lengthwise when you’re ready to make this banana and fresh berries breakfast.

Rinse the berries. Now you can arrange both banana halves on a serving plate or shallow bowl and add the yogurt on top. Add the granola and a few berries to finish it off! This alternative to a smoothie bowl will take you 5 minutes tops! Once you prepare you can serve immediately.

Breakfast Banana Split Variations

Breakfast banana splits are one of the most tweak-able recipes I’ve ever made. Once you have your banana, you can top it with literally anything. Although a conventional banana split is more of a dessert recipe, switching the cream for yogurt makes it breakfast-worthy. I love vanilla Greek yogurt. You can use another flavour of Greek yogurt, maybe strawberry or even plain. Frozen yogurt is even an option with a healthy twist that even the kids will love. Cottage cheese would be a great addition for a healthy version of traditional banana splits with ice cream.

Any fresh berries work just fine when making this breakfast banana split. Strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries – those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. Cherries are also good.

I like to use fresh fruits and berries because thawed or canned ones aren’t firm. If that’s all you have then stir the frozen berries into the yogurt instead of arranging them on top.

As for the granola, you can use literally any kind of granola, and the stores tend to carry a lot. You could even use muesli if you prefer a softer texture without clusters. I love the way granola crunches though and the crunch contrasts well with the softer ingredients. So I would say the crunchier the better for me!

Optional ingredients include honey, maple syrup, nut butter, chocolate chips, chia seeds, fruit cocktail, chunks of pineapple, peanut butter, jam, chocolate syrup or fudge syrup, and chopped mixed nuts. These aren’t all healthy choices but a drizzle of honey is so good over this easy no-cook breakfast. Don’t feel bad about adding a small amount of “treat” to the other healthy ingredients.

More Ideas for Bananas and Fresh Berries

A breakfast banana split with berries is always a good call but there are more ways to serve this first meal of the day. What about yogurt parfait style? That means you would chop the bananas instead of slicing them lengthwise. Layer in fruit pieces along with the ripe banana and some yogurt, too. It is easy to make fun breakfasts with healthy food!

Add a layer of banana slices to a tall glass, top with yogurt then top with fresh berries and granola. You can make as many layers if you want or just add one layer or each ingredient. This would taste exactly the same since it’s still yogurt, granola, banana and fresh berries, but it’s fun to make.

Another idea would be to prepare waffles or pancakes and serve the fruit and other ingredients on top. It all depends what you’re in the mood for and how much time you have to prepare breakfast. This is a fun breakfast idea that you can put your own spin on based on what you like and have on hand.

It also depends whether you’re looking for an easy no-cook breakfast you can whip up in 5 minutes or you want something extra. Maybe it’s the weekend and you feel like treating yourself! Either way, this alternative to a smoothie bowl is going to leave you feeling happy and it’ll keep you full until lunchtime.

Today I used blueberries and raspberries but another day I might be in the mood for strawberries. I love that you can make this easy no cook breakfast with whatever fruit you have. I bet chopped peach would be amazing, either with or instead of berries.

Try it with different toppings and see which is your favourite. Add a cup of coffee and you have all the makings of a nutritious and delicious breakfast.
