Banana Split Breakfast (with yogurt)

The Joy of Cooking

I have 4 children, so breakfast is an important part of my routine. It's easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to meal planning. Picky kids do not help the situation. Try to mix it up a little and make breakfast fun. Let your kids take turns picking what breakfast will be served. Let them help you prepare it, and invite their input on the ingredients list. Recipes are not and should not be set it stone. Experiment with ingredients, flavors, toppings, and preparation. It took me one year to make the perfect biscuits (or at least the perfect biscuits for my family). You may not get the exact results you want on the first try so don't give up. Half of the fun is the satisfaction of success after trial and error. To enjoy cooking you must find your own way of doing things, that is what makes cooking so wonderful. So have fun, enjoy yourself, and be sure to share your experience and recipes with all of us here on hubpages.

( I will share that biscuit recipe with you on hubpages very soon.)

  • Peel the banana and split lengthwise
  • Place the banana in a bowl
  • Top with yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, and pineapples

  • Enjoy!!!!

What, no ice cream? Actually, sounds good and healthy with the yogurt. Voting this Up and Useful.

sounds like a fun way to get kids to eat b'fast - mine are both grown up and gone. I used to serve fresh fruit chunks on bamboo spears (the kind you grill with) or on party picks. Made eating fruit a lot more fun and before they know it, they've eaten a whole banana.

Thanks for the comments. Raspberries or blueberries would be really yummy. I think I am going to give it a try.

Delicious and healthy hub! You are right about substituting ingredients. I would switch out the grapes for raspberries. Thanks for sharing!
