Dessert for breakfast? That sounds like a dream. Well, with this Morning Banana Split that dream can come true! This unique twist tastes great but feels even better. Made with 100% natural and wholesome ingredients, there isn’t a single bite of this dish that you will regret eating. In place of ice cream, this recipe incorporates protein-packed Greek yogurt. This healthy alternative is so much better for your digestive system and goes just as well as ice cream with a variety of toppings. Some fun toppings that you could include in your split are strawberries, pineapples, and peanuts. If you want to really seal the deal on a flavor explosion in each bite, mix your yogurt with a sprinkle of cocoa powder and a drizzle of honey. You might even end up eating it for dessert!

    This only comes out to 4 Smart Points when you put it in the recipe builder. Fruits are 0 smart points unless they are blended.

        It’s the honey and nuts giving it 3 points. I’d omit the nuts and make this 1 point. Some cocoa powder is 1 point so that might be where the extra point is found.

    yum – I think I would use cinnamon instead of cocoa powder
