Breakfast Banana Split

For my hubby's birthday I fixed him a special breakfast that included these 'banana splits'.  The original recipe was found on Chellie's blog, Art From My Table.  I just loved how it looked and even though I am not a fan of bananas, I have to say it WAS delicious and refreshing.
Bananas, blackberries, raspberries, mini chocolate chips and strawberry yogurt create this fun creation.  BUT . . . the next day, I realized I had forgotten to add the granola!  Oh well, I have enough to make these again and THIS time I will add the granola because I think that will really kick it up another notch . . . and I didn't think the first ones needed a kick!
I couldn't find Greek strawberry yogurt so I just went with the regular.  I did get the 'full fat' version but I think the 'light' would work just as well.
I followed Chellie's instructions and froze the yogurt in the containers for an hour.  I decided to use a cookie dough scoop instead of an ice cream scoop to get the cute, little round balls of frozen yogurt.  Then I put them on a flat plate, covered and returned to the freezer until the morning.
I let the yogurt balls sit on the counter for a bit to soften.  Just slice the bananas and fill the dish with the yogurt balls, berries (any kind you like).  Add a sprinkle of chocolate chips and don't forget the granola like I did!  I think these would be great with a little bit of whipped cream and sprinkles too!
An omelet, the banana splits and Cinnamon Roll French Toast Muffins (see my post on those for another easy, fun recipe!) created this special birthday breakfast!  I'm sure I'll be making these banana splits often - trying different flavors of yogurt and that little bit of whipped cream haha!

On any given week (depending on how busy I am!) I love to participate in Link Parties.  These gals put a lot of time and effort into hosting these parties so I always want to show my appreciation by directing my readers to these blogs.
