Chocolate-Raspberry Breakfast Banana Split

This fun, breakfast-friendly twist on a banana split swaps in yogurt for ice cream. Using strained yogurt (e.g., Greek-style or skyr) provides more protein for staying power. Plus, its thicker consistency holds its shape better to resemble a scoop of ice cream. Raspberries and peanuts give this PB&J vibes.

  • ¼ cup almond butter

  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, divided

  • ¼ cup heavy cream

  • 4 ripe bananas, peeled and halved lengthwise

  • 1 ⅓ cups low-fat vanilla strained yogurt

  • cup whole-milk chocolate strained yogurt (see Tip)

  • ½ cup raspberries

  • 4 tablespoons granola

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted roasted peanuts


  1. Whisk almond butter, cacao powder, water and 1 tablespoon maple syrup in a small bowl until smooth.

  2. Whisk cream and the remaining 1 tablespoon maple syrup in a small bowl until soft peaks form.

  3. Arrange 2 banana halves on each of 4 plates. Use an ice-cream scoop to divide vanilla and chocolate yogurt among the bananas. Drizzle the almond sauce over the yogurt. Divide raspberries, granola and peanuts among the banana splits. Top with the whipped cream.


To make your own chocolate yogurt, stir 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder into 2/3 cup vanilla strained yogurt.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
