Banana Split Breakfast

This is such a clever idea. Do you love banana splits? Now you can have one for breakfast or lunch. 

However instead of the ice cream, substitute a scoop of cottage cheese or Greek yogurt . 

You can still use a banana and add any fruit and or that nuts you like to make a healthy delicious breakfast treat. See all the interesting healthy combinations.
