Breakfast banana split topping ideas

There are so many different toppings you can add to your breakfast banana split! Here are some ideas to get you started.

Expert tips

  • Use a banana that is the right ripeness. This will depend on your personal taste. I like my bananas completely yellow with no brown spots on them.
  • Use a thick yogurt. I recommend Greek yogurt because it is thick. If you use a thin yogurt, it will spread too much on the plate.
  • Use any flavour of yogurt you love. I like plain yogurt, but if you love vanilla or fruit-flavoured yogurt you can use that too!
  • Add any toppings you love. I listed some great topping options above, so feel free to play around and add any toppings you love to your banana split!
