Ingredients

  • 1 medium banana, split lengthwise
  • ¾ cup plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt (non-fat; if you're accustomed to sweetened yogurt you'll probably prefer using those)
  • ¼ cup strawberries, diced (¼-½ inch/0.64-1.27 cm pieces; about 2 berries)
  • ¼ cup mandarin orange, peeled and chopped (fresh or from a drained can)
  • ¼ cup mango, peeled and chopped (¼-½ inch/0.64-1.27 cm pieces)
  • 1 kiwi, peeled and chopped (¼-½ inch/0.64-1.27 cm pieces)
  • 3 tablespoons blueberries
  • ¼ cup blackberries (about 5 berries)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  • Put the split banana in a bowl. Top with the yogurt.
  • Whisk the water and creamy peanut butter together. You can add more (or less) water if desired to get a good consistency for drizzling.
  • Drizzle a little of the peanut butter mixture on top of the yogurt. Pile on all of the fruits. (I hope you used a big enough bowl!)
  • Drizzle the rest of the peanut butter mixture on top of the fruits. Sprinkle with the toasted coconut.
  • Admire the beautiful breakfast you made and enjoy!

Notes

This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). I highly recommend using plain Greek yogurt or skyr here, as they have more protein than regular yogurt. You can lighten this dish up more by cutting back on the fruit. I recently made another version of this using ¾ cup (total) of strawberries for the fruit topping that was still pretty good.
Banana split low calorie
I also experimented with making a drizzle with peanut flour instead of regular old peanut butter (pictured above). Unfortunately, though it was lower in calories, I did not feel it passed the taste test. IMVHO I’d just stick with regular peanut butter for this one. It looks better drizzled on the dish as well.
