Greek Yogurt Banana Split


I woke up this morning to this.

An Iowa Snow.  A snow day for everyone here locally, even the college students.  I decided that driving my 16 month old son around town today was unnecessary.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ALL DAY?

Well, we organized his baby clothes, and his books, cleaned out his closet And then made a special afternoon snack.

A snack that tasted wonderful and wasn’t all horrible for us.

A Greek Yogurt Banana Split!  

 

I just happened to have ingredients around that could be used to top a banana split.  My husband has been into making smoothies in the morning so we keep Greek yogurt and frozen berries around.

Before building our banana split ( we shared).  I made a simple chocolate syrup by

1) mixing together. 2 tablespoons of milk and  1 teaspoon  of cocoa. 

2) microwaving the mixture for 1 minute. 

3) stirring in 1 dark chocolate square. 

This method worked just fine.  I usually don’t keep things like chocolate syrup around the house.

I also microwaved the marshmallows before adding them to the sundae. Mini marshmallows are only 2 calories each.

I built the Greek yogurt banana split by slicing the banana and filling it with Greek yogurt and fruit.

I then topped it with the warm marshmallows, sprinkles and dark chocolate drizzle. and cereal ( I used toddler cereal. LOL)


This was an incredible treat considering I just used items I already had around the house!   Both my son and I enjoyed our snack.  We still had a lot leftover!

What a great treat!

  3. This is seriously a great idea. I love using Greek yogurt in cooking and I am just starting to like eating it plain. With all these yummy additions, I think I would love it.
