Breakfast Banana Boats

This is one of those recipes that really isn't a RECIPE...I give you the list of ingredients and you can make it however you want to. I caught my family off guard one morning when came to the table thinking they were getting "fruit and yogurt" for breakfast, but instead I had made this  scrumptious twist on the ordinary plain "Fruit and Yogurt" that everyone is use to. It was received with a lot of "Yuuuummmms" from many mouths....guess it was a hit! I liked that it was easy and light for summer time. It was refreshing and can be made to suit every taste bud....give it a try with your family.

Breakfast Banana Boats  
Banana's (a must because they are called "Banana boats"....)
Yogurt
Whipped topping

Ingredient Ideas:
Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, nuts, raisons, craisons, granola, coconut, maraschino cherries, blackberries, small cubed apples, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, diced cantaloupe, diced honeydew melon, diced mango's, halved grapes, sliced kiwi....(the possibilities are endless...pick whatever you want)

Slice banana's in half lengthwise and place in a narrow bowl (or whatever you have). Top with fruit of your choice, then add yogurt and whipped topping, sprinkle with granola.

*these would make up really nice for a family reunion, camping trip or just a quick breakfast before heading out the door. You can serve 50 people or 1 person...its very versatile. They would be great during the summer, but taste just as good during the winter months....It's a nice break from a heavy breakfast. 

Happy Cooking~

  2. This was a fun breakfast and pretty to look at. I made the mistake of buying pre-cut melon which is never as good as when you cut it yourself.
