A breakfast banana spilt might be considered a real treat but this healthier version can be eaten for breakfast – yes, really! This recipe replaces the usual ice cream and flavoured syrups for ingredients that are better for you, but taste just as delicious. This is such a simple recipe to put together with little helpers and it can be ready to eat in as little as 5 mins.


  • 1 large banana
  • 100g plain Greek yogurt
  • 3-4tsp strawberry jam or raspberry jam
  • generous sprinkle mixed nuts, chopped


  • First of all, you will need to peel the banana. Your child can take over this task.

  • Take the banana and use a tableknife to slice through the length of it. Try not to slice all the way through to the other side, but just enough to open up the banana.

  • Place the split banana onto a serving dish. If the banana falls over, simply cut a tiny slice from the underside to flatten the base.

  • Now your helper can spoon the Greek yogurt over the banana.

  • If you wish to drizzle the jam over the yogurt, you can either use a bottle of squeezy jam or simply warm the jam for a few seconds in the microwave until it becomes runny. Alternatively, you can just use it straight from the jar and spoon it straight over the top!

  • Your child can now sprinkle the mixed nuts over the top of the yogurt and banana. Serve straight away.
