Our mother's told us, our grandmothers told our mothers and I'm sure that our great-grandmothers told our grandma's: they all knew that the most important meal of the day is breakfast. In the morning, you are literally "breaking" your "fast" with breakfast. This meal is so important because it refuels the body and kick starts the metabolism but we all know that the same old bowl of cereal can get boring so we have a great idea to add some excitement to this important morning meal. Let's have dessert for breakfast! Now we know what you're thinking, "doesn't that defeat the point?" Not when you're having a Peas of Mind, reinvented banana split! That's right, we're taking the classic favorite ice-cream shop treat and turning it into a nutrient-packed, fiber-rich breakfast.
Peas of Mind Reinvented Banana Split
• 1 banana peeled
• 1 TBL of butter
• 3 scoops of your favorite Greek yogurt
• Toppings of your choice (granola, raisins, etc)
Lay the peeled banana flat on a cutting board. Slowly slice the banana lengthwise into thin slices. Heat up a skillet and add the butter (the skillet should be hot enough to melt the butter almost immediately). Place the banana slices in the pan and after about 1 minute flip the banana carefully not to break the slices. Let the banana cook for about another minute. Remove from heat and let cool.
Top the slices with 3 scoops of yogurt and sprinkle generously with your chosen toppings. Now as you're serving this, don't forget to tell your kids that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should never be missed!
