Breakfast Split

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 twelve-hour “fast” with breakfast.  This meal is so important because it refuels the body and kick starts the metabolism but the truth is, the same old bowl of cereal can get boring.  So Peas of Mind is here to add some excitement and fun 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 breakfast.

Peas of Mind Reinvented Banana Split:

  • 1 Banana peeled
  • 1 TBS of butter
  • 3 Scoops of your favorite greek yogurt
  • Toppings of your choice (i.e.: granola, raisons, 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.  As you’re serving this nutritious banana split to your kids, don’t forget to say (in your best, wise mother voice) “now children, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should never be missed!”
