How to Make A Banana Split Yogurt
Full directions for this dessert are in the printable recipe card below.
Start by peeling and slicing your banana in half and place it in your banana split bowl.
Then scoop up your yogurt, and make 3 mounds (use an ice cream scoop for the ice cream look) like you would scoops of ice cream in a traditional banana split.
Next, add on your toppings, and then serve up a fresh fruit split.
Best Type Of Yogurt To Use
Honestly, you can use any brand or flavor of yogurt you like. If you need a non-dairy yogurt reach for a coconut milk yogurt or even almond milk. To add in more protein reach for Greek yogurt.
Feel free to pick and choose what you want. I used two different flavors of yogurt, but you don’t have to do that if you don’t want to. I thought it just made it look more like a banana split.
Can I Make This In Advance
Unfortunately, these splits don’t store well. The reason being is the bananas are fragile and they will brown up after they are peeled and sliced. You can dice up all the fruit and store it in the fridge, to speed up the prep process if you want.
But these yogurt splits need to be assembled right before eating.
Tips For Making This Banana Split Yogurt Dish
- Cut the fruit into bite-size pieces.
- Just remember the banana will brown fast once cut. So serve this up shortly after you assemble it.
- Use any flavor or brand of yogurt you would like.
- To get the ice cream look, use an ice cream scoop for scooping up the yogurt.
- Have fun with the toppings you choose to use. Or let your kids assemble their own banana splits.

We asked a local ice cream shop if we could have a couple banana split bowls and they happily gave us some.
BUT, I think I'm going to get something on Amazon like these, instead, so I can always have them on hand.
My children LOVED this breakfast so much, so I know I will make it again.
Tip: I found that yogurt freezes rock hard!! I literally had to thaw it for about 45 minutes before I could scoop it. So, be sure to plan for this when you are making your breakfast banana splits!
Cut a banana lengthwise and place on either side of the bowl. Scoop three scoops of yogurt. I used vanilla and strawberry. Chop fruit into bite size pieces and sprinkle on the scoops of yogurt. Add granola and whipped cream. Top with cherries and sprinkles, if desired.
