If a banana split isn't a good enough reason to get out of bed in the morning, I don't know what is! Trust me, I have days when I need all the inspiration in the world to crawl out from under my covers. I've found that making—and then of course enjoying—a breakfast banana split is an excellent reason to get out of bed.

This is quite simple, and though it sounds decadent, it's really not much different from your typical yogurt cup with fruit. And it's just way more fun!

Mix and match toppings to make whatever you want. The basic recipe is below. I'll create a few fun flavor combinations for you soon. If you make a breakfast banana split, let me know in the comments what toppings you used. I'd love to have some new ideas for those mornings I need even more inspiration to rise and shine.
