Have a dessert-inspired morning with this vegan banana split breakfast bowl. It’s loaded with dairy-free yogurt, caramelized bananas, fresh berries, cacao nibs and grain-free granola. Vegan, gluten-free and kid-friendly! This post is sponsored by Silk.
I get asked frequently about a good substitute for regular yogurt and until recently I hadn’t tried any dairy-free yogurt options that I absolutely loved. That changed when Silk reached out to me about trying their new dairy-free almondmilk yogurt alternative. There are 5 delicious flavors including: plain, vanilla, strawberry, peach and dark chocolate coconut. Each one has 5-6g of protein from almond butter and offers a smooth, creamy texture. I was pumped to find a couple flavors at my local Kroger and pleasantly surprised by the texture and flavor. It’s definitely the best dairy-free yogurt I’ve tried and I like that the ingredient list is really short.
With this banana split breakfast bowl you can use whichever flavor you prefer. For minimal sugar, definitely go with the plain version (it only has 6 grams). I used the vanilla almond, because my store was out of the plain. If you enjoy sweeter breakfasts the vanilla almond will be right up your alley.
This bowl looks fancy, but it takes just minutes to prep. Simply toss your bananas in a pan with coconut oil so they get a little caramelization, add your toppings and enjoy. I choose to top mine with fresh, seasonal berries, cacao nibs, my grain-free granola and a drizzle of almond butter but feel free to play around with your favorite breakfast bowl toppings! Although, I highly recommend the granola. It’s SO good!
I’m calling this a banana split breakfast because I love the idea of a spruced up breakfast bowl and most people don’t consider fruit and yogurt a dessert. That said, when you use the vanilla almond flavor this banana split is totally dessert-worthy. Especially with the caramelized bananas!
Isaac and I actually ended up splitting one of the banana split breakfast bowls for dessert one night and we both absolutely loved it. The vanilla almond yogurt tasted like a melty whipped cream, which makes me want to try using it instead of whipped cream with strawberry shortcake!
