Banana Split with yoghurt and jam


imageThis is such a neat little idea for a healthy twist on an old favourite! If you don’t want to use jam (which can be high on sugar) you could use a little honey. The berries and nuts can be adapted for whatever you like, or have spare in the cupboard.

Serves 1

1 ripe yet firm banana, peeled
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons fruit jam or preserves
2 tablespoons sliced almonds or other nuts
1/4 cup fresh blueberries or other fresh fruit

Split the banana lengthwise and lay the two halves in a shallow bowl. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the yogurt and put it on top of the banana. Warm the jam in the microwave for 15 to 30 seconds or until it is very runny.

Use a spoon to drizzle the jam over the yogurt, and sprinkle the nuts over everything. Top with the blueberries, and dig in!
