Breakfast Banana Split
Adapted from C is for Cooking by Susan McQuillan
Here’s an easy breakfast combining fresh fruit, yogurt, and granola or cereal. Feel free to use whatever fresh fruits are available, depending upon the time of year.
1 honeydew or cantaloupe melon, halved and seeded
½ cup fresh pineapple or kiwi chunks
½ cup blueberries
¼ cup lemon yogurt
2 tablespoons honey (optional)
1 cup granola or other crispy cereal
With a lemon baller or ice cream scoop, make melon rounds. Set the balls on a baking sheet and place the sheet in the freezer.
In a small mixing bowl, toss the blueberries and pineapple. Fold in the yogurt.
Cut the bananas in half, crosswise. Cut each of these halves in half again, lengthwise. (Alternatively, slice the banana into circles and place in the cup as shown in the accompanying photograph.) Place 2 banana slices in the bottom of a cereal bowl. Top the bananas with the melon balls.
Add the pineapple mixture to each bowl. If using honey, drizzle it over the whole. Sprinkle each bowl with cereal.
