Banana Yogurt Split

This is a super easy, and healthy, twist on an old favorite of a banana split. To make this one, you’ll need some bananas, other fruit, granola, honey or shredded chocolate, nuts, and your favorite kind of yogurt. To make this recipe vegan, try coconut or almond milk yogurt, I found a great one, it’s unsweetened and will be perfect with fruit.

Cut in the middle the length of the banana.

Set in a bowl or dish, with some space in between.

Add yogurt, fruit and granola in between the banana slices.

Add a dash of honey or shredded chocolate for a tasty topping.

And don’t forget the crushed walnuts!

Enjoy! This is perfect for a sweet summer treat, that also has a healthy twist.

Cayenne Pepper Hot Chocolate

Treat yourself to a sweet dessert drink with a kick.

Prepare your hot chocolate as normal. I prefer to use Almond Milk instead of regular milk, but that’s just my preference, so get 1 cup of that, and bring to a boil. In your mug, mix together hot chocolate mix, it’s the easiest thing, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and a dash of cayenne pepper, you can add more or less depending on your tastes.

Pour the milk into the mug once boiling, and mix well, then enjoy!
