One of Many Yummy Recipes: Breakfast Banana Split
2 Servings | Gluten-Free | Nut-Free | Vegan
Take a banana split to the breakfast table with this filling and nutritious meal. You can serve it to look like a traditional banana split, or you can serve it parfait-style. The coconut whips up best if you chill the mixing bowl and whisk or beaters in the freezer or in an ice bath for 30 minutes before using. You’ll need electric beaters or an electric whisk for this recipe.
1. Scoop out 3/4 cup of the solid cream from the refrigerated coconut milk can.
2. Put the coconut cream in a chilled medium-size mixing bowl. Whisk or beat the coconut cream for about a minute. It should look like whipped cream. Sometimes the cream looks curdled and grainy before whipping up—just keep whipping.
3. Fold in the vanilla extract and continue to beat on low speed until incorporated.
4. Peel the banana and slice lengthwise or into rounds. Place the sliced banana in a dish, add the coconut whipped cream, then add the berries and desired toppings.
1 (14-ounce) can full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated upside down overnight
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup mixed berries, fresh or frozen
¼ cup toppings (shelled hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, finely chopped nuts, shredded coconut)
