This Red White & Blueberry Banana Split is the perfect quick and easy snack for Independence Day.
July 4th is a week from tomorrow! Aside from Thanksgiving, 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. Growing up, I always spent the day at my grandparents’ house and we would make the short walk down to the park to watch the parade and see some vendors. Later in the day, we’d return for the carnival, and of course take in some fireworks. The time in between was always spent eating a snack (and probably another snack). Today’s recipe is the perfect snack for a day like the 4th of July, whether you spend it in a park, on the beach, in the mountains, or anywhere else. Bonus: It’s easy. It’s so easy I’m not sure it can really be classified as a recipe. Try it out!
1 Banana, Sliced
1/4 c. Greek Yogurt
2 Strawberries, Sliced
1/4 c. Blueberries
2 tbsp. Unsweetened Coconut Shavings
1 tbsp. Dark Chocolate Chips
Place banana slices in a bowl and top with Greek yogurt
Add sliced strawberries and blueberries on top of yogurt
Sprinkle with coconut shavings and dark chocolate chips
This snack is also great post workout! The carbs from the fruit combined with the protein from the yogurt make the perfect pair while the chocolate chips and coconut shavings add just a touch of sweetness. If you try this snack out, I’d love to know your thoughts on it!
