4. Top with 3 hills of yogurt (1/3 ounces of yogurt on each hill)

6. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon chocolate chips.

7. Sprinkle with 1 oz of granola.

Recipe notes:

  • Using Greek Vanilla Yogurt will create a more stable scoop of yogurt, but vanilla yogurt can be used as well
  • If pre-plating, do not add granola until ready for service or serve separately.
  • If sending home as a grab and go meal, give students all the parts to prep and assemble banana yogurt split themselves. Leave banana whole with peel, as it will brown if peeled too far in advance.
