My middle son recently turned seven years old and I wanted to make him an extra special breakfast the morning of his birthday. He takes after his mama with his sweet tooth but I didn’t want to start our day on a bad note so I came up with this super fun, natural Breakfast Banana Split idea after shopping at my local Harris Teeter for natural and organic foods! Check out my video of my shopping trip:
I’m pretty much a Harris Teeter junkie-it’s my favorite grocery store because it carries so many of my favorite natural brands and always has beautiful produce to boot. They’ve recently revamped their natural foods department to make your wholesome favorites easier than ever to find. A quick trip down the aisles at my store and I could instantly pick out my organic favorite by their bright purple tags and see natural options marks in green-it’s so easy to find the best options for my family now!
So back to my little guy’s birthday….it was super fun to make him this extra special birthday breakfast with the goodies I picked up on my shopping trip. My guy’s a late sleeper so when I got up in the morning I popped a container of Yulu Vanilla Bean Yogurt into my freezer. I stirred it about every 20 minutes or so, replacing it in the freezer afterwards for an hour. It ended up with a frozen yogurt scoopable consistency! When I heard my son coming down the stairs I quickly split a banana, scooped the container of yogurt over top and topped with blueberries, Horizon Honey Snack Grahams and of course what birthday breakfast would be complete without some colorful sprinkles?
My birthday boy was SO excited to see his “dessert” for breakfast and I felt great knowing he was getting a balanced start to his special day! Wouldn’t this make the best start to any occasion-like the first day of school coming up soon for some?
