Berry Banana Split Bowl

Makes 2 bowls - This bowl is reminiscent of a childhood favourite and reminds me of those warm summer days growing up when I’d share a banana split with my siblings. The caramelised bananas are a tasty companion to the berries and coconut yogurt, while the other toppings will give you an energy kick. Perfect for children and adults alike, this bowl satisfies the sweet tooth in a slightly healthier way.
