Banana Yogurt Parfaits with Muesli - The Lemon Bowl

September is a fun time of year for our family but this year is especially wonderful. Our oldest boy just entered preschool for the first time and is getting ready to turn four in a couple days. Where has the time gone?

While it is a bit bittersweet, I am also really excited about this next stage and look forward to celebrating him this weekend. It seems like just yesterday he was rocking the baby mohawk.

Every year we have a birthday tradition that involves going out to breakfast, picking up his cake from the bakery and filling up balloons with helium for his party later in the day. This year we will be going to his favorite spot in town called Anna’s House that serves the most fun breakfast ever: granola banana splits.

Banana Yogurt Muesli Parfait Ingredients - The Lemon Bowl

We make these 5-ingredient, no cook yogurt banana splits all the time in our house – they have become a favorite with both of my boys.

My version is a bit healthier than the restaurant because I use unsweetened whole milk yogurt and unsweetened muesli.

For natural sweetness, we use whatever ripe berries we have on hand and a drizzle of honey. Maple syrup also works well or you could even get crazy and melt a little peanut butter to drizzle on top.

Happy Birthday my sweet boy! You light up my life every single day and I am so grateful to be your Mama.

Your fork is waiting.

      One tip I learned from Bjork of the Food Blogger Pro Podcast is that if you wait to launch something once it’s “perfect” you’ll launch too late. :)
