FOOD TIP OF THE DAY: Breakfast Banana Split
For a healthy and festive breakfast, split a ripe banana, add two or three small scoops of cottage cheese topped with different flavors of yogurt and different fresh fruits.
Sprinkle with granola or cereal flakes and you have a delicious “banana split.” (It’s a variation on a yogurt parfait.)
Or, try this recipe from Del Monte (find many more Del Monte recipes on Fruits.com):
