This recipe specifies chocolate granola, which is made with added cocoa powder (some also have chocolate chips).

It’s available from brands like Cascadian Farm, Kind, Love Grown, Nature’s Path, and Purely Elizabeth, among others.

Of course, you can use regular granola instead of the chocolate granola in the recipe.

And if you don’t have granola, you can substitute one of your favorite breakfast cereals (we’ve used both Cheerios and Corn Flakes).

If you don’t want a coconut garnish, you can substitute crushed nuts or dried berries: blueberries, cherries, or cranberries.
Ingredients Per Serving

  • 1 banana
  • 2-3 Scoops of watermelon from half a watermelon (ideally seedless)
  • 1/3 cup chocolate granola
  • 1/2 cup berries of choice (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)
  • 1/2 cup strawberry yogurt (or flavor of choice)
  • Garnish: coconut shreds

    1. PEEL the banana and split it lengthwise into two halves. Arrange on plate/bowl.

    2. USE an ice cream scoop to scoop into half a watermelon. Place three scoops of watermelon on top of the banana.

    3. ADD the granola, berries, and garnish. Spoon the yogurt yogurt on top and optionally, around the sides of the plate or bowl.
