High Energy Protein Packed Banana Splits are packed with fruit & berries, and a lot of protein which really satisfies those sweet cravings.

🙊WHY are Bananas one of my favorite foods?
Bananas are a nutritious fruit that offer numerous health benefits due to their richness in essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants:

🍌Rich in Potassium: Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, an essential mineral that helps maintain healthy blood pressure, promotes bone health, and supports muscle function.

🍌Good Source of Fiber: Bananas are a good source of dietary fiber, which can help regulate bowel movements, prevent constipation, and support healthy digestion.

🍌Antioxidant Properties: Bananas contain antioxidants, such as vitamin C and phenolic compounds, that help protect the body against free radicals and oxidative stress.

🍌Supports Heart Health: The potassium, fiber, and antioxidants in bananas can help support heart health by reducing the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke.

🍌Aids in Weight Management: Bananas are low in calories and high in fiber, making them a good addition to a weight loss diet.

🍌Supports Healthy Bones: Bananas are a good source of several minerals, including potassium, calcium, and magnesium, that are essential for maintaining healthy bones.

🍌Can Help with PMS Symptoms: Bananas are a good source of vitamin B6, which can help alleviate symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), such as mood swings and bloating.

🍌Supports Healthy Gut Bacteria: Bananas contain prebiotic fibers that can help feed good gut bacteria, promoting a healthy gut microbiome.

🍌Can Help Lower Blood Pressure: The potassium content in bananas can help lower blood pressure by counteracting the effects of sodium and promoting healthy blood vessel function.

🍌Supports Healthy Skin: Bananas are rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants that can help protect the skin from damage, promote collagen production, and support healthy skin aging.

Overall, bananas are a VERY nutritious fruit that can be a great addition to a healthy diet.

High Energy Protein Packed Banana Splits are very interchangeable as far as the toppings go, so grant yourself full creative and personal freedom to make something your family will LOVE!

-> I used “Just Ingredients” protein powder in vanilla flavor for this recipe.

Why is the Just Ingredients Protein Powder & collagen our FAVORITE option?

The protein comes from 5 sources: 100% super high-quality grass-fed whey, pea protein, pumpkin seed, chia seeds and collagen.

There is a lot less whey compared to normal protein powders so it may be easier on the stomach than other protein powders!
• Free from sugar, gluten, artificial sweeteners or any artificial ingredients.

I love including protein and healthy fat in our breakfast, snacks, treats, and desserts because both protein and fat are very satisfying macronutrients. When we feel nicely satisfied, we’re less likely to overeat.

🍯Sweetness factor is a very personal taste preference, so you may want to use more or less raw honey or pure maple syrup, depending on YOUR family’s specific taste preferences.

➡️When shopping for ingredients:
Look for a higher percentage of cacao for the chocolate chips, and always read through the ingredients.

There are usually lots of questions about chocolate brands – I like to visit the specialty (nicer) chocolate section at the stores and find a really high quality, (often organic) dark chocolate bar on SALE – so I’m often trying something different and new because the sales dictate my purchase.

🍫A high-quality dark chocolate bar works great too! I’ll often find a beautiful organic dark chocolate bar on sale, then chop it up to use for things like this.

I like to buy the highest quality I can find when it’s on SALE! I’m always keeping an eye out for a good deal and will often stock up when a high-quality product is on special.

Use any dark chocolate chips of your choice: the higher cacao percentage = more health benefits.

Health Benefits of Nuts:
Healthy Fats: Nuts are rich in healthy fats like monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which are easily converted into energy.

4 servings


  • 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups Greek yogurt or cottage cheese
  • 4 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 2 Tbsps ground flaxseed
  • 2 Tbsps raw honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs


In a bowl, add the sunflower seeds, walnuts, almonds, and cashews. Cover with water then stir in your sea salt. Cover tightly and allow to soak on the counter overnight.

Once ready to serve, drain the nuts and place them in a food processor. Chop them, but just with a few pulses; we don’t want to be ground too much.

In a separate bowl, combine your yogurt, protein powder, flaxseeds, and honey.

Whisk until very smooth.

Peel and slice the bananas and place in a serving platter as shown.

Top the bananas with dollops of your protein-yogurt mixture and sprinkle with the hydrated nuts, fresh raspberries and chocolate chips.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
