Healthy banana split with turmeric, yogurt, peanut butter, and berries: a perfect light dessert or breakfast.

Feel like having something sweet yet low-calorie and low-sugar? Well, this healthy banana split might be the perfect solution.

This was my biggest revelation during this Turmeric Paste series. I liked all the other dishes a lot, very much indeed, but this banana split with peanut butter is my personal favorite.

I had actually made it for breakfast one morning, inspired by a recipe I saw in an older issue of Good Food magazine and I liked it so much, I kept making it again and again during the following weeks. At the moment it is my “to-go” recipe whenever I need something sweet yet healthy.

How to make?


  • I use my beloved Turmeric Paste for Golden Milk to make the “dressing” for this dessert, which I simply stir into the yogurt. I do recommend taking the extra 15 minutes to make the turmeric paste.
  • However, if you don’t feel like doing it, you replace it by stirring about ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder directly into the yogurt. Add a bit of grated ginger and a tiny sprinkle of black pepper, the turmeric paste does contain these two ingredients and they do give the yogurt the extra kick.
  • Fruit: a large banana and some raspberries, fresh or frozen. You can use any other berries you like.
  • Otherwise: flaked almonds (or other nuts), peanut butter, honey or maple syrup, cinnamon.
  • You can top the healthy banana split with cocoa nibs and chia seeds, if you wish.

Otherwise, a very easy recipe, which can be made in less than five minutes and which will leave you completely satisfied. Do give it a try, I am sure you will not be disappointed.

I like desserts that are low in sugar, so this one is really great. I know you didn't use sugar, but for me sugar or honey it's the same thing. I will keep this dessert in mind as I've started to eat yogurt a bit more often.
