“Caramelized” Banana Berry Breakfast Bowl

Santa Monica Pier

I’m about to go off to college in a new state. I realized the other day that now was the best time to appreciate my hometown, Santa Monica. We all tend to take our home town for granted, but I know mine has a lot to offer. So when I visited the pier recently, I took my camera along to capture every moment.

I kind of felt like a tourist, taking pictures of everything. But that was my way of experiencing my city in its full glory.

Another thing I’ll miss about being home is being able to cook more often than I expect to in college. To fully enjoy my current kitchen privileges, I made this dish this morning for breakfast.

Bananas and berries go together like a match made in heaven. This easy cheat to a “caramelized” banana pairs it with blueberry Greek yogurt, fresh strawberries, and dried cranberries for a fruity fiesta! Enjoy this balanced breakfast of fiber, protein and just the right dose of sweetness.

“Caramelized” Banana Berry Breakfast Bowl

serves one


  • 1 large banana
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 6-8 fresh strawberries
  • one container of Greek blueberry yogurt
  • one single-serving box of Craisins


Freeze yogurt until it has a soft frozen consistency (about 30 minutes.)

Wash and cut up strawberries. Arrange in serving bowl.

Spray a medium pan with nonstick cooking spray. Cut banana into two to three pieces, and place on pan.

Turn heat to medium. Drizzle honey over banana pieces. Turn over when slightly browned, and brown the other side.

Remove from heat. Place banana in serving bowl. Scoop frozen yogurt on top, and sprinkle with Craisins.

  1. I think you should give me that bowl as a parting gift.

  2. Cooking the bananas that way sounds interesting. Time-consuming, but interesting.

    1. It actually only takes a couple minutes.
