    "to go" in a recipe book

    When "to go" appears as the name of a recipe in a recipe book, what does it mean?
    For example, "Quick Banana Berry Breakfast to Go"?

    I know "to go" in AmE ("take away" in BrE) means to bring food/drink home from a fast food restaurant etc., instead of eating/drinking it there. But it doesn't seem to apply in this case because you cook it at home. Does it mean to bring it outside, for example, to school or work?

    Yes - though you would take it to school or work.
