Fruit Cereal Smoothie

20 Jul

Yes, you read correctly. Cereal. Smoothie. I know, it’s pretty rad, and you HAVE to try it!

If you’re anything like me, you like your mornings fruity and your smoothies thick enough to need a spoon. Bring forth the Cereal Smoothie.

This dish has become one of my breakfast staples. What’s great about it is it’s completely customizable, I make it different every time. This morning it was berry-based. My favorite is adding a whole peach, it creates a perfect smooth and thick texture. But one thing is for sure about this, it’s healthy! Turning solid food into liquid food is much easier on your digestive system, freeing you some energy for your day!

General ingredients to blend:

  • 1/2-1 frozen banana
  • handful of berries (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries)
  • 3/4 -1 cup of non dairy milk
  • 3/4 cup of cereal (I use bran flakes and fiber-o’s)
  • sweetener and/or spices (stevia, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc)
  • 1 tbs chia seeds or flax
  • squeezed juice from half an orange (optional, for more fruity taste)

You can simplify and just use frozen banana, it’s like banana bread in a bowl. Same goes for pumpkin. My favorite is peach and banana. You can add soy-yogurt, or juice instead of milk. The list goes on. Maybe if you’re like me and you have one of these little guys keeping you company while you experiment. 🙂

Do you have any pets who like to watch you in the kitchen too?
