A protein packed smoothie bowl topped with cold cereal, fruit , chia seeds, and dried coconut for a healthy, nutritious, easy breakfast.
I won’t lie, I am kind of obsessed with smoothie bowls. I love how quick and easy they are to make, how easy they are to customize, and that they satisfy so many of my “breakfast” requirements without being drenched in syrup or full of added sugars. I like that they are also something you “eat” instead of drink. They just seem to stay with me longer than just drinking a smoothie would.
My husband grew up eating cereal for breakfast, and he pretty much only ever eats that. My kids also love cereal for breakfast. I want them to get all the nutritional value they need for a day at school, but don’t always have time to fix a big breakfast. I know they need protein to get some staying power. And I know they need it for cognitive function as well.
This tasty breakfast is our compromise. They get the cereal they love, and I get to make sure there is portion control, and lots of other good for them extras added in. Plus it is just plain fun.
I make a smoothie base, and let the kids add toppings. They get to use the cereals they love as toppers. I personally love the Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats, I crush them up a bit, and sprinkle them on the top of my bowl.
The beauty is in the simplicity. I make a base with protein packed greek yogurt, frozen fruit, and juice, I can add in greens, chia seeds, or protein powder if I want to make sure they get all the nutrition they need for the day. Then the kids get to top it with their favorite extras, including cereals (Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes, Frosted Mini Wheats, Rice Krispies, Corn Pops, Apple Jacks, & Krave are some of our favorites), chia seeds, nuts, fruits, etc. It is easy to change up for variety, and everything is stuff we keep on hand, so no special shopping trips required!
