4 Ways To Take Your Breakfast Cereal To Another Level

I find myself skipping breakfast on many occasions (I know, I know, I should eat breakfast). But normally the kind of breakfast I want to actually eat takes too long to make before I have to get to work, and I’m so tired of plain, old, boring cereal. Sooo, I’ve been coming up with ways to spice up your breakfast routine; two of which involve easy frozen treats! I told you I wasn’t going to let Summer slip away without squeezing in a few more popsicles. There are 4 ideas total and I’ve giving you all of the recipes and how-to’s below. So hurry up, you’ve still got time to whip up a edible cereal bowl before breakfast is technically over!

The cereal shot glasses are first up on the list and they are actually the healthiest of the four. Not only are these filled with milk and cereal, but I may have snuck in some bananas and greek yogurt too. So if you have a picky eater in the family, serve these for breakfast with a little bit of milk inside and they’ll never know they’re eating so many healthy ingredients. If you want to go wild like I did and counteract their healthy qualities, you can add a vanilla milkshake shot inside and top it with a little whipped cream!

Next up are my personal favorites, the CEREAL BOWLS! These are so incredibly easy to make and would be great for not only breakfast, but dessert too. Throw some ice cream in there, and you’ve got yourself a nice little sundae! The cereal bowls are the least healthy of the 4 because they use chocolate to form the base of the bowl, but they’re still a fun way to eat breakfast and they are even more fun to make. (You get to play with balloons to make them! Everyone knows balloons are an Aww Sam favorite!)

   

For the popsicles and the shot glasses:


Shot glass mold (I bought mine from Michaels)
Popsicle mold
1-2 bananas
1 cup milk
1 cup greek yogurt
1 cup cereal

For the cereal bars:


5 oz of marshmallows
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
4 cups cereal
9″ round cake pan

For the cereal bowls:


1 1/2 cups white chocolate
2 cups cereal
5 inch balloons

 







For the popsicles and the shot glasses:


1. Put the banana in a large bowl and mash until it is smooth and you have gotten out most of the lumps. 
2. Add in the greek yogurt and milk and mix well. 
3. Carefully fold in the cereal, being careful not to crush any of it. 
4. Pour the mixture into the molds and place in freezer for an hour or until set. 

For the cereal bars:


1. Grease the cake pan. Melt the butter on low in a small saucepan.
2. Once melted, add in the marshmallow and stir until completely melted. 
3. Add in the cereal and mix until it is fully covered in the marshmallow mixture.
4. Butter your hands and put the cereal and marshmallow mixture into the cake pan, pushing it down to compact it and flatten it in the pan. 
5. Allow to cool and dry completely before cutting and eating. 

For the cereal bowls:


1. Inflate a 5″ balloon and wash the outside thoroughly. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler.
2. Once chocolate has melted, dip the balloon into the chocolate until you have enough chocolate covering the balloon that it takes on the shape of a bowl.
3. Quickly roll the chocolate part of the balloon in the cereal, making sure to coat all sides. 
4. Place in the refrigerator for ten minutes or until the chocolate has dried. 
5. Pop the balloon and remove it from the chocolate to reveal your cereal bowl!

The cereal bar is essentially a rice krispie treat, but with a twist! Nobody ever said this kind of breakfast bar was limited to only rice krispies, so we’re adding in our favorite cereal or you can even mix it up and make one with multiple different kinds of cereal at once. And they only take about 5 minutes to make, which is only a little longer than it would take you to pour yourself a bowl of cereal.

Last on the list are the cereal popsicles. They are made with the same base ingredients as the shot glasses (so they’re just as healthy), but they’re better for an on-the-go meal when you’re a little rushed in the morning. 

Hopefully I’ve inspired some new thoughts about your breakfast routine and you’re ready to try the breakfast cereal shot glass and milk shot tomorrow morning! I know I’ll be finishing off the rest of the cereal bars for my breakfast treat this morning (and I’m not sharing)!
