Why You Will Love This Cereal Smoothie

Whilst a cereal smoothie may sound a bit weird, don’t judge it until you try it!

One day I was in the rush and didn’t have time to sit down and eat my bowl of cereal, so I decided to throw things in a blender and this is how this cereal smoothie came to life!

I absolutely loved it. This is why I am sharing this recipe.

Here’s why I think you will love it:

  1. Delicious Flavor: The cereal is combined with creamy and sweet banana which creates a satisfying sweet smoothie.
  2. Refreshing: This smoothie is perfect for a refreshing breakfast.
  3. Versatility: With the option to use any cereal of choice, this smoothie can be customized to fit different flavor preferences, whether you prefer something fruity, nutty, or even chocolatey.
  4. Creamy Texture: The use of frozen fruit and low-fat milk gives the smoothie a smooth and creamy texture, making it a luxurious treat that’s still easy to sip on.
  5. Fun to Make: This smoothie is simple and fun to make, which can be a great activity for families, especially allowing kids to choose and add their favorite cereals.
  6. Perfect for Breakfast on the Go: Its ease of preparation makes it ideal for busy mornings, providing a quick breakfast solution that you can take with you when in a rush.
  7. Appealing to All Ages: The familiar taste of cereal blended with the popular flavors of banana and strawberry makes this smoothie appealing to both children and adults alike.

If you enjoy this ‘weird’ smoothie, I recommend that you also try my tahini smoothie and my red bull smoothie!

For that reason, I suggest that you avoid using a lower-speed blender if possible. 

Cereal Smoothie Recipe FAQs:

Can I Make This Smoothie Dairy-Free?

Yes, you can easily substitute the low-fat milk with any non-dairy milk like almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk to make it dairy-free while maintaining a creamy texture. Also ensure you use a dairy-free protein powder.

Can This Smoothie Be Made in Advance?

While it's best enjoyed fresh, you can make it in advance. Prepare the smoothie, store it in the fridge, and give it a good mix or a quick re-blend before drinking to refresh its texture and consistency.

How Should I Store Leftover Smoothie?

Store any leftover smoothie in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Shake or stir well before serving as separation may occur.
