If you can’t tell, I love hot breakfasts – usually oatmeal, oatbran, or eggs and grits/oatbran. There’s just something satisfying about a big, warm meal in the morning to get me up and going.
Ever since I had my first breakfast cookie last week…all I can think about are cold breakfasts. In fact, I actually remembered to mix up another one last night.
This was is basically the same as the one I made last week – I didn’t want to mess with a great thing!
- 1/3 cup 5 grain cereal
- 1/2 banana, mashed
- 1 Tbsp crunchy pb
- 1 Tbsp Shaklee chocolate vitamin shake mix (I don’t have any protein powder so this is what I’ve been using)
I mixed up the cereal, banana, pb, shake mix, and cinnamon last night and spread it on this little salad plate to let it chill overnight in the fridge.
Then this morning, I topped it with:
- about 1/4 cup ricotta
- sliced strawberries
- more cinnamon
It may be the sudden heat wave we’ve been having or the fact that I’m not freezing cold when I get up and out of the shower in the morning, but I am loving this cold breakfast! I normally don’t eat cereal for breakfast just because I haven’t found any that hold me longer than 1 hour.
What’s your favorite cold breakfast?
I may need to extend my breakfast choices!
