Recipe: Banana-Coconut Blender Cereal

This recipe is based on Chocolate-Covered Katie’s Banana Bread in a Bowl recipe. Although her recipe is perfectly delectable, you all know I am quite the recipe rebel. Hence, I whipped up a re-vamped version of Katie’s fabulous original. The end result is just like pudding!

glorious breakfast pudding

Banana-Coconut Blender Cereal

(Serves 1)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Kashi GoLean cereal
  • 2 T. nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, or cashews
  • 1 medium frozen banana
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk, such as almond-, hemp-, or rice milk
  • 1/2 t. coconut extract
  • dash of cinnamon
  • shredded coconut (optional)
  • coconut butter (optional)

Place all ingredients except the optional shredded coconut and coconut butter. Pour into a bowl and top with the aforementioned coconut-y toppings, if desired. Dig in!

    Caroline, I’m dying here! I am trying to resist buying coconut because I just eat it up so fast (by putting it on EVERYTHING), but this recipe is making that pretty darn difficult!
    But anyway. This sounds absolutely delicious. I would do almonds or almond butter for the nuts, because banana + coconut + almond = flava HEAVEN.
