Banana ‘Cereal’ with Chocolate Almond Milk

I’m still trying new ‘cereal’ variations, and loving each of them. I’m consuming healthier, lighter foods this time if year, eating more salads, trying new smoothies, and enjoying simple ‘cereals’ and smoothie bowls. And I’m feeling a lot better, in both body and mind. The ‘cereals’ I eat are simple, and pack a good nutritional punch in the morning.

I do like to treat myself once-in-a-while, so today I decided to use chocolate almond milk with my ‘cereal’.


1 small banana, peeled and sliced

2 – 3 tablespoons of fruit and chocolate trail mix

1/2 cup chocolate almond, milk

  1. Place the fruit in a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle the trail mix over the fruit.
  3. Pour milk over the fruit and almonds.


  • Use different types of fruit, such as apples and pears with a few blueberries.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with homemade vegetable juice and eggs.

      Thank you! I love these healthy versions of ‘cereals’ because they are light and pack so many good nutrients into the start of my day. My family and I are doing well. I hope you and yours are as well. Have a wonderful day!

    You could also use yogurt, as I do. I’m liking these “recipes” to give me more ideas. Mostly, I just use muesli or Kashi cereal (there’s one I love and buy once or twice a year).
