Cereal Breakfast Shake

Breakfast Shake

The kid and I have a new favorite breakfast shake.

The first time I made this for him, he wasn’t really sure what to think. “Cereal in a milkshake is just weird, mom“, he whimpered as he sat there with a concerned look on his face, clenching his beloved Kellogg’s smacks box.

In all honesty, he’s a great sport and always willing to try my somewhat strange dinner concoctions or soup brews, but you don’t want to be messin’ with the kid’s cereal.

But then he tasted it… and loved every single sip.

 

Ingredients:

2 bananas
1/2 cup Kellogg’s honey smacks
2 cups milk
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
10 ice cubes

 

Directions:

Pour 2 cups of milk in a blender. Feel free to use skim milk, mine was 2%.
Breakfast Shake

Go for really ripe bananas. Starchy and sweet.
Breakfast Shake

Pour in the vanilla extract.
Breakfast Shake

Sprinkle in 1 1/2 to 2 tbsp sugar. This gives just enough sweetness for us.
Breakfast Shake

I tried several kinds of cereal, but this one just works best.
Breakfast Shake

Add 1/2 to 2/3 cup.
Breakfast Shake

Add the ice cubes. You can also use frozen bananas instead of ice cubes.
Breakfast Shake

Blend until the cereal has turned into teeny, tiny flecks.
Breakfast Shake

Really love this shake. It’s a fast, fresh and simple breakfast.

      Love this! I make a very similar one using chocolate Teddy Grahams where you use the cereal (I’m sure Teddy Grahams is a U.S. thing, but they’re just tiny bite-sized graham crackers). Honey Smacks is one of our grands’ favorites cereals, too, so I’m definitely going to make this for them on their next visit. They’ll love it, I’m sure!

      1. No, never heard of Teddy Grahams but we can’t even get the regular Graham crackers here. Oh, you have to try it… it’s really delicious.

      Oh, I could definitely go for one of these right about now. That’s it, I need a blender. 

      Your son is getting a great appreciation for food from his mom. Sounds like the recipe for a chef in the making :)

      What a great way to take your cereal on the go. Thanks for the ideas.

      Why on earth would you hide sugar smacks in a milkshake. Its the very thing you don’t want your kid to eat.  Well I don’t want my kid to anyway.  Put in some raw oatmeal and frozen berries.  So many good healthy recipes here this is a big disappointment

      1. Because he likes them and I like them?

        Hate to say it, but I’m not a health freak and only feeding my child raw oatmeal is really not my thing. Raw oatmeal is something I don’t even enjoy eating.

        Either way, fine if this is the way you eat, but to each their own. Good news is: no one’s holding a gun to your head and telling you to make this, so no worries.
