5 Ways to Reinvent Your Breakfast Cereal

    Try one of these novel ways to eat your favorite crunch instead of using a bowl.

    Your beloved bowl of sugary cereal is about to receive a significant upgrade. Create donuts, waffles, and popsicles out of those staples to serve as legitimate breakfast treats.

    1. Fruity Pebbles Parfait

    Fruity Pebbles will give your morning yogurt some crunch in place of your usual granola. It takes only five minutes or less to prepare and is simple and colorful when served with a few slices of fresh fruit (we prefer banana, kiwi, and strawberry).


    • Fill the bottom of the glass with a thin layer of yogurt.
    • Layers of yogurt, cereal, and sliced fruit should be alternated. To avoid the fruits appearing color-blocked, only layer one fruit at a time.
    • Add one more layer of cereal to complete. If using, drizzle with the chocolate syrup. Offer chilled.


    • Greek yogurt in two cups
    • Fruity Pebbles cereal, 2 cups
    • 2 sliced bananas, 2 sliced kiwis, 1 38 cups cut strawberries, and chocolate syrup for sprinkling

    2. Milk & Cereal Smoothies

    Have you ever attempted to consume a bowl of cereal while traveling to work? Don’t. Instead, combine it with some yogurt, honey, and peanut butter in a blender. Breakfast on the fly has never been simpler.


    • Blend all ingredients in a blender until they are completely smooth.
    • Enjoy with extra cereal as a garnish.


    • a cup of milk
    • Yogurt, plain, one cup
    • Honey, two tablespoons
    • 12 cup of cereal with chocolate and peanut butter
    • 1 ice cup

    3. Fruit Loop Waffles

    You can even include cereal in your hot meals. Watch as they melt into your creation as you add some directly to the batter of your waffles (or pancakes!). And of course, put some more on top for some more crunch and color.


    • In a food processor, combine all of your cereal (reserving some for garnish) and pulse several times to create coarse crumbs.
    • In a bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
    • In a sizable bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, and butter together. Just blend the dry components with the wet ones after adding them gently. Sprinkle the cereal crumbs in.
    • Waffle makers should be filled with the necessary amount of batter and cooked until golden.


    • Milk and powdered sugar should be smoothed out in a bowl.
    • Place the waffles on a plate and garnish with additional cereal and glaze.



    • Fruit Loops cereal, 3 cups
    • All-purpose flour, 1 3/4 cups, and 2 tablespoons cornmeal
    • 1 tablespoon each of sugar and baking powder
    • 2 eggs and 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • two mugs of whole milk
    • 2 tablespoons of cooled unsalted butter


    • Whole milk, 4 tablespoons
    • 2 cups of granulated sugar

    4. Breakfast Popsicles

    With these epic popsicles, you can give the kids (or yourself) something completely unexpected. Match your favorite cereal with a scoop of your favorite ice cream to have some fun with them. Combine it all with some almond milk to create a portable treat that would be ideal in the morning heat.


    • Place the milk and cereal in a sizable bowl. Give this combination 10 to 15 minutes to rest.
    • In a bowl, liquefy two scoops of vanilla ice cream.
    • Melted vanilla ice cream and the cereal/milk mixture should be combined.
    • Popsicle molds with the ingredients inside should be placed in the freezer for 45 minutes. After that, take it out, put the sticks in, and freeze it again for four hours.


    • Twix cereal, two cups
    • 4 cups almond milk with vanilla.
    • 2 big vanilla ice cream scoops

    5. Cereal Donuts

    These brilliantly simple donuts are made with store-bought buttermilk biscuit dough, fried, and glazed with a straightforward three-ingredient sauce. Breakfast is ready when you top it with a variety of cereals.


    • Heat roughly 1 quart of oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit in a deep fat fryer or large saucepan.
    • Make 10 biscuits from the separated dough.
    • Using a small cookie cutter, make a hole in the middle of the biscuits.
    • Several biscuits at a time, fry in oil heated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 1/2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
    • On paper towels, drain.
    • (Optional) Add cinnamon sugar: Roll in sugar or a cinnamon and sugar mixture while still warm.


    Milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar should all be combined. Donuts should be glazed.


    • 7 12 ounces of buttermilk biscuits, sugar (4 tablespoons), or a cinnamon-sugar mixture, deep-frying oil (4 tablespoons sugar to 1 teaspoon cinnamon)


    • 2 cups of granulated sugar
    • milk, 1/4 cup
    • a single vanilla bean
