I love cereal. I love big bowls of granola with fruit like blueberries, strawberries, raisins, and bananas. I told you all how I enjoy Cascadian Farms granola with blueberries. This season, I’m experimenting with new cereal combinations.

Right now, these three are a hit.

1. Good Friends Cereal by Kashi with Cinnamon and Raisins

2. Alpen Muesli

3. Trader Joe’s High Fiber Multigrain Medley

#1 is a mix of fruit, oat clusters, flakes and a fun shaped star fruit looking barrel. #2 is flaky, grainy, nutty pieces and #3 is longer skinny barrel shapped pieces. I mix them together and take them with me for a snack. Combining these three variteties is delicious because it creates a good ratio of flavors and textures in my bowl, I get an awesome dose of fiber, I can add fruit, and the cereals aren’t too sweet, This mix gives me a good amount of sugar without overpowering my taste buds.

In the summer months, I enjoy my cereal cold and in the winter I put it in the microwave and make my own quick version of oatmeal. Try mixing your own varieties. Try it with Almond milk 🙂
