Cereal Killers

Sick of eating breakfast from a cardboard box? Sarah Cuthbert is here to liven up your morning routine with delicious new takes on cereal and milk – all you need is a bowl and spoon!


Gorgeous granolas

With everything you expect from a breakfast cereal, and everything you want from a biscuit, granola has fast become the classier cousin of muesli.

Boutique products at supermarkets and cafes can cost a pretty penny, but with some oats, nuts, fruit and a little imagination your breakfast bowl can become anything from a 10-minute almond and coconut number, to an Indian-inspired delight with blackberry and violet compote.

Pretty porridges

May your memories of lumpy grey stodge or watery gruel be gone – the next generation of porridge is here!

Think spelt, ginger and carrot for a warming Nordic start to the day, unleash your inner athlete with a quinoa coconut porridge, or indulge yourself in a luxurious Middle Eastern rose, cardamom and pistachio porridge.

There are plenty of options for those who are gluten or dairy free, too, with rolled spelt, millet and nut milk making an appearance.

Satisfying smoothie bowls

Eaten with a spoon instead of a straw, this powerhouse breakfast, popular in Hawaii and South America, often features açaí (pronounced ‘ah-sigh-ee’), a bright purple berry from the Amazon that has gained worldwide attention for its antioxidant and energy-boosting properties.

While smoothies can be served in jars, bottles or glasses, eating from bowls creates a canvas for crunchy toppings and brightly coloured fruits. The team at Green Kitchen Smoothies have even worked out ways to incorporate sneaky vegetables into the most important meal of the day!

Charming chia pudding

Don’t be alarmed by the frogspawn appearance that chia seeds create when added to liquid. These omega-3, fibre, calcium, zinc and iron-packed morsels might just become your next breakfast staple.

The best thing about chia is it’s so easy to prepare: just a handful of small black seeds quickly transforms to a picture-perfect parfait, a light Latin brunch or a filling fruit brekky in a jar!

Team your morning bowl with a mug of freshly brewed coffee and we guarantee you’ll never be reaching for the cardboard box again!
