Summer Cereal


Paleo Summer Cereal by

Summer is almost here! And the unofficial start of summer (Memorial Day) is just days away. To help you prepare for hot summer mornings, I thought I’d share my favorite cold breakfast recipe: sweet summer cereal.

This summer breakfast bowl is light but also filling. All you need to make a bowl of sweet summer cereal is: raw cereal, chopped fruit and milk (I use almond or cashew milk). What I love about my raw cereal recipe is that it’s so easy to make ahead of time. I keep this in a mason jar and scoop out a little every morning as needed. There’s absolutely no cooking involved.

While I do still enjoy a bowl of my warm paleo n’oatmeal on cool summer mornings, the truth is that once temperatures begin flirting with the 90s and 100s, my body begins to crave cold food. I start to want iced coffees, salads, ice pops, chilled vegetables and fruit.  That’s why if given the choice between cold summer cereal and warm paleo porridge – I’d choose cereal.

If you don’t make time for breakfast before running off to work – keep a jar of this cereal on your desk and some milk in the office fridge. I know eating at your desk isn’t ideal but, it’s better than working on an empty stomach. If you want more tips on how to eat healthy at work, check out these 5 tips.

You can use whatever milk you choose when making this cereal. If you want to use a homemade dairy-free milk, I have recipes for almond milk and coconut milk on the blog. You can adjust the amount of milk to taste. I typically mix ½ cup of cereal with 1 cup of milk.

Stay cool 🙂

    This was really tasty! I found the half cup of cereal per day ratio to be spot on as it is quite filling. I didn’t put nearly enough milk in it the first day though and the chia & flax soaked it all up reaaally quickly and it turned into Summer Goop (but it still tasted great!). I learned my lesson, more milk next time! Haha.

    Paleo cereals are so fun! I LOVE coconut chips, so I load mine with them (plus they are a bit lower calorie than nuts). I find the sliced almonds work really well too. I’ve never tried with the coconut sugar, but I should! mine is usually mixed with coconut oil and maple syrup, and baked for a few minutes.

    I’m making some paleo cereal next week! I’m getting tired of boiled eggs.
