Keto as a Way of Life
Fruity “Cereal” Keto Smoothie Bowl
Cereal on Keto?! That ain’t right…. Is it?
I was hammering away at my keyboard, writing some kind of businessy balderdash, I’m sure, the first time Rebecca brought me this amazing smoothie bowl for breakfast. After taking the first, distracted bite, I quickly forgot about my work. I had to give her a kiss! When you’re on Keto, that’s really the only sugar you can have, but it’s better by far than the other stuff anyway, am I right?! One spoonful of this “keto cereal” and I was blown away at the flavor.
It tasted like waking early up on Saturday morning and tiptoeing to the kitchen to fix the only breakfast I knew how to make. Old excitement trickled into me anew, thinking about how I would sneak into the living room where our only TV resided because, yes, I’m that old. I was awash in memories of sitting as close as I could get to my beloved cartoons on the floor so I could keep the volume low, making sure not to wake up Mom and Dad; they slept in on Saturdays. Once again, I was loosely draped in my soft, Superman PJs, crunching softly on the wonderful, milk-soaked bits of sweet puffed rice that filled the bowl I held in my little hands as ‘The Super Friends’ declared their call for justice. My amazing, creative genius of a wife had captured the very essence of Fruity Pebbles!!!
After quickly slurping through half the bowl like a barn-raised heathen, I pleaded with her to write down the recipe. She often tools around in the kitchen and makes up these unbelievably marvelous dishes that even she can’t replicate. That’s just the way artists and wizards work, apparently. She had, thankfully, already beaten me to the punch and scribbled down some notes as she put this one together.
The flavor of the smoothie itself is unreal, but it’s the crunchy bits that she put on top that really made this smoothie bowl stand out. I’m one of those guys who enjoys the tactile experience of food almost as much as the flavor. So getting a little ‘crunchy chunk’ in each bite gives this fruity “cereal” flavored smoothie bowl the perfect texture to seal the deal in my mind (and my mouth!).
Most of the toppings she used are pretty straight forward, but one of my favorites is the Keto Maple Cinnamon Granola she makes. If you want to make this bowl right, make up a batch of that granola.
Pro Tip: Make extra. Trust me.
A Note from Rebecca
This smoothie bowl tastes exactly like Fruity Pebbles and milk. No, seriously. Every time I have it, I’m taken back to my childhood, laying in the floor, eating cereal and watching Saturday morning cartoons. (He-man and She-ra to be more specific) And the best part about it, 4 net carbs. If I were my Mom, I would say, “Yes, I shit you not.” Fat: 15.7 Protein: 7.2 Net carbs: 3.9
