Keto as a Way of Life
Fruity “Cereal” Keto Smoothie Bowl
Cereal on Keto?! That ain’t right…. Is it?
Our keto Smoothie Bowl isn’t exactly cereal, but it tastes SO much like Fruity Pebbles, it will really take you back to a simpler time in life.
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 and went to give her a kiss for coming up with such an amazing idea!
When you’re on Keto, a kiss is really the only sugar you can have, but it’s better by far than the other stuff anyway. 😉
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 my young self 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 (you know, Smurfs, He-Man, Transformers, and GI JOE!) 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 clad loosely in my soft, Superman PJs, crunching happily 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 arists and wizards work, apparently. She had, thankfully, already beaten me to the punch and scribbled down some notes as she put this recipe together.
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)
Ingredients – Notes
The ingredients here are easy, so we don’t have a lot of notes to pass on to you. Just be careful with the extracts and don’t get too carried away with them. They can get a little tinny if you add too much.
Monkfruit is a wonderful, Keto-approved sweetener. Since we discovered it, we’ve started using it in everything that needs sweetness.
Monkfruit sweetener stands up well to the heat of baking, it tastes great and doesn’t have a bad aftertaste. It has no carbs, and actually contains a substance that is reported to help stabilize blood glucose levels.
Amazon is the most reasonably priced and convenient place we've found to purchase it.
Learn More About Sweeteners
Interested in learning a little more about sweeteners and where they rank for Keto?
We put together a handy chart of 55 sweeteners commonly used on the market today. The chart shows you which sweeteners are actually sugar, which ones are bad chemicals or natural, where they land on the Glycemic Index and more.
We also rank each sweetener on the list as Good, Bad, or Ugly for Keto.
Olive Nation Orange Emulsion
An emulsion is a vegetable gum base versus the alcohol base of an extract.
Flavors suspended in an alcohol base will become less prominant when cooked or baked.
Emulsions tend to retain more distinct flavors and that's important when you're balancing mulitple flavors in a recipe.
Instructions – Notes
Again, this recipe is easy. Put the ingredients in a blender, Ninja, food processor, etc and give them a whirl. Add your favorite toppings.
We LOVE our Keto Maple Granola for this!
Ninja Mega Kitchen System
We used to use the smaller Ninja to make smoothies, but the attachments that come with this system were too awesome not to get.
It's some wild combination of all the extra blades and the power of the larger unit that makes short work of anything you want to blend, chop, crush, puree, whatever! After we tried this bad boy out, we were hooked.
Ninja customer support is wonderful too. We broke the top on the blender (our fault) and they replaced it for us with one phone call; no charge! And they were super nice about it.
