Ingredients

1 banana, peeled and sliced

1 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced

1/4 cup raw old-fashioned oats

1/4 cup nut-size kernel cereal (recommended: Grape Nuts or Ezekiel)

1/4 cup bite-size shredded wheat

1/4 cup toasted whole grain wheat flakes and flaxseed cereal (recommended: Uncle Sam)

1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal

2 tablespoons raisins

2 tablespoons walnuts

1 grapefruit, halved

3/4 cup milk substitute of choice

Directions

  1. Toss the banana, kiwifruit, oats, cereal, shredded wheat, whole grain wheat flakes, ground flaxseed, raisins, and walnuts into a bowl. 
  2. After cutting the grapefruit in half, use a small, sharp knife to remove the segments. Add the segments to the top of the bowl and squeeze in the juice. Top the bowl with milk substitute.

Cook’s Note
