I never thought that I would make my own cereal. However, I read a recipe for a Quinoa cereal and tried it. The great thing about Quinoa: It takes on the flavor of whatever you throw in it. In this case, cinnamon.
Here's the recipe. I modified it a little. I used water (no milk). I also made enough for a week's worth of cereal. After I made it, I stored it in the refrigerator.
The cereal below has strawberries, walnuts, quinoa, and I added milk.
No need for a recipe: Throw the fruits in that you enjoy. I call mine the "Kitchen Sink Fruit Smoothie" - Blueberries, blackberries, apples, oranges, strawberries, some ice and whey protein. Now, sit back, relax and enjoy.
It's great for "breakfast on the run". Make it the night before, place in refrigerator, and just re-mix it in the morning.
By the way, the store-bought smoothies contain a lot of sugar and might not have real fruit. Make it at home.
