Top Ideas for Delicious Cereal Toppings
Rise and shine with a breakfast you can have ready in seconds and so delicious that it will put a smile on your face. The secret? Cereal toppings.
Cereal toppings for a protein breakfast
Whether you’re after a protein breakfast or just want to jazz up the morning meal, here is how to top up your favourite cereals with nutrients that will set up the whole family for the day ahead.
Chopped nuts for a crunchy breakfast
Add protein to your bowl of cereals with a crunchy addition. Cashews, almonds and walnuts are not only tasty, but they also add protein to your diet. So why not take crunchiness to a new level and add your favourite nuts to a bowl of Shreddies? Or pair it up with the chocolate fest in our Lion cereal for a delicious breakfast.
Peanut butter for a smooth nutty flavour
The nutty flavours in a scoop of peanut butter make a good pair with breakfast cereals. Add it to milk and dissolve it in the pan over medium heat before pouring it over your favourite cereals! Or mix it with fruit and add it as a cereal topping.
Top it up with yogurt for extra protein
Yoghurt is a great cereal topping as it provides a source of protein and calcium. Whether you like the classic Shredded Wheat or you can’t get enough of the tongue-tingling Curiously Cinnamon Bites, add a scoop of plain Greek yogurt and start tucking into your bowl of cereals for a breakfast with added protein and flavour.
Fruits as Cereal Toppings
The natural sweetness of the banana is enough of a good reason to add a few slices to your favourite cereals. But it’s the fibre content in this beloved fruit that makes it such a popular ingredient for breakfasts. Win-win!
Sprinkle blueberries on top of a GoFree bowl of cereal, add them to the honey-flavoured Golden Nuggets or pair them with the malty Shreddies. Either way, they're a delicious cereal topping to enjoy with the wonderful flavour of our fortified cereals.
Strawberries are one of the most popular cereal toppings, but they’re well-worth the hype. A handful of these berries provide a dose of vitamin C, not to mention the unmistakeable flavour. Cut them in half for bite-sized portions.
Don’t be fooled by their size. Raisins are naturally sweet so they are a great choice for the sweet-toothed little ones in the family. Plus, you can store them in the cupboard for quite a long time, meaning you’ll always have a cup of raisins at the ready to perk up the morning cereals.
These tiny black-and-white seeds are taking the world of foods by storm. And it's no wonder as a single cup of chia seeds is high in fibre and protein. So, if you’re after a high-fibre breakfast, you can confidently add them to your next bowl of cereals.
Cereal toppings you can sprinkle
Cinnamon is a great way to spice up your breakfast, literally. We’ve made it the star in our Curiously Cinnamon cereals, but you can add a tea spoon of cinnamon to any morning cereals you may prefer and let the wonderful flavour take over.
Make sure you keep a cocoa powder supply handy. It’s always ready to lend its intense chocolate flavour to your hot drinks, but it will also offer an exciting new twist to your morning cereals. Add your favourite fruits and nuts to your bowl of cereal and then sprinkle some cocoa powder on top!
