Cereal Sundae Ingredients – Quick Healthy Breakfast

  • 1 small banana – sliced into bitesized pieces
  • 2 tbs of Greek yogurt – you can use plain Greek yogurt or make this up with flavoured yogurt if you prefer.
  • 100g mixed berries – I like to use strawberries and blueberries, but it’s nice made with raspberries or even blackberries and cinnamon flavoured apple slices during the autumn.
  • 40g of low sugar muesli – I usually use a no-added sugar muesli from Dorset Cereals but feel free to use whichever cereal you prefer.

It’s super easy to make our cereal sundae, simple to prepare and simple to make means they’re even good for busy mornings.

It’s just a case of grabbing a glass or mason jar and layering up banana, Greek yogurt and muesli topped with another spoonful of yogurt a handful of berries and another spoonful of yogurt.

I use a wheat free muesli for this recipe just to keep it gluten free but you can pop in whatever cereal you like.

You could even add a little drizzle of maple syrup on the top if you like.

This is one of our best gluten free recipes for breakfast – a total hit every time we make it.

  • Make it vegan – you can make our cereal sundae into a vegan breakfast recipe by swapping to vegan, plant based yogurt in place of the Greek yogurt.
  • Use your favourite cereal – make the cereal sundae with whatever cereal you like – Shreddies and Cheerios are popular here with the kids.

  • Add dried fruit – If the kids like sultanas or dried fruit you could add a few of them in with the cereal too.
  • Make it without berries – skip the berries – no worries just use chopped apple or kiwi slices to make up your cereal sundae.
  • Make it to eat on the go – you could make these in little plastic food pots to grab and go. If you’re making them ahead of time then skip the banana as that will turn brown and mushy.
  • Eat as an after school snack – our cereal sundaes also make a great after school snack for when the kids come home starving – or to eat on route to after school sports clubs just to fill up until dinner time.
