About a 12 months in the past, my daughter noticed a recipe for whipped espresso on TikTok and it actually made the primary a part of quarantine bearable for her.
Then, we tried the pickles coated with Hot Cheetos and I couldn’t hold sufficient pickles and Cheetos in the home. It was the go-to snack for my youngsters final summer time.
And we most not too long ago tried TikTok-famous Baked Feta Pasta ,which was completely wonderful.
So, for sure I’ve traded all my cookbooks and Pinterest recipes for TikTok developments as a result of that’s what my youngsters wish to eat. Hey, if it will get us collectively within the kitchen and across the desk collectively for an hour, I’m in.

We’ve by no means tried coconut water, however we do love our coconut milk. Also, we undergo berries on this home so quick they don’t even make it to the fridge so I knew the components would get eaten even when the cereal tasted like disappointment.
When I obtained to the grocery retailer my coronary heart sank as a result of there weren’t any pomegranate seeds — the star of the present. I’m undecided if it’s as a result of we stay within the northeast and it’s March, or they have been simply out.
Anyway, we needed to make do, so I did my finest and obtained raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries. My daughter demanded I get the great coconut water (no matter meaning) so I grabbed that and headed house to see if this TikTok development could be nearly as good because the tacky, heat pasta turned out to be.
Yes, that is simply fruit, coconut water, and ice cubes however rattling, it was good and that is why I liked it:
For one, my youngsters liked it. This makes me actually completely happy as a result of everyone knows how laborious it may be to get our youngsters (at any age) to eat wholesome.
It was actually refreshing and can make an important summer time deal with. The greatest factor that shocked me was how filling it was. I believed I’d really feel disadvantaged and unhappy however, this recipe was actually nourishing to not point out a sight for the eyes.
Nature’s Cereal could be a nice breakfast that may be eaten alone or paired with eggs. It additionally makes for a wholesome dessert.
Now, should you suppose that is going to deal with your cravings on your sugar cereal, or favourite granola, it gained’t. We nonetheless love our crunchy cereal on this home.

At first, I didn’t wish to add the ice cubes considering they might throw me off and make the cereal style too plain and watered down however I used to be unsuitable. You need the ice in there to maintain the coconut water good and chilly, which maximized the style.
I’m excited to do that with the pomegranate seeds as quickly as I can get some ( I’ve heard Trader Joe’s at all times has them, however the closest one to me is 45 minutes away). However, this snack – even with out them — was a winner in our house.

I’ll positively be preserving the components for this cereal available since summer time is approaching and it was one thing my youngsters have been enthusiastic about.
I gained’t lie: I attempted some the subsequent day with granola on high and it was even higher. Who says you may’t combine Nature’s Cereal with common cereal, proper?
