Making Breakfast Great with Kashi! #OatsMadeGreat

by | Feb 12, 2015 | Food & Drink, Sponsored

Y’all. I’m not even going to insult you by telling you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

But it is.

Making breakfast great is greatly important.


You know what else is an important way to start the day?


Might as well kill 2 birds with one stone: get your creative juices flowing by creating a great breakfast!

I am building this breakfast around Kashi’s Go Lean Crisp (Toasted Berry Crumble).

It’s so crisp!

And this little breakfast deliciousness is dairy-free!

Milk and yogurt seem to be taking a back seat these days… with people turning to non-dairy options such as almond milk and coconut milk.

MY creative breakfast idea follows that new dietary trend.


I’m sure you’ve heard of coconut milk, but have you met coconut CREAM?

OOOOOOH LOLLY! Instead of turning to the old stand-by, YOGURT… I suggest popping open a can of coconut cream, y’all!

Spoon your coconut cream into a bowl.

Tear open a box of you Kashi oats of choice and… pour your Kashi on top!

Add bananas. Sliced.

Don’t just peel the banana and lay it on top whole. That complicates consumption.

Add a handful of blueberries.

Then… add a small handful of sliced almonds.


Or you can add pecans. Or walnuts. I just love the texture of sliced almonds.

Then… because the coconut cream is so dense, I add a bit of coconut milk. For sauciness.

Just do it. It may feel redundant, but this is about texture.

And since we are already following a coconut theme, how about you sprinkle some toasted coconut flakes on top?



The coconut cream is so thick. Paired with the Kashi crispy goodness, almonds, banana, blueberries, oh… and that sprinkling of toasted coconut – it’s just a great way to get your belly full so you can make hard decisions and make it through to lunch.

You work hard. You deserve to start your day off right. YOU DESERVE IT.

Do you see that little pillow of coconut cream?

*I die*

But what do YOU think?

#OatsMadeGreat, indeed.
