Pumpkin Raisin Cereal Bowl

In honor of Canadian Thanksgiving today, I have a new pumpkin recipe!

I love coming up with new ways to use pumpkin!

This morning, The Captain wanted a bowl of corn flakes for breakfast... not content with that, I loaded up my bowl with lots of other goodies and came up with this.  It is almost like pudding... very creamy and rich tasting.

I think almost any plain cereal would work and I plan to experiment with others soon - nuts?  chocolate chips? peanut butter?

Pumpkin Raisin Cereal Bowl
Makes 1 serving
  • 1 cup cornflakes
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup vanilla unsweetened Almond Breeze
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 packets Splenda
  • 1 Tbs raisins
  1. Mix all ingredients in the bowl.
  2. Let rest for a few minutes while the cereal absorbs the milk and thickens up.
  3. Stir again and dig in.
Per serving.

When you first mix all the ingrients together, it is quite wet... just wait a few minutes!

It soon becomes as thick as pudding. Mmmmm.
