- Blackberries: Rinsed and drained well.

Tips for Success
Before you grab your ingredients, be sure to check out these extra tips for making nature’s cereal.
- Drain Berries Well: After you wash your berries, drain them thoroughly. This keeps excess water from making its way into your cereal.
- Serve Immediately: If you leave this dish out for too long before digging in, the berries will become very mushy. I don’t recommend trying to make nature’s cereal ahead of time.
- Use Coconut Ice: Worried about your fruit cereal getting too watery? Pour some coconut water into your ice tray the night before and use it in your bowl the next morning!
Fruit Cereal Variation Ideas
Nature’s cereal can be made in so many different ways. Here are some ideas for how to switch it up!
- Make Omissions: Not a fan of blackberries? Don’t have any pomegranate seeds? Whatever the reason, feel free to omit ingredients as you see fit.
- Add Lemon: For a citrusy twist on this breakfast bowl, add in some fresh lemon juice and/or zest. Lime juice works great too!
- Tropical Version: Another thing you can do is switch up the fruit entirely. For tropical fruit cereal, use mangoes, pineapples and kiwi instead of berries!
- Add Granola: Craving a bit of crunch to go along with this fruity breakfast bowl? Add a couple scoops of your favorite keto granola before serving.
