Cream of Wheat ~Banana Flavored

Starting in the fall, there are breakfast foods that make a presence on my table when it is chilly outsideIt begins - while stepping onto the cold floor I remember hot cereal exists.  This week may bring warm temperatures, but the overripe banana sitting in my fruit bowl reminded me of Banana Cream of Wheat!  It is Autumn!
Yes!  There were enough cereal granules in the Cream of Wheat box to prepare 2 servings.  The directions on the box are followed. 

However, there definitely are changes as to the ingredients.  1 overripe Banana cut into thin slices is added to the 1 quart sauce pot containing the Cream of Wheat granulesSoy Milk rather than Whole Milk or Water is used.  1/8 teaspoon each of Cinnamon + Nutmeg is added in, also.  Turn on the Medium heat and you're on your way to start stirring!

Cream of Wheat ~Banana Flavored is great!  Calcium, Potassium + Cinnamon & Nutmeg.

There are so many great ways to use bananas. Putting them in hot cereal would be good. I always love any kind of fruit on my oatmeal! Happy Fall!

On your recommendation, I will give this a try. I'm not much of a Cream of Wheat person, so I have my doubts, but I trust you. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Lavender Dreamer- For me, Bananas need to be the "right" degree of ripe, so this is a great way to hide the overripe one. :)

Mary- After enjoying this flavor, the plain ole' cereal just does not make it. Tastes so good! :)
