Cereal is one of the timeless breakfast staples, but it isn’t always easy to make it both healthy and delicious. The liquid base that you use can make or break your cereal and we’re here to help you make the best possible choice.
Water is obviously the healthiest possible liquid base to add to your cereal because it contains no calories, but most people avoid it at all costs because it will make your cereal gummy and bland.
Dairy milk is the most popular liquid base on the market—and for a good reason! It complements the flavor of pretty much every cereal, offering the perfect balance of sweetness and creaminess. The only catch? It can have a high fat and calorie content, but there are ways to combat this issue.
Water + Milk
Mixing water and milk is a great way to make sure your cereal is sweet and creamy, while still keeping it on the healthy side.
If you want to put a vegan twist on your cereal without sacrificing its taste, plant-based milks are a way to go. You can many options to choose from these days, including almond milk, soy milk, and oat milk, and they’ll all make your cereal taste equally delicious.
