Warm Up With Mini-Wheats #TryitHot - Outside The Box

Warm Up With Mini-Wheats #TryitHot

Warm Up With Mini-Wheats #TryitHot

What do weekend mornings look like in your house? Ours can be pretty busy. There’s dance and swimming lessons. There is the house and yard that always needs looking after. Some weekends see us catching up on work we didn’t manage to quite get done during the week. And of course there’s always family commitments. I like the idea of a leisurely Sunday morning, complete with a full on brunch but the reality is that rarely happens. And that’s fine. We like being busy and active. But we still like to have a good breakfast to get our day started. I don’t mind whipping up some eggs or oatmeal or even pancakes, and I often do, but often grabbing a bowl of our favorite cereal is our breakfast of choice. Not only is cereal quick and easy but when you add some milk and grab a piece of fruit (or even add the fruit to your bowl) you have yourself a pretty complete breakfast.

It’s also pretty easy to spice up your favorite cereal to keep things new and tasty. Add berries and nuts. Change up the regular milk to almond milk. Or, here’s something – top your cereal with warm milk. Yes that’s right, warm milk. Now I’m sure not every cereal lends itself well to being topped with warm milk but there are several that do. And a perfect example of a cereal that goes perfectly with warm milk is Kellogg’s Mini-Wheats.

When a few boxes of Shredded Wheat arrived on our door step with the challenge to #TryitHot my daughter was more than willing to be the first to try it. I presented her with her options – Original Frosted, Maple Flavour, Stawberry Flavour or Brown Sugar Flavour Mini-Wheats and I knew before she even said that she would jump all over the Brown Sugar Flavour. Oatmeal with brown sugar and milk is one of her all time favorites so this was a natural choice.

And the verdict? Just in case you can’t tell from these shot – she LOVED it! I love that we just added a new favorite to our morning meals because even though she’s pretty adventurous we all know that 4 year olds can be picky when they set their minds too it. Oh and that bowl she’s eating out of – I have to tell you about that because she thought it was the best thing ever AND because it’s part of the giveaway that you could win. It’s a microwave safe bowl that comes with a lid with a hidden, folding spoon. Pretty handy, especially since my husband and I pack a lunch for work every day. It also has a handle which Molly loved because she could just pick up the bowl when the cereal was all done and enjoy every drop of that warm, sweet milk.


Now as much as I also like brown sugar I had a nice fresh carton of strawberries in the fridge and new exactly what I wanted to try.

Not only does this look amazing (and very pretty) it tastes awesome. Crispy Mini-Wheats, warm milk and cool strawberries – it’s a flavour and texture explosion. I’m pretty happy that we took on the #TryitHot challenge. There are so many possibilities and it’s just such an easy way to change things up. And I’m looking forward to having some warm milk on my Mini-Wheats on those cool mornings at the camp ground too! I’m not a coffee drinker so this will be a perfect way to take the chill off while enjoying the peace and quiet of those early mornings with nature.
