How To Make Nature's Cereal, the Surprisingly Good TikTok Breakfast Trend
Cereal, but make it fruity.
TikTok is moving on from warm and hearty baked oats into its latest food trend, “nature’s cereal,” a fruity breakfast bowl filled with mixed berries, crunchy pomegranate and fresh, sweet coconut water.
The viral recipe, originally posted by TikTok account @natures_food, offers a healthy, fruity alternative to the traditional breakfast cereal. To prepare “nature’s cereal,” the TikToker combines blueberries, blackberries and pomegranate seeds in a bowl, then topping it with some coconut water. “The number one thing I notice when I eat this is my energy level — the energy level is through the roof,” the content creator says in the video.
Given the addictive nature of TikTok, it is not surprising that the #naturescereal hashtag has already accumulated nearly 250 million views on the social media platform. Anyone who has been following the popular food trend will also probably know that Lizzo is a fan of the recipe. After trying nature’s cereal for the first time and recommending it to her followers in a TikTok a week ago, the “Good As Hell” singer has since returned to the app to share a string of duet videos, in which she reacts to other TikTok users attempting the recipe.
