Gluten and dairy free breakfast ideas using Nutribrex!

Nutribrex has always been one of my top picks for a quick and easy gluten free breakfast, so when they gave me some of their new coconut and crispy rice and 5 ways granola to try, I was very excited to experiment with some delicious breakfast ideas. If you haven’t already heard of Nutribrex, they are the UKs very first breakfast brand to introduce a gluten free alternative to normal wheat based cereal. Everyone will have heard of Weetabix before, and Nutribrex are an amazing gluten and dairy free alternative to this! The brand started with their original Nutribrex flavour which are sold in a bright pink box, they then moved on to creating their coconut and crispy rice breakfast alternative, as well as 2 flavours of versatile granola – honey, almonds and seeds and hazelnut, coconut and quinoa. As you can see from the photos of the packaging below, the bright colours stand out on the supermarket shelf, as does the product inside.

Nutribrex cereals are all gluten free, dairy free, suitable for vegans, high in fibre and the perfect healthy and filling breakfast to start the day off. I’m a huge snacker, and normally can’t get from breakfast to lunch without some sort of snack, however, Nutribrex is one of the only breakfasts that actually keeps me full until lunch! Nutribrex can be brought in most major UK supermarkets including Waitrose, Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Wholefoods and Ocado.

The amazing part about the granola, is it’s versatility and the amount of ways it can be used, for example, as a granola, porridge, topping, bircher muesli, in a smoothie or incorporated into baking! Here are some of the ways in which I have been using my Nutribrex to create delicious breakfast ideas:

Coconut and crispy rice served with fresh fruit 

The simple breakfast below can be made in a matter of minutes by heating your coconut and crispy rice in the microwave with almond milk and topping with fresh fruit. I went for bananas, raspberries and of course, a dairy free almond milk latte to go with it.
