Nature’s Path Organic has released their latest ‘Superflakes’ cereal that we just couldn’t wait to tuck into – and you will too! This wholegrain, organic, gluten-free and dairy-free cereal is made with sprouted grains and chia seeds and comes in two tasty flavours, Honey & Chia and Cocoa & Coconut. Their excellent nutritious contents claim to be perfect for a breakfast that packs a punch with a crunch and sets you on the right path for the day.
So what makes these Superflakes so super? Well, sprouted grains are seeds that have been harvested just before they turn into a fully-fledged plant. Sprouting is a part of the natural growing process, which gives life to the seed – but if you stop it at the right moment, you can unlock far more vitamins, nutrients and flavour than found in ‘normal’ grains. In Superflakes, Nature’s Path uses sorghum flour, black bean flour and brown rice flower, which are all made from nutrient-rich sprouted grains.
Working alongside sprouted grains are chia seeds and cocoa, which also provide a beneficial breakfast boost. Chia seeds are high in ALA Omega-3 Fatty Acids, fibre and magnesium, while cocoa contains iron and antioxidants.
But of course, the all-important question, how do they taste? Here’s what we thought:
Honey & Chia Superflakes
The Honey & Chia Superflakes are deliciously sweet and crunchy and create the perfect blend with milk. We found them super filling, which is perfect for a nutritious breakfast or snack. And, there’s no need to add any sweeteners too!
Cocoa & Coconut Superflakes
Cocoa-rich with a hint of coconut, these flavours are perfectly balanced to bring out the rich, bittersweet taste of cocoa that is subtly sweetened with coconut flakes. By the time you get to the end, the milk will be deliciously flavoured with the cocoa from the cereal, making this an ideal breakfast for a healthy, yet indulgent chocolate craving to get you ready for the day.
Both these flavour tastes delicious with soya milk or alternative plant based milks too!
Superflakes are the go-to cereal to get you on the path to a more balanced diet and start your day off the right way. Both variants, Honey & Chia and Cocoa & Coconut, are available at Tesco stores nationwide, priced at £3.50 RRP.
