This October, Nestlé is running a 21-Day Breakfast Challenge to promote their products as well as to encourage people to invest more time and effort in making breakfast part of their morning routine. Nestlé products should feature in the selfies posted on their Facebook album. Though I am not into this selfie madness, I was fueled by the excitement of a new challenge and decided to tackle it in my own way: To bake the 21 breakfast recipes in the Nestle recipe book and post one recipe per day on my blog.


Here’s Nestum with a dose of caffeine for those who find it difficult to get up and keep hitting the snooze button for that extra 5 minutes of sleep. For the dried fruit, I used a handful of raisins and lemon peel along with a few broken cashew nuts and coconut shavings. Add some chopped dried apricots or cranberries for more colour or swap the flax seeds for pumpkin or sunflower seeds.



25g Nestum breakfast cereal

1 tablespoon flax seeds

3 tablespoons milk powder

1 cup warm water

1/2 cup Nescafe classic

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons dried fruit


  • Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix again.

  • Place bowl in the refrigerator, covered, for at least 2 hours or overnight. Serve cold.
