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.

More pancakes and the last of my strawberries on this glorious Day 20 of the Nestle breakfast challenge. I found the idea of cutting my pancakes into heart shapes really cheesy and was more comfortable with the conventional round shape. The only other change I made was to replace the eggs with banana puree and my pancakes puffed up impressively so I had no qualms going egg-free here. Do not skip the strawberry sauce, I repeat, do not skip the strawberry sauce, else the precious effort of getting up early to make these special pancakes will be, to a large extent, wasted.

Day 20: WHOLE WHEAT PANCAKES WITH STRAWBERRY SAUCE

Ingredients:

For the Pancakes

3 tablespoons milk powder

3/4 cup all purpose flour

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon kitchen salt

1/2 banana, mashed

1 1/2 cups cold water

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

For the Strawberry Sauce

1 cup fresh strawberries

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla paste

Method:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In another bowl, combine mashed banana, water and vanilla.

  • Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients, mixing only enough to combine them. The batter will be somewhat lumpy.

  • Use a 1/4 cup to ladle batter onto a hot skillet or frying pan and cook until bubble break onto surface of pancake.

  • When the bottom turn golden brown, flip pancake with a spatula and cook on the other side for about 1 minute.

  • Repeat with remaining batter and stack pancakes on a hot plate. In the mean time, prepare the strawberry sauce.

  • Cook strawberries with sugar until soft and jam-like in consistency, cook slightly and stir in vanilla paste.

  • Serve the pancakes warm with strawberry sauce and a scoop of vanilla or berry ice cream. Makes 4 servings.

I guess the real challenge of these Nestle breakfast recipes was to find a substitute for bananas whenever I had to use them in smoothies or cereal bowls. Strawberries were usually the ones who came to my rescue mainly because they were undeniably more colourful, if not, more photogenic. Day18 was yet another repetition of the hated yogurt- banana combination and I think my Koko Krunch bowl looked [and tasted] way better with a good measure of whipped cream and freshly grated orange zest.

Day 18: NUTTY KOKO KRUNCH FRUIT BOWL

Ingredients:

30g Nestle Koko Krunch

1/4 cup fresh whipped cream

1/4 cup almond flakes

1 teaspoon orange zest

Method:

  • Place the Koko Krunch and freshly whipped cream in a large breakfast bowl.

  • Top with almonds flakes and orange zest and serve immediately. For 1 person.

Probably my favorite challenge recipe so far, this Nestum Milo smoothie combines the two Nestle products I love most in a single nutritious breakfast beverage that takes less than 5 minutes to blend together. Nothing like the chocolate milkshake I was expecting, this smoothie has a lovely balance between the unique flavors of Nestum and Milo and provides the perfect energy boost for those who claim not to have time to sit down for breakfast.

Day 17: NESTUM & MILO BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons Nestum cereal

2 tablespoons Milo powder

1 teaspoon muscovado sugar

1 1/2 cups full cream milk, chilled

Extra Milo powder, for topping

Method:

  • Place all ingredients in a blender and mix everything together until smooth.

  • Pour into tall serving glass and top with extra Milo powder. Makes 1 serving.
