When I created this Bionicos recipe, it was Pedro’s birthday eleventh birthday! That was almost two years ago! At that time, I had no idea that this would become my most popular post, ever! So, I decided to give it a little love and updating. Not a day goes by that this post isn’t seen by the masses! This one is worth sharing. You are going to love every finger-licking bite of this traditional Bionicos recipe!
One of the things that is so special about Pedro is his love for his bi-cultural upbringing, and his hunger. He is so full of energy and is a promising competitive soccer player. I have to make sure he gets all the nutrients he needs each day, as well as enough calories. One of his favorite foods comes from the place his father grew up, Guadalajara. Pedro loves Bionicos! These are possibly the best breakfast-for-desert dishes you’ll ever taste.
My entire family, including my guadalajara-born husband’s side were skeptical about whether I’d pull off the authentic taste, using my own bionicos recipe. I nailed it! Now, I’m going to share my recipe with you.
The “crema” shown below, is the most important part! For this I added 1 cup of sour cream, 1 cup of plain yogurt, 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, 1 can of evaporated milk, 2 teaspoons of vanilla, and 1/4 cup of sugar. I mixed the ingredients together first, then put it in the blender for about one minute.
The crema is served over fresh cut fruit and topped with favorite things, especially and most commonly, granola and nuts. to add a depth of texture to this bionicos recipe! Quaker® Simply Granola has the best of both. This is absolutely my favorite granola cereal!
I also prepared some shredded coconut and hand-grated semi-sweet chocolate.
I like to cut the already refrigerated fruit when we’re ready to eat this delicious treat. I used bananas, apples, cantaloupe, strawberries, and mango. Many people also add papaya and grapes.
Add some of your fruit mixture to a cup or bowl, then pour a desired amount of crema over the fruit. Top with Quaker® Simply Granola, coconut, and chocolate shavings. The picture below is of Pedro’s bionico. He obviously wanted extra crema.
I’ve shared my favorite way to eat cereal, in a not-just-for-breakfast style. What’s yours? We’d love to hear your favorite cereal recipes. Maybe you even have your own version of a favorite bionicos recipe?
