Introduction: Breakfast to Go

Picture of Breakfast to Go

Not everyone can enjoy a healthy breakfast seated at the kitchen table. This is a quick trick for those who need to eat on the run.

Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need

You will need:

A bowl of cereal,
A cup of milk,
One banana,
One Straw,
A funnel,
A knife,
and A cutting board

Step 2: Chop the Top

For this step, simply cut the top off the banana using the knife and cutting board.

Step 3: Drill the Core

Using the straw, hollow out the banana. Be sure to leave enough of the banana walls to hold milk and cereal. If you puncture the sides, you must start over.

Step 4: Banana Pump

If you hollow out the banana correctly, the unneeded parts of the fruit will feed nicely through the top of the straw.

Step 5: Fill'er Up

Insert the funnel into the hollowed part of the banana. Add the cereal.

Step 6: Add the Calcium

Now pour in the milk. Not for the lactose intolerant.

Step 7: Eat and Run

Peel and eat. Now you have plenty of time to monkey around at work.

Awesome idea! I've put bananas in my cereal since childhood but never thought to put the cereal in the banana! And this is so much healthier because you get more banana and less cereal. I might go with oatmeal or granola.

Breakfast to go indeed! wow.

Scoopdude (author)scoochmaroo2011-08-18

For advanced primates on the go.

Biggsy (author)2011-03-18

If any I'ble was EVER worthy of one of my High Fives... then this is certainly it....

Welldone, I love the idea

High Five for you!

Scoopdude (author)Biggsy2011-08-18

Thank you so much. Five back to you.

sdtacoma (author)2011-03-18

What a great and fun idea. I think I am going to replace the milk with yogurt and stuff it in the banana some how.

Think of the other things you could put in there... PB, chocolate, strawberries or blueberries. OMG yum!

Scoopdude (author)sdtacoma2011-08-18

Great ideas. The fun possibilities are endless.

adellartemis (author)2011-03-19

LOVE this idea!

You could put anything in the banana as long as it pours. My husband and I wondered if you could put juice in then freeze it! Something kids would like

Another idea we had was mixing melted carob, peanut butter and rice crisps then piping it in! YUM. Thanks for this awesome idea!

Scoopdude (author)adellartemis2011-08-18

Nice variations. Good work.

XOIIO (author)2011-08-11

Thats actually friggin brilliant!

Scoopdude (author)XOIIO2011-08-18

We try. Thanks.

fabiogn (author)2011-08-12

Wonderful Idea!!! I have already eaten 3 bananas!

Scoopdude (author)fabiogn2011-08-18

We're always happy to promote a potassium-rich diet. Glad you like the idea.

ilpug (author)2011-08-11

holy crap this is ingenious. must try with raisins and granola.

Scoopdude (author)ilpug2011-08-18

Thanks for the feedback. Let us know how the other fillings work out. It might be easier without the milk...

This is great! You should come up with a "Lunch on the go" and "dinner on the go" variant... Maybe like a sandwich inside a tomato for lunch, or a steak inside a baked potato for dinner...

theawesomeninja (author)Tomcat942011-08-11

Lettuce wrap sandwich! sir, you are a genius!

I guess this was the motivation for KFC's "Double Down" (FOr those who don't know what that is, it is basically bacon, cheese, and sauce sandwiched by two pieces of Kentucky fried chicken.)

theawesomeninja (author)2011-08-11

Absolutely hilarious. Too bad that I don't like bananas or cereal with milk (I'm fine with cereal plain)

rix_101 (author)2011-05-12

This mad me laugh :D It's an awesome idea

russian5 (author)2011-04-05

Genius! This is perfect for those of us who have to roll out of bed at 4 in the morning >_<

crazycorncake (author)2011-03-26

It IS a great idea but I don't like bananas or cereal,so it's not for me.

rudegirl (author)2011-03-23

it would be easier and faster to drink a glass of milk and eat the banana on the go!

Punknudder (author)2011-03-19

Wonderful. And SOOOO much faster than the 5 minutes it takes to pour and eat a normal bowl of cereal. Well way FUNNER anyway.

lol XD (author)Punknudder2011-03-19

The point is to be able to eat it on the go, I don't think you can eat a bowl of cereal in your car or walking to work, but if you think its faster go ahead, lol

Punknudder (author)lol XD2011-03-19

Honestly, I think the point was just to be fun and silly. And it is. Very. I showed it to my daughter and she had to do it RIGHT NOW. She did, made a mess, it was awsome. But if we're going to go down this road..... It's not a quick trick, makes a mess, you get about two tablespoons of cereal, and good luck getting the Cap'n Cruch into the banana! (I know, crisped rice...) And in the time it takes to do it, you could have just eaten the bowl of cereal.
If you really NEED to have something "On-the-Run", don't put the banana in your cereal and eat it in the car. And watching my daughter eat her instructables snack, I wouldn't want to eat this in the car, at least not w/ out a bib. Should I try to eat this and drive I better borrow the wifes automatic. Imagine trying to work a stick shift, drink a cup of coffee, text my boss that I'm running late because I had to stuff a banana, AND try not to spill said stuffed banana all over my lap.
But I'm arguing. I don't know why. Compulsion I suppose. I really like this one. It was fun.

terryderry (author)Punknudder2011-03-21

Good point, fun but so messy...

Kayla Ree (author)2011-03-19

wont the milk make a mess when you bite into it??

Amber-Jean (author)2011-03-19

This blow my mind completely. Such a great idea.

thingy (author)2011-03-19

The way the banana fits in your hand makes me believe it was created by some higher authority.... and the cereal of course.

bulletproofkevlar (author)2011-03-19

great idea seems more fun then "on the go" though ...on the go implies zero to no prep-time this seems less on the go then it is making a poptart. but i will have to try it sometime..

Asmodeous (author)2011-03-18

Great idea, but I recently eased up on bananas because of the high sugar content.

Houdinipeter (author)2011-03-18

can you fit that much cereal? i wonder if you could get a really thick organic banana..

angelabchua (author)2011-03-18

I am deathly allergic to banana's myself, but i love this and am going to send this to my girlfriend who is ALWAYS running late in the morning bc of her breakfast routine.

l8nite (author)2011-03-17

AWESOME idea !
