Nature's Path Envirokidz Lightly Frosted Amazon Flakes

Welcome to day one of Vegan MoFo VII! This is my fourth Vegan MoFo, but in some ways I still feel like a newbie. If you've never been to my blog before, it's all about pre-packaged Vegan foods. Once in awhile I'll talk about trips I take (like my forthcoming Vida Vegan Con post) or spotlight prominent Vegans in The Laziest Vegans Top Ten. But anyway, that's what I'm all about... now let's talk about some Vegan cereal!

If you look at any one of my cereal blog posts, a common complaint of mine is the lack of fun Vegan cereals. Yeah, I know there is every kind of whole grain, super healthy, vitamin fortified cereal out there, but I just want some damn Vegan Lucky Charms. With that said, one of my favorite brands is Nature's Path. Everything is organic and a majority of their products are Vegan. And they even have a cereal line aimed at kids like me called Envirokidz. So you could say the Envirokidz Lightly Frosted Amazon Flakes jumped out at me when I saw them.

There's not a whole lot to them honestly! Very simple ingredients: corn meal, evaporated cane juice and sea salt. I thought they had great flavor and sweetness. And if for some strange reason they aren't sweet enough for you, I'd add some strawberries or blueberries. In closing, I think kids and adults would enjoy Amazon Flakes since they are sweet but not cloyingly so.

What kind of Vegan cereal would you like to see?

  1. I'd also like to see some damned vegan lucky charms! We have Mornflake cereal here which is pretty rad, kinda like vegan Kellogs Krave if you guys have that?

  2. I walked past a big display of on-sale peanut butter panda puffs today, and thought of you. I'll try these sometime, my fella loves frosted flakes, so I bet he would love these too! Happy mofo!

  3. Honey-free kashi go lean. I'm always annoyed about that lingering honey, and I've never seen a knockoff/store brand.

    1. Nice! Yeah, how hard would it be to not add honey? Bummer.

  4. Vegan Lucky Charms would be superamazing...I guess adding vegan marshmallows and maybe vegan Sprinkelz for color might work but it's just not the same.
    Any cereal from my old Saturday morning cartoon-and-cereal-marathons spin my spurs if they were veganized. Lucky Charms, Quisp, King Vitamin, Honeycomb, Alpha-Bits, Trix, Crunch Berries, Fruity Pebbles, Froot Loops, Apple Jacks, Kaboom, Super Sugar Crisp were the Top Twelve. Can someone please make them with true vegan ingredients, including true vegan sugar? Ummm, can they make them healthy too? I guess that's asking a lot. ;)
    Did you make forts with the boxes as a kid? My brother and I did. Cartoons, forts and cereal still thrill me silly. :)

  5. Peanut Butter Panda Puffs are the best vegan cereal of all time. Until we get vegan Lucky Charms.

  6. I would love to see vegan frosted mini-wheats. Why must they have gelatin! As it is, I'll stick with my panda puffs.
