This article originally appeared in Shape.

It's no secret that cereal doesn't grow on trees and that the breakfast staple is often categorized as processed food. But a new TikTok trend dubbed "nature's cereal" offers an alternative made of whole foods.

Nature's cereal, which appears to have originated from a post from TikTok user @natures_food, is predominantly fruit. It involves adding a handful of pomegranate seeds to a bowl, followed by handfuls of blackberries and blueberries. Rather than milk, the fruit "cereal" gets topped with coconut water taken straight from a coconut. In @natures_food's post, they say that nature's cereal helps them avoid constipation and provides a boost of energy. Some TikTok users have made swaps like opting for bottled coconut water or adding ice cubes or strawberries when recreating the dish. (Related: 10 Healthy Cereal Brands with Whole Grains & Low Sugar)
