It’s that time of year when the succulent summer fruits are coming to an end and we are, dare I say it…. starting to say hello (or more likely, bugger off) to those lurking Autumn months. I can’t be the only one who has noticed the cold mornings and nights drawing in, surely? However, with an ongoing supply from my parents’ fruit bushes and some help from the supermarket I’ve managed to cling on to the last bit of summer and have put together a little healthy breakfast that will still put a smile on your face as you crawl out of bed to face to day.
:YOU WILL NEED:
Handful of Chopped Strawberries
Handful of Blueberries
Handful of Raspberries
1 x Kiwi
1 x Plum
Handful of low sugar Granola
Nuts of Choice
0% Fat Free Greek Yoghurt
The only bit of work you need to do for this recipe is to make the Raspberry coulis, which is a doddle just chuck your Raspberries into a blender with some water and Honey to add a bit of sweetness. Taste as you go, as you don’t want it too sweet (this will take the healthiness away from the dish).
Now all you need to do is build your breakfast, there is no fixed rule on how you should do this, just have fun with it, if you want lots of fruit then add more fruit if you love yoghurt then add more yoghurt, its pretty self explanatory but tastes amazing and is healthy either way. If you need a bit of guidance then start with a layer of yogurt followed by a layer of fruit and add swirls of your Coulis as you go.
You can add nuts as you go or just sprinkle them on the top, this will depend on how much you like nuts (cough, cough) or you can leave them out, again this recipe is based entirely on preference so make it your own. I added a bit of Granola to mine, not too much as the Sugar content is ridiculous in most granolas however I do have a sweet tooth and a scattering never hurt anyone, right?
Hey presto, you’re done, a super easy, healthy breakfast.
P.S This is great made the night before, use a clip jar like this one from Kilner and pop in you bag for work/School the next day.
