- 200g rolled oats
- 200ml milk
- 80ml apple juice
- 50g raisins
- 50g lightly toasted almonds, roughly chopped
- 1 dessert apple, chopped
- 1 kiwi fruit, peeled and chopped
- Natural yogurt
- Seeds of your choice such as pumpkin, sunflower and poppy
- Agave nectar syrup or honey
Agave syrup can be bought in the health food section in supermarkets. It has a mild taste and as it has a low glycaemic index it doesnít cause a quick rise in blood sugar levels.
- The night before, put the oats into a bowl with a cover. Add the milk, apple juice, raisins and almonds. Stir well, cover and leave in the fridge overnight.
- The next morning stir in the apple and kiwi fruit. Spoon into bowls and top, as you please, with yogurt, seeds and Agave syrup.
