Layered Home made fruit yoghurt

Updated: Oct 13


Layered Home made fruit yoghurt with my home made muesli.

Happy rainy Monday beautiful ppl


This is my everyday breakfast, actually it’s brunch I don’t eat before 11am. I can’t tell you how much I love this

This super breakfast consists of delicious, healthy layers of goodness.

I use store-bought yoghurt which has zero sugar, I make my own chia-seed fruit jam (without sugar) and make my homemade toasted muesli, minus the honey. I don’t miss the sweetness in this breakfast but if you do need some more sweetness than you just get from the fruit, then I suggest you go for my home made toasted muesli with honey in it.


If you want your day to be positive you must have positive thoughts upon rising. (according to my BFF google, so it must be true, right?) Before you open your eyes you need to have gratitude in your heart for all the things that you have to be thankful for and visualise the things that make you feel good/happy.

I wanted to extend this to all you wonderful ppl this morning, because I am definitely grateful to have so many enthusiastic, kind and generous readers. So, I made a breakfast that would reflect a beautiful day filled with bright colours. 🌺🌸🌼🌻 I wanted a breakfast that would put a spring in your step and a smile your face.

Looking at the photos, I may have overdone it. (Which is not a surprise. I don’t have a middle name, but if I did, over-the-top would probably be it).

Have a beautiful Monday everyone

with love and gratitude

Nava.

Muesli recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 cups rolled oats

  • 1 teaspoons salt

  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup

  • 2-3 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • ½ cup of melted coconut oil

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170c

  2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl, stir in the melted coconut oil, vanilla and stir in the honey.

  3. Transfer mixture onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and spread the muesli evenly.

  4. Cook on 170c for 20 min and let it sit to cool down before adding anything your heart desires.

  5. I sometimes add toasted coconut flakes, cocoa nibbles, a combination of nuts and seeds and dried fruit.

Simply create as many layers in your bowl or jar as you like



Yoghurt

Any plain yoghurt of your choosing: Greek yoghurt/coconut yoghurt/ or any other kind you like. I recommend that you have an unflavoured one so you can enjoy the fruity flavour of the jam.
