Ingredients

  • 170g Greek yoghurt – we use Tim’s Dairy Greek style as they are the nicest people ever!
  • 3 dessert spoons of oats
  • 2 level dessert spoons of raisins, sultanas and currants
  • knob of butter
  • splash of creamy whole milk
  • good squeeze of mild clear honey
  • good big pinches of mixed spice and cinnamon
  • 2 large wedges of a juicy fresh orange

Instructions

Mix the oats into the yoghurt with a splash of creamy milk, a good squeeze of zesty orange and a large squeeze of honey.

When ready to serve (which you can do right away or leave overnight in the fridge) melt the butter in a small heavy frying pan then add the fruit, honey and spices, and heat through. You will immediately get a lovely Christmassy aroma all around the kitchen!

Fold the hot fruit into the oaty yoghurt mix, saving a little bit for the top.

Finish with a small drizzle of honey and even a swirl of cream and some toasted nuts.

Add a wedge of orange for optional squeezing. Beautiful.

Nutrition Info

Oats

Oats are particularly high in manganese which is great for healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. Oats are a wholegrain, that means the good stuff hasn’t been removed. Wholegrains are an important source of B vitamins and fibre.

Oats are a great source of the soluble fibre called beta-glucan. That’s what makes porridge kinda viscous and it stays quite viscous as it passes through you, sweeping up any excess cholesterol as it goes. A happy gut is at the heart of good health!

Oats do a special thing – as they pass through your intestine their bulk presses against its muscly walls. It presses back in response and by doing so its muscles get stronger. Oats are literally like a sparring partner for your digestive tract!

But enough about that – OMG CHRISTMAS!
