Add a taste of the holiday season to your breakfast with warm spicy fruit and a squeeze of that orange you find in your Christmas stocking!
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.
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!
