Ingredients

Serves 1

60g porridge oats

15g brazil nuts, roughly chopped

30g dates, chopped

30g blueberries, washed

1 banana, peeled and chopped

150ml milk

Method

  • Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix.
  • Add milk.

Dawn: And eat! It’s this simple!

You can use whatever ingredients you may have in the kitchen cupboards and fridge. Apples, grated. Sliced pears. Cranberries – fresh or dried. Dried fruit of any kind including raisins, sultanas, currants, mixed fruit, apricots. All count towards the UK Government’s recommended “5-A-Day” and make for a healthy breakfast or alternative lunchtime meal. 

And remember: only include nuts of any variety if you’re not allergic to them!
