Happy Nutrition Month everyone!!! In honour of the blessed month Dietitians of Canada has released a super cool app called Cookspiration http://cookspiration.com/home.aspx. They have an apple app and android is coming still. It’s fabulous – check it out! I found this recipe on it and I made it last night for breakfast this morning. And is it ever good. In my true fashion I didn’t make it like the recipe and tweeked it here and there to suit my taste 😉
2/3 cup quick-cooking rolled oats (use Gluten free oats if needed)
2 tbsp each ground flaxseed, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut
2 cups 1% milk (soy or almond beverage)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups lower-fat plain yogurt
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
Fresh fruit for the morning – sliced strawberries, bananas, canned peaches, pears, oranges, etc….
1. In a bowl, stir oats, seeds, coconut into milk; let stand for 15 minutes. Stir in sugar and cinnamon.
2. Add yogurt, lemon juice, fruit; stir all together. Refrigerate overnight.
3. At serving time, slice fruit and stir into mixture.
Perfect for quick mornings! 🙂
