Vegan Unicorn Yogurt Pot

Good morning everyone 🙂

Assuming it is morning if you’re looking up a yogurt recipe! Unless you’re that kind of person that doesn’t live by the rules and eats breakfast for dinner and vice versa (we’ve all been there) and in which case I admire your attitude.

This is a recipe I came up with spontaneously and served it à La Minute. Displayed on the legendary Dr Greger’s ‘How Not To Die’ book (give it a read if you haven’t 😉 ).

The recipe only requires a few simple ingredients and makes your breakfast or snack a lil more interesting!

This recipe is also perfect to pre-prepare so your fridge is stocked up with a few of these unicorn pots in the week and you can grab one whenever you fancy!

Ingredients

  • Alpro Plain Yogurt
  • Vegan granola (Here I used Country Crisp Nut Cereal)
  • Chlorella Powder
  • Tumeric Powder
  • Any red berry powder (I used Sense* for busy lives as I have received a sample 😉 )
  • Vanilla extract
  • Chia seeds
  • Nuts (optional)

Simple How To:

  1. Spread the yogurt into 3 mixing bowls. Use more than one yogurt pot if you are pre-prepping.
  2. Mix at least 1tsp per portion of Chlorella, Tumeric and Berry powder into separate bowls. If you want the colour to be more intense, 1 and a half or 2tsp will work.
  3. Add 2-3 drops of vanilla extract to each mixture.
  4. Start decorating! Use a small transparent glass and pour each mixture slowly so they do not leak into each other. Make sure to measure out equal portions for each colour.
  5. Layer one colour with some chia seeds.
  6. Sprinkle a good portion of granola on top et voila! You have made your own unicorn pot. Enjoy 🙂

Cocoa Orange Porridge

Did someone say chocolate orange porridge? This is my go-to breakfast. It’s like a dessert for breakfast: delicious, full of vitamins, and none of the bad stuff. It’s impossible to feel guilty eating it!

Ingredients:

  • 100 g porridge oats
  • 400 ml soy milk
  • 1/2 orange (1 for more flavour)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp maca powder (optional)

How to:

  1.  Pour the porridge oats and milk into a hob on medium to low heat, stirring frequently.
  2. Cut the orange in half and squeeze it into a bowl or cup (you can use a juicer but I prefer to squeeze it by hand. So does my bank account.)
  3. Measure out the appropriate amounts of cocoa powder and maca powder and add it to the mixture when it starts to boil gently. Pour in the orange juice.
  4. When it boils, turn down the heat, stir, and let it simmer until it reaches a consistency you are happy with.
  5. Top with fruit and seeds.

You can throw away the pulp left from the orange or eat it not to waste it (I don’t always do that I’ll admit.) I topped my porridge with some flax seeds, chia seeds, raspberries, blueberries, goji berries and a banana.
