… or as I like to call it… breakfast!

The kids love this one.

Soak 1 cup of organic quick-cooking steel cut oats in 1 cup chocolate almond beverage (use plain or vanilla almond milk, nut milk or coconut milk of choice)

Stir in 1 tsp vanilla powder

Let soak at least 30min

Layer blueberries (or fruit of choice) on the bottom of your dish

Spoon a layer of oat mixture

Add another layer of fruit

Another layer of oat mixture

Top with slivered almonds or more fruit (I drizzled raspberry syrup on top)

Eat immediately or chill and serve later.

Enjoy!

 

Creative combos:

Peaches, cinnamon, and vanilla milk, topped with pecans.

Cherries, chocolate milk and vanilla

Mangoes, nutmeg, and vanilla milk, drizzled with honey (mango lassi oatmeal!)

2 tbsp sea buckthorn purée

1 cup orange juice (I used an organic orange/mango juice)

1/4 tsp vanilla powder

Blend the ingredients briefly and immediately pour into popsicle molds.

Pour into ice cube trays for a flavourful addition to water.

Freeze until set and enjoy!

 

As well as being high in vitamin C, sea buckthorn contains vitamins E, A, B1, B2, B5, D, P, K, and a number of minerals, carotenoids, and phytosterols (known for their cholesterol-lowering properties).

A super boost to a summer staple.
