Ingredients

  • 1½ cups rolled oats
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup flaked almonds
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large organic green apple, shredded with skin on
  • 1 kiwi fruit
  • Coconut yoghurt, coconut flakes, other fruits

Method


  • Place oats, seeds, almonds, coconut milk, coconut water and vanilla in an airtight container and mix until well combined. Place in the fridge sealed overnight.
  • Before serving, stir through shredded apple and spoon into 2 serving bowls. Top with kiwi fruit and hemp seeds.
  • Tip: Try squeezing lime juice over your shredded apple to prevent it from going brown. Leaving the skin on your apple will give this dish an extra boost in vitamin C, A and K.
