Ingredients

  • 200g porridge oats
  • 50g chia seeds
  • 600ml unsweetened almond milk, plus 8 tbsp
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 125g punnet raspberries
  • 100g almond yogurt

    Yogurt

    yog-ert

    Yogurt is made by adding a number of types of harmless bacteria to milk, causing it to ferment.…

  • 250g punnet blueberries
  • 20g flaked almonds, toasted

Method

  1. Tip the oats and seeds into a bowl and pour over the milk and vanilla extract. Leave for 5-10 mins for the oats to absorb some of the liquid.

  2. Reserve 16 raspberries, then add the remainder to the oats and crush them into the mixture. Spoon into four tumblers or sundae dishes, then top with the yogurt and both lots of berries. Cover and chill overnight or until needed. To serve, pour 2 tbsp almond milk over each and scatter with the almonds.

How many days will this keep in the fridge to stay good to eat?

Thanks for your question. You can keep this in the fridge for up to two days.

What would be the nutritional difference if I made this with cows milk? Almond milk only comes in litres and I'm only catering for one so would never get to use a whole litre before it went off.

Thanks for your question. If you change the almond milk and almond yogurt for semi-skimmed cow's milk and whole yogurt, you can expect to have about a 15% increase in calories. This will be due to higher protein and higher carbs (from the milk sugar lactose) - fat will stay broadly the same (although this does depend on brands used).

Is it really 125g of strawberries? That was about 8 strawberries, but the recipe implies that it's more than 16. Don't worry though, I resolved the dilemma by adding more strawberries.

There is no yogurt in the ingredients list; how much is needed and what kind of yogurt?

Apologies for the omission. We've now added the yogurt to the ingredients list. You need 100g almond yogurt but you can use cow's yogurt if you prefer.
