(To make in a microwave, use a deep container to prevent spillage as the mixture will rise up as it cooks, and cook for 3 mins on High.) Stir in yogurt – or swirl in half and top with the rest. Top with the apricot mix.

    This is a lovely breakfast- unusual, refreshing tastes - especially the ginger which I was hesitant about adding as I'm not a huge fan. I thought of cheating with ginger powder but so glad I bothered to grate fresh! I used pink grapefruit, which also made it look very attractive and added the sunflower feeds shown in the picture-delicious!

    This sounds delicious - shame it has 30g of sugar per bowl.
