MAKES 2 SERVINGS / PREPARE 15 MINS / COOK 0 MINS
8 Strawberries or grapes halved if too big
1 or 2 Bananas, peaches or other seasonal fruit
1 tsp Lemon juice
50 g Blueberries/raspberries/blackberries
500 g Full-fat Greek yogurt
25 g Desiccated coconut
25 g Toasted oats
25 g Toasted quinoa flakes
25 g Toasted buckwheat
20 g Raisins
1 Small beetroot
Wash the raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and put them in separate bowls. Cut the strawberries into small pieces if too large. Put the dry ingredients in separate bowls too.
Peel and chop the bananas and mix them with the lemon juice so they don’t go brown. Peel and chop any other fruit you are using into bite-size pieces and put in another bowl and add a little lemon juice to stop them from going brown too.
Put the beetroot in your Beaba Babycook ® and process until reduced to paste.
In another bowl, mix half of the yogurt with the beetroot paste without beating too much as otherwise it might become too runny.
Start by spooning a layer of yogurt into a pretty see-through cup, follow the yogurt with your choice of dry ingredients, then add a few pieces of fruit. If you still have room, you can add more layers to your cup!
You can also spoon this pudding into a the Beaba Multiportion ® silicone mould and freeze for an hour, so it is firm but not completely frozen.
When you are ready to eat, sink the mould into a bowl of warm water for a few seconds, then turn onto a serving platter.
Strawberries are low in calories and high in FIBRE. They are also a great source of immune boosting VITAMIN C and ANTIOXIDANTS (polyphenols, flavones and the anti-inflammatory quercetin) that may prevent cellular damage linked to cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Raspberries are low in calories and high in FIBRE. They are also a great source of immune boosting VITAMIN C and ANTIOXIDANTS (polyphenols, flavones and the anti-inflammatory quercetin) that may prevent cellular damage linked to cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Bananas contain VITAMIN C that supports the immune system and POTASSIUM to help maintain healthy blood pressure.
Greek yogurt is high in PROTEIN although it also contains high levels of SATURATED FAT which can contribute to heart disease so, enjoy in moderation.
Dairy is also a good source of CALCIUM or healthy teeth and bones. Oats contain good levels of BETAGLUCAN, a type of fibre that research has proved lowers cholesterol levels.
Oats are also high in minerals such as MAGNESIUM, needed for energy production and muscle relaxation, PHOSPHOROUS, to help build bones and teeth, and IRON to transport oxygen within the body as well as B VITAMINS that help us convert foods into energy
