DRIED FRUIT COMPOTE
This is a nice “comforting” breakfast that’s not too heavy but not as light as fresh fruit or a smoothie – i.e. perfect for autumn, winter and slightly chillier starts to the day.
Mixed dried fruit of your choice (pre-soaked in water is best, but if you want to make this in a hurry then pre-soaking is not absolutely necessary)
1 cup almonds (or 1 Tablespoon almond butter)
2 cups pure water
Place your dried fruits into a bowl. If they are pre-soaked so much the better.
Prepare your almond milk (it will take just 1 minute if using almond butter, and just 3 minutes if starting from scratch) by blending your almonds with water and straining using a fine mesh sieve or nut milk bag.
Pour on the almond milk for a deliciously filling and satisfying breakfast. Truly yummy!
Raw Coach Top Tips:
Always be careful when buying dried fruits. Ideally you want them with nothing extra added, especially not sulphur dioxide (E220).
Don’t limit yourself in what you could add to this dish. Try topping with cinnamon powder, coconut flakes or ground nuts and seeds. Or try the recipe with a different nut milk.
Or keep things really simple and just use one type of dried fruit – it doesn’t have to be mixed…
