This recipe was first introduced to me by my good friend and colleague Elaine Bruce. It was many years ago now, and she served it to me one morning after I'd fasted for most of the previous day having been a bit out of sorts. When she gave me this I was positively ravenous, and I have to say, when she served this to me I thought I had died and gone to heaven!
I've chosen this particular recipe for this week because it's a nice "comforting" breakfast that's not too heavy but not as light as fresh fruit or a smoothie - i.e. perfect for autumn and slightly more chilly starts to the day.
Blender, Nut milk bag or Strainer
Assorted dried fruits such as figs, prunes, apricots and apple rings - but make sure they're all sulphur-free
As much almond milk as desired
- Pre-soak your dried fruits in pure water until plump and rehydrated. This could take anywhere from 4-8 hours depending on the size and how dried your fruits are.
- When your dried fruits are ready, make your almond milk (it will take just 1 minute if using almond butter, and just 3 minutes if starting from scratch).
- Simply spoon your soaked (and drained) dried fruits into a large bowl and then pour on the almond milk for a deliciously filling and satisfying breakfast. Truly yummy!
Raw Coach Top Tips:
- 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.
