Spicy yogurt, apple & berry swirl

My family loves breakfast. It is our favourite meal of the day. I love creating delicious, healthy dishes that serve as inspiration and are easily adapted for different needs. This breakfast can be made with dairy yogurt (preferably raw) or with oat yogurt for a vegan version. Adults can drizzle honey or maple syrup over it and little babies can enjoy a mashed or pureed version.

It is refreshing served refrigerated on summer mornings. In winter we add freshly steamed apple to warm it up a little. It makes a great snack and even a healthy dessert. You won’t need Sam-I-Am to convince your children to eat it, which is always a plus on busy mornings.

Recipe tips
The skins of organic and home-grown fruits are full of antioxidants so we usually prefer to leave them on, but it is best to peel apples before using them in this dish because they taste better and smaller babies will have a hard time chewing cooked apple skins. Add thick greek yogurt and a good honey, and you have a healthy dinner party dessert. We usually make a big batch of apples in advance, sprinkle them with cinnamon and keep them in a sealed glass jar in the fridge.

You can use frozen berries if fresh berries are out of season. Our favourite apples are Cox and Royal Gala, but any sweet apple will do.

The latest guidelines suggest that unless there are food-related allergies in the family, there is no reason to wait until 1 year to serve nuts, but if you are in any doubt, consult your child’s doctor before giving nuts to a child.
