A sensational tasty breakfast that tastes just like cheesecake!
Great for those in a hurry in the morning as you prepare it the night before.
This recipe is for one jar, so you can make more separately or mix in a large bowl and carefully spoon into jars.
I got the original recipe from Anna Van Dyken at Feed Me Healthy. Sensational.
I have however changed a few ingredients and used milk instead of yoghurt.
Make the night before
- 1/2 cup dry rolled oats
- 1 tbl maple syrup (pure or sugar free)
- 1/2 cup skim or almond milk (enough to cover oats)
- 2 drops organic vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries (microwave on high 30 secs, keep juice)
Can make the night before or in the morning
- 3 tbl cream cheese
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1/4 tsp organic vanilla extract (essence)
In a jar, place oats, maple syrup, milk and vanilla extract.
Microwave in a small bowl blueberries for 30 seconds on high.
Pour the blueberries and its juice into the oat mix and stir through.
Your mixture may become blue purple!
Place a lid on the jar or cover and refrigerate over night.
In the morning, make your cream cheese topping if you haven’t done so already.
Simply squeeze half a lemon into a bowl, mix the cream cheese and vanilla extract together with the juice with a spoon until smooth.
Once mixed spoon on top of oats.
Garnish with fruit or lemon rind.
*Did you know that you would have to eat five servings of peas, carrots, apples, squash or broccoli to get the antioxidants contained in one half cup of blueberries.
Anthocyanins, the pigments that make blueberries blue, are the antioxidant compounds responsible for their health benefits.
They are a good source of fiber. What’s more, blueberries are a healthy low-glycemic-load carbohydrate, a good source of both vitamin C and ellagic acid, a natural compound that inhibits tumor growth. Like cranberries, blueberries contain a substance that can help prevent urinary tract infections by interfering with the attachment of bacteria to the bladder wall. Fresh, frozen and dried blueberries are all equally beneficial.
I eat them everyday!
