Breakfast Parfait

At Matt's request, here's a shamefully easy but beautiful, healthy and refreshing breakfast parfait for you to experiment with.

 

For the Apple and Pear Compote (Makes 3-4 portions)

Ingredients:

  • 1 large Bramley apple
  • 1 ready-ripe pear
  • Caster sugar/Mild-flavoured honey (1-2tbsp/to taste)

Method:

  1. Peel, quarter, core and finely slice the fruit.
  2. On a medium heat, put the fruit, sugar/honey and a dash of water in a large saucepan and let it simmer and soften for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Once you get a balance of mushy and firmer fruit, remove the pan from the heat and leave to cool. This can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

 

 

For the Breakfast Parfait (Makes 1 portion)

Ingredients:

  • 4 generous tablespoons Apple and pear compote
  • 2-3 tbsp Coconut yoghurt (Rachel's Greek-style, or Co-yo as a dairy-free alternative)
  • 1 small banana (sliced)
  • 2-3 tsp chia seeds

Method:

  1. Find yourself a tumbler-sized glass/large ramekin.
  2. Add the ingredients to the glass/ramekin one by one, layering so that they do not intermix before eating.
  3. Get a spoon and enjoy your super-nourishing Breakfast Parfait!

 

Notes:

  • This is a super versatile breakfast and can easily be bulked up if you need something more substantial. For example, adding muesli instead of/in addition to the chia seeds. Pumpkin seeds are also a brilliant addition for a little crunch.
