Use this recipe as more of a guide than a strict rulebook. You can choose your dried fruit of choice, pick your nuts and seeds and top what whatever fruit you desire or is in season.
Make a big batch at the start of the week - easy breakfasts come morning time!
If you don’t have any juice, regular milk or nut milk will do. Even water is fine! If you find the mixture is too thick in the morning, add a little extra liquid or yoghurt to mix through.
