Sometimes I find myself debating if I should buy my children small tubs of organic yoghurt for school lunches…
Truth be told, my kids find even the small tubs of organic yoghurt are “too big” or “too much” and they won’t eat it all. Which is perfect, as dairy is ideally just a condiment.
Here’s a delicious alternative from Lunchbox Solutions that you can assemble in a small container for your child (or eager adult) that combines fruit, museli, chia seeds and yoghurt. If your school has a no nut policy then leave them out—but even then I’m sure there will still be lunchbox envy. Remember to include a spoon!!
Mango And Passionfruit Yoghurt Parfait With Toasted Muesli
This yoghurt parfait is an exquisite, healthy snack. It’s easy to make and within minutes you will have a sweet treat that everyone will love!
You can use either homemade yoghurt or a biodynamic, additive-free brand. As for the toasted muesli, you can make up your own or use your favourite, high quality brand.
We have included bee pollen because it is an incredible superfood—a highly absorbable source of protein that is rich in amino acids, vitamins, carbohydrates, minerals, enzymes and other micronutrients. It works well with these fresh ingredients (bee pollen cannot be cooked as it destroys its medicinal strength).
1-1½ cups plain biodynamic yoghurt
¼ – ½ cup agave syrup or honey, to taste
2 teaspoons bee pollen
1 cup toasted muesli
2 ripe mangos, peeled, pitted and cubed
Pulp of 4 ripe passionfruits
½ cup flaked almonds or macadamia nuts
A few chia seeds (to sprinkle on top)
In a medium bowl gently mix the yoghurt, agave syrup (or honey) and bee pollen until well combined. Check for sweetness and add a little more if needed.
Place a little of the yogurt mixture in the bottom of each serving container (for a great presentation, use glass tumblers). Add a small layer of toasted muesli, followed by a layer of mango, passionfruit pulp and nuts. Repeat the layers until all the ingredients have been used, finishing with the passionfruit pulp, nuts and a sprinkle of chia seeds for decoration.
Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.
