Yoghurt Pots

What is the one thing that you will always compromise when short on time?   Breakfast!  there are times I will happily sacrifice food for sleep, especially on a weekday.   So what if you could prepare something in advance, and just grab it and eat in on the go?   well look no further, the solution is here ladies and gents!

Yoghurt Pots are a great and convenient way of making breakfast for people on the go. I don’t know about you, but we collect and keep used jam jars in the hopes that one day they will “come in handy”, and by gosh, that day arrived this morning.

With the help of the previously loved jam jars, we were able to make yogurt pots. Alternatively, you can also do this in Tupperware containers, etc. To make this particular yogurt pot I layered mango and passion fruit yogurt with a spoonful of raspberry bonne maman jam, one kiwi, cereal, topped off with yoghurt covered raisins. It made for delicious eating — I dug the spoon down to the bottom and it came up with a bite of everything.

These yoghurt pots can be made to your specification, plain yoghurt, with blueberries, chopped walnuts and a drizzle of honey will work equally well, you don’t have to use jam if you don’t wish, why not substitute with stewed fruit? ruhbarb or apple? why not make a few different varieties and pop them in the fridge to have to hand for the week ahead?

What do I need?

  • Yoghurt – any variety you prefer. (I used passion fruit and mango here)
  • Fruit – any kind, kiwi’s, blueberries, strawberries etc
  • Jam – optional, but any flavour to suit your taste, I used Bonne Maman raspberry jam here.
  • Nuts – any variety of nut, walnuts, brazil nuts, pistachio’s, or try granola or plain cereal to give that lovely crunch.

What do I do?

    This recipe is fairly straight forward, requires no cooking, just layering… for this particular recipe:

  • Place a few yogurt covered raisins at the bottom of the jar
  • Layer with jam
  • Add a few spoons of yogurt over the jam and raisins
  • For texture and bite you can add nuts, granola or crispy cereal (whatever you have going)
  • Cover with another layer of yogurt
  • Peel and chop one kiwi, sprinkle over top
  • Simply repeat step 3 above to finish.
