Preperation Time:
10 mins
Cooking Time:
4 mins

Ingredients:

  1. Granola, enough to fill half the glass
  2. 3 to 4 heaped tablespoons Yoghurt (add more if you like)
  3. Apple; finely chopped (any sweet eating apple like royal gala etc. If you like a little tartness, you can add granny smith apples)
  4. 1 small banana; finely chopped
  5. Almonds, finely chopped (optional)

Procedure:

  1. Hang the curd in a muslin/cheese cloth for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Cut up the fruits and keep aside.
  3. Take a cup/glass and add granola into it.
  4. Add the hung curd to make a second layer.
  5. Now add finely chopped fruits and nuts to make a third layer.

Notes:

1. You can basically use any combination of granola, fruits and even nuts that you like. This dish works with any kind of fruit. You could use all kinds of berries and stone-fruit like peaches, nectarines, plums and cherries etc.

2. In case your child is allergic to nuts, toasted flax seeds or sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds are a good alternative.

Granola is an extremely popular breakfast and snack food with a wealth of health benefits. Rolled oats provide lots of fiber, which is important for digestion, and the fruits and nuts in granola can contain important vitamins and promote good health. Granola is a perfect breakfast for your child, filling and healthy. While granola and milk is the most common breakfast combination, it can be made interesting by adding a whole lot of other ingredients to it. And if served in pretty cups or glasses, breakfast just gets a whole lot more fun.

This recipe also makes an excellent ‘on-the-go’ brekkie for your older kids who like to eat a second breakfast at school. Just pack these up in mason jars and they are good to go.
