These absolutely delicious ‘pear and grape vanilla bean yoghurt cups’ make a perfect healthy breakfast, snack or dessert. It is a wonderful source of probiotics, to promote the growth of good bacteria in your gut. This is important for good digestion and a strong functioning immune system.

You can also use stewed fruit for a warm winters breakie. Yum!!!
2 small ripe pears
Handful of green grapes
Vanilla bean yoghurt – I love Barambah organics vanilla bean yoghurt. You can make your own with some natural yoghurt, some vanilla bean seeds and a pinch of cinnamon.
Handful of sunflower and pumpkin seeds
Handful of whole raw almonds
Some Brazil nuts
Spoonful of chia seeds
Handful of coconut flakes
Handful of whole oats
Drizzle of raw organic honey
Dice up your pears and put them into two glasses. Halve the grapes and add some to each glass.
Pour a good serving of yoghurt over your fruit.
In a food processor add all the other ingredients and pulse until you have small pieces. Pour mixture over the yoghurt and then top with some grapes and an almond to make it look pretty. Then enjoy!
Keep any leftover nut and seed mix in the fridge to sprinkle over breakfast cereal, add to smoothies or sprinkle over yoghurt.
