Apple Breakfast

Yup! Apples again. Continuing with the apple recipes, I wanted to show you this recipe I learnt from my husband. It is not only delicious, yummy, but super ultra healthy! And its basic ingredients mix is delicious to enjoy, to nurturing our body, but as well our face-skin or can be used as well as a quick stomach/digestive system healer after strong foods, or after having some problems that make you go to visit the bathroom too often hehe (more tips ahead!)

This is basically a quick and raw mix of Apples, always perfect Yoghurt, Oatmeal flakes, sugar honey (better instead of sugar), grounded hazelnuts, cinnamon and cloves.

This mix is a powerful and energizing breakfast that will fill you up with energies while it nurtures you, protects your digestive system, and add all the extra benefits from all its ingredients.

(2-4 servings)

  • 2 Apples
  • 4-6 Natural Oatmeal flakes
  • 6-8 Tbsp Natural Yoghurt (without sugar)
  • 4 Tbsp Grounded Hazelnuts
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar / 2 Tbsp Honey (you can use sugar if you don't have honey at hand, as when I made the photo)
  • 1 tsp grounded Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp grounded Cloves

Carefully clean the apples, remove the core and peel them off. Slice them in halves, and then the halves in smaller pieces. Or you can grate them, depending on the texture you want to enjoy in the end. Grated: Softer creamy. Bigger pieces: you can actually munch the fresh apple.

In a big bowl, mix all except the yoghurt.

Then add the yoghurt and mix energically and very well.

Serve in separate smaller bowls. Enjoy!

Tip: tastes even better after letting it rest for some (5 to15) minutes.

Other uses:

Face-Skin Healer Mask:

Grate 1/2 apple, 2 Tbsp natural yoghurt, 2 Tbsp honey, 2 Tbsp oatmeal flakes. Mix all and you will obtain an excellent nurturing, cleansing and refreshing (skin healer I call it) mask. After cleaning very well the skin of your face, apply the mask carefully and leave it for around 15 minutes. Wash away with warm water (don't use any kind of soap). Dry with a soft warm face-towel. Your skin will thank you!

Stomach/Digestive system healer:

As in the Face-Skin Healer Mask, for 1 person: grate 1/2 apple, 1 Tbsp honey (half amount), 1 Tbsp oatmeal flakes and 2 Tbsp of natural yoghurt for each half apple. (In case of intolerance to milk products, you can use same amount of warm water). Just let the sick person eat the mix and rest.
