When I was young I always loved a “fruithapje”. A dish made out of fruits and other delicious things for breakfast or as a snack.
Organice Your Life team member Dirk Verest and I played with the ingredients and came up with the following modern version of my preferred baby food!
Remember: the eye wants something too, so think of a fun way to display your food, like in a recycled glass jar! Dirk used a 400ml jar. Which he thought was the right size for the right amount of food for a full feeling during the rest of the morning.
Shopping list for 1: (buy organic and local whenever possible)
– organic (Greek) yoghurt
– 1 Apple
– 1 Kiwi
– 1 Mango
– 1 Grapefruit
– About 2 tablespoons of Teff. a type of grain from Africa that is healthy & gluten free, which is Dirk’s favorite grain, and which one spoon helps to keep the shredded fruits form a cohesive mass. (It has to soak up the fruitjuices) You can also try it without Teff, or try another dry breakfast product like oatmeal, Brinta, or Liga, but from our experience this works the best.
– handful of your preferred muesli.
How to make:
Add layers of yoghurt, muesli & shaved fruits in a jar.
This one has layers of:
fruits: * Shaved organic apple & mango, * Cut Kiwis in cubes between. *Mixed with Teff for fibers and essential minerals, * Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice.
Yoghurt: Greek organic yoghurt.
Crunch: organic crunchy muesli.
Costs: Less than €3 euros per person, maybe even less. It all depends on what fruits you put in that make the price go up. The more local and in season fruits you buy, the cheaper it is! Everything is for sale at a regular supermarket, the teff is only available in specialized organic food stores or for sale online.
