This breakfast is probiotic and prebiotic. It provides good bacteria themselves for a healthy gut, and it provides the food for our good gut bacteria. The bacteria are hidden in the yogurt and the food for the bacteria in the inulin, but also in the fiber of the berries, oatmeal, chia seeds, figs and nuts. Inulin can’t be digested by our digestive enzymes, so that 100% of it are for our good gut bacteria.
The best is to prepare the jars in the evening already. Then they can soak overnight and you will save a lot of time in the morning because you just have to take them out of the fridge and put them in your pocket.
Ig you’ve forgotten to make them in the evenening, you still can make them in the morning (it takes up to 5 minutes) but then you should wait about 2 hours until you eat them at work.
Recipe (for 3 glasses)
2 cups frozen (or fresh) blueberries
300g coconut yogurt (or other natural yoghurt)
6 tablespoons chia seeds
6 tablespoons of oatmeal
12 dried dates
3 tablespoons Inulin powder
350ml almond milk (or other plant milk), depending on consistency maybe a little bit more
6 tablespoons of hazelnuts or almonds
3-6 figs (optional)
Blend blueberries, dates, inulin powder and milk. Cut the figs into small pieces and chop the nuts or almonds coarsely. Now mix all the ingredients in a well lockable glass. Leave it overnight in the fridge, or take it directly to work. but in the second case, you should wait about 2 hours until you eat them. You can keep them for up to 2 days in the refrigerator.
If you prefer the layer effect like in the picture, first let the chia seeds and oatmeal soak overnight or for at least 2 hours in the milk. Blend the blueberries with the dates. Mix Inulin powder with yoghurt. Cut the dates in thin slices and press some on the inside glass of the jar. Now put everything in layers into the jars.
