This makes a fresh tasting and creamy yoghurt. The coconut adds sweetness, but if it is too tart for you, drizzle with maple syrup.
1 tart apple (I use Granny Smith) 1½ cups wholegrain oats ¼ cup coconut flakes 2 Tbsp freeze dried blackcurrants ½ cups plain unsweetened yoghurt ½ cup water Milk or extra yoghurt to thin, optional Chopped hazelnuts or walnuts for serving Maple syrup, optional
1 Peel the apple and grate on a box grater. Put oats and grated apple in a bowl, add coconut and blackcurrants and mix in yoghurt and water. Cover and chill overnight.
2 To serve, check consistency and thin with extra water or milk if necessary. Dish into bowls and top with chopped nuts.
Blackcurrants are exceptionally high in antioxidants and Vitamin C. Viberi is a certified organic orchard in South Canterbury producing freeze-dried blackcurrants. They’re readily available in New Zealand. Fresh raspberries make a good substitute but add them just before serving.
