Health In a bowl – 2 ( Oats and passion fruit/ kiwi)

 

Hello Beautiful World!

So this is the second breakfast bowl I would like to share with you. The morning’s are still really cold and I am running out of onesies for my son. The nights are colder and our heater running all night, cause my son refuses to cover him self with a blanket or a comforter. So much that his baby ears are ice cold in the mornings and his nose is as pink as a rose. We have come to enjoy oats in any fashion. Maybe it be with apples or with just nuts or a variety of fruits.

This bowl is one such bowl. Its really easy to make and it hardly takes time to prepare. Unlike many Indian breakfasts there is no time required for “fermentation” or ¬† “preparation”. So do try this one out.

 

Ingredients :-

  1. Oats – 3 – 4 tbsp
  2. Milk – 1 cup ( i used the low fat kind but any should work) + Almond milk is excellent
  3. Kiwi – 1 ( skin peeled off and sliced)
  4. Passion Fruit -1
  5. Almonds – 8 – 10
  6. Coconut Sugar – 1 tsp

Instructions :-

  1. In a pan, heat milk . Add oats to the milk and bring to a boil
  2. Then reduce heat and let the oats cook in the  milk. Stir occasionally to ensure that they do not settle to the bottom
  3. Once it has cooked well, pour into a bowl
  4. Cut passion fruit into two and scoop out the pulp within
  5. Now start from one side and add the passionfruit first
  6. Chopped Kiwi second
  7. Arrange almonds how ever you fancy
  8. Finally sprinkle sugar to the side
  9. Devour!!
  10. Stay healthy !! Eat Healthy

Oats and Banana Breakfast Bowl

 

Its been drizzling all night and morning and the cold wind seems to some how find its way through shut doors and windows. I can hear a bird call out and my neighbour sneeze every now and then. Yes winter is very close. The light in my dining room is a shade of blue and grey and my white marble floor seems to look like two men blowing plumes of smoke at each other. The only thing moving is yellow toy tortoise that my son refuses to let go of. Yes my morning looks like a bottle of grey paint was splashed on a big ball of cotton!

So while I am deciding what to bake and make for this week I felt an urge to make banana bread. But it would be nicer if I could transform the same flavours into a bowl of healthy oats right? So that is how this bowl came about. This is my healthy yet flavourful bowl of breakfast banana and oats.

Ingredients :-

  1. Oats – 3 tbsp
  2. Milk – 1 cup
  3. Coconut Sugar – 1/2 tsp
  4. Walnuts – as much as you like
  5. Banana – 1 sliced
  6. Cinnamon Powder – 1/4 tsp

Instructions :-

  1. Bowl milk in a bowl on low flame and add oats
  2. Once the milk comes to a bowl, reduce the heat and cook till the milk reduces and the oats is nice and thick
  3. Now pour the cooked oats into a bowl
  4. Start from one end and add walnuts, bananas, sprinkle coconut sugar and cinnamon powder at the end
  5. Serve right away!
