Put a spring in your step with this vibrant fruit cup – a sweet melange of strawberries, bananas, oats, chia seeds and yogurt makes for a vitalising yet delicious sweet treat. You'll need to let the mixture rest for a minimum of three hours, so why not make it the night before so it's ready for when you wake up?

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas with the oats, yogurt, milk or almond milk and chia seeds. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours or up to 12 hours. The mixture will thicken as the oats and chia seeds absorb the liquid and swell up.
  2. When ready to serve, put a layer of sliced strawberries in the bases of four serving glasses. Spoon a generous layer of the banana-oat mixture on top and add a drizzle of honey, if you like. Repeat the layers of strawberry and banana to use all the mixture up then finish with an extra spoonful of yogurt and the remaining strawberries. Add a final drizzle of honey, if using.

Tip: If you prefer, you can use plain natural yogurt instead of vanilla yogurt in this, but you may wish to add a teaspoon or two of maple syrup or honey to it. This recipe can easily be made vegan – use vanilla Coyo (coconut ‘yogurt’) in place of normal yogurt, unsweetened almond milk instead of cow’s milk and maple syrup rather than honey, if you do choose to add any extra sweetness.
