    150g high fibre Porridge Oats

    25g dried Cranberries

    50g ready-to-eat Apricots, chopped

    25g Sultanas

    300ml Unsweetened Apple Juice

    8 tbsp low-fat, lower Sugar Natural Yoghurt

    100g frozen Blueberries, thawed (fresh are also fine)

    100g frozen Raspberries, thawed (fresh are also fine)


    In a large bowl, mix together the porridge oats, cranberries, apricots and sultanas. Add the apple juice and stir well. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

    In the morning, share the soaked mixture between 4 cereal bowls.

    Spoon 2 tbsp of low-fat, lower sugar natural yoghurt onto each portion. Share the blueberries and raspberries between the bowls.


    1. As a change from raspberries and blueberries, top with sliced banana or chopped fresh apple instead.

    2. Try using dried cherries instead of cranberries and raisins instead of sultanas.

    3. Without the yoghurt, this is a dairy-free recipe. Use a low fat soya-based yoghurt if you prefer.
